#amreading – What, Why, While :  Kerry Tucker Learns to Live by Louise Voss  @LouiseVoss1 @bookouture

What (am I currently reading)?

I am currently reading the contemporary novel Kerry Tucker Learns to Live by Louise Voss.  This is being published on 6th October 2022 by Bookouture.

Sometimes you have to reach the end of the road before you can start over.

Kerry is perfectly happy with her life. She gets up at the same time every day to deliver post in the winding lanes and little villages around where she lives, stopping for a chat at some of the houses along the way. Once a month she has Sunday lunch with her sister Beth’s perfect family, to eat roast chicken while Beth tells her why she should want more out of life.

Beth thinks Kerry is kidding herself. She thinks Kerry needs to move out of the horrible little apartment converted from the garage in their parents’ garden, find a better job, and maybe even meet a man. And now their parents’ house is up for sale, Beth is going to make sure Kerry gets a life… whether Kerry likes it or not.

Kerry knows something Beth doesn’t, though. She knows the happiest of marriages can hide dark secrets, and that even the people you love most in the world can betray you. She’s known that since she was seventeen years old, when she learned her father’s secret.

It’s far safer not to get close to people…

Isn’t it? 

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

I’m reading this because it is by Louise Voss.   Having previously read The Old You and The Last Stage, both psychological thrillers, I was excited to see a new book coming out by this great author, albeit in a different genre.   For me what makes Louise Voss’ books so enjoyable is the strength of the characters, and therefore my involvement with what is going on within the pages.  I am hoping this will  be the case in Kerry Tucker Learns to Live.

While (I am reading it)

I have been astounded at the amount of time and energy (day and night!) a new kitten takes up.  Rex has moved in, and is a bundle of energy, he doesn’t have a walk mode, he only does sprint, climb, attack and cuddle.   He is wonderful!    

All the best, Emma
