Kissed a Sad Goodbye by Deborah Crombie
Yes, it’s that time again. Another Deborah Crombie Kincaid/James mystery! Although it was not as enthralling and dramatic as the previous entry, Dreaming of the Bones, Kissed a Sad Goodbye did not disappoint. I know I’ve become a broken record when it comes to extolling the virtues of Deborah Crombie’s character development but, for me, it is the best part of her writing and something that is sorely lacking from many novels. I also found the mystery elements in Kissed a Sad Goodbye to be entertaining. The plot jumps back and forth between the present day murder investigation and an intriguing backstory that takes place during the Second World War. If you, like me, enjoy a good English mystery novel, please give Deborah Crombie a try.
