Book Club Book Review: The Dry By Jane Harper

My Book Club's pick for the month of May was The Dry by Jane Harper.

It took me a little longer to read with our little Miss A's arrival thus why this book review is a few months late! Hopefully I'll find the time to get back into my reading list soon as I have a few new release books I'm dying to read and review.

This is an Australian outback murder mystery set in a rural drought affected town called Kiewarra in Victoria.

The main character Aaron, now a Federal Police Investigator, was accused of a murder 20 years ago and reluctantly returns to his home town to attend funerals of his former best friend Luke and his family.

The story quickly unfolds as Aaron tries to solve two murders - one from the past and one from the present.

This is a really fast paced mystery, with realistic characters which really made the story believable, and an interesting storyline from both the past and the present.

It took me a couple of months to finish this book as I was only able to read a chapter here and there but it was an easy story to pick up from each time and was a really easy book to read.

I recommend this book to Australian crime readers.

I give this book 5 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again
2 Not Good - I'd rather watch paint dry than read this again
3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
4 Good - I'd give up a bottle of the worlds best champagne for this read
5 Great - I'd pass up a date with Ryan Gosling for this read
