Mare Of Easttown Season 1

ASIN ‏ : ‎  B0986DHDVV AMAZON Kate Winslet stars in this limited series as a small-town Pennsylvania detective who investigates a local murder as her own life crumbles around her.  Also starring Julianne Nicholson, Jean Smart, Angourie Rice, Evan Peters, Cailee Spaeny, David Denman, John Douglas Thompson, Patrick Murney, Ben Miles, James McArdle, Sosie Bacon, Joe Tippett and Neal Huff. REVIEW: This is an incredible series that murder mystery lovers will really enjoy.  The hubby watched some of the series with me, and that was surprising. Dramatic mysteries are not really his thing, but at times he was rapt. He even commented at the end that this was a fantastic show that he was surprised at himself for liking. The subject matter is not an easy one to digest, but when done properly such as this series, you will find yourself immersed in the story. Wanting to know the who, why, when and where. The hubby did walk away at a couple of moments that were hard to watch. After

All Adults Here - Emma Straub (37)

ASIN: ‎  B07YRVH8NN Publisher: ‎  Riverhead Books (May 4 2020) Kindle: ‎  2704 KB Print: ‎  366 pages AMAZON When Astrid Strick witnesses a school bus accident in the center of town, it jostles loose a repressed memory from her young parenting days decades earlier. Suddenly, Astrid realizes she was not quite the parent she thought she'd been to her three, now-grown children. But to what consequence? Astrid's youngest son is drifting and unfocused, making parenting mistakes of his own. Her daughter is pregnant yet struggling to give up her own adolescence.
