    • Fiona Davis & Parkinson’s Disease When I got to the point of Marion disclosing her Parkinson's Disease, I was extra emotional knowing that Fiona Davis was also diagnosed in recent years. I loved Marion's determination to keep doing as much as she could, but I wondered about all the complex emotions that must have gone into writing this part of the plot. What did you think about this aspect of the story and writing?

    • Disappointed Am I the only one? I hate to be the downer here, but this was my least favorite Fiona Davis book. I found the writing a bit stiff and simplistic. Marion and Peter going off on their own to solve the bomber case was silly and unrealistic. Also, they saw each other for the first time in over 30 years and they immediately knew they were meant to be...come on, they knew each other for two months when they were in their 20s.

    • Marion’s Decisions… Marion had many hard choices, like trying out for the Rockettes, accepting the job despite her father's demands, choosing her happiness over a marriage proposal, and returning to care for her father despite all his bad choices and actions. Did you agree with all her decisions?

    • Suspension of Reality? I really enjoyed this book! But I found parts that really stretched my suspension of reality.  I thought it showed incredibly poor judgment when Marion and Peter broke into the home of a known serial killer! What did you think?
