56 Days

By: Catherine Ryan Howard

Goodreads description:

No one knew they’d moved in together. Now one of them is dead. Could this be the perfect murder?

Ciara and Oliver meet in a supermarket queue in Dublin the same week Covid-19 reaches Irish shores.

When lockdown threatens to keep them apart, Oliver suggests that Ciara move in with him. She sees a unique opportunity for a new relationship to flourish without the pressure of scrutiny of family and friends. He sees it as an opportunity to hide who – and what – he really is.

Detectives arrive at Oliver’s apartment to discover a decomposing body inside.

Will they be able to determine what really happened, or has lockdown provided someone with the opportunity to commit the crime?

Covid thriller- too soon? I listened to this on a Thanksgiving flight. I saved it for last because it seemed the easiest to digest/read. It was kind of a struggle because I am sick of the psychological crime genre. Highly implausible ending- skip it!

Meh…My least favorite book of the month. Basically, it was a drag that drug out way too long. I didn’t care much about any of the characters, they were unrelatable, and the story was not really believable. I kept trying to visualize the setting, but I just couldnt make anything connect. Kind of like the COVID environment itself – disconnected, unrelatable and drug out way too long.
