BOOK REVIEW: MY SOUL TO TAKE
BY YRSA SIGURDARDOTTIR
We hope you enjoy this book review by
Thora receives a phone call from one of her clients, Jonas, who just recently purchased some property. The property is an old converted farmhouse that has a very lengthy history. Jonas informs Thora that the sellers did not divulge some information to him and he wants to take action against them. Thora was startled to find out that Jonas believed his new place was haunted.
Thora really did not believe what Jonas was saying but in order to accommodate him she flew to the new property and assured Jonas that she would investigate. Once Thora starts her investigation, she finds some secrets that change her mind about not believing Jonas.
The corpse of a young woman is discovered. She was badly beaten and had pins inserted into her feet. It does not take long for Jonas to become the main suspect. Then another murder occurs. Is Jonas guilty or is something else going on?
Fearing danger is present, her new romantic interest, Matthew, informs Thora that he will arrive soon to be with her.
Does Thora find out the truth about what is going on?
This is the second novel by Yrsa Sigurdardottir and I can honestly say that she is quickly becoming one of my favorite sleuths. What really makes this author’s novels so special is the way she includes the intriguing folklore and beauty of Iceland as part of her stories. The author has created a lead character in Thora who manages to take the reader through all kinds of happenings in her life - from juggling her law practice to caring for her teen-age son, dealing with an ex-husband and getting involved in a new romance which is enough to make anyone’s head spin. My Soul to Take is fast paced and well-written so be sure to add it to your reading list.
