5 Things I love About HBO’s The Gilded Age (And one thing I’m on the fence about…)
I binge-watched HBO’s The Gilded Age (created by Julian Fellowes of Downton Abbey fame) over the past couple weeks, and I have thoughts: I LOVED IT!
Murder at Macbeth is just the kind of book you’d want to read relaxing by the pool in the summer or curled up under a blanket on a cold winter’s night. It’s the kind of book you can’t seem to put down, even when you know you should be doing other things!
The story is told through a series of police interviews and flashbacks after a small theater production of Macbeth goes horribly wrong. As the story unfolds, so does the tangled web of personal dramas that entwines the cast of the play, including its director. As each character comes to life before your eyes, you start to realize that any one of them could be the mastermind behind that fateful night–so who’s really to blame? Could it be a team effort?
Every time I thought I’d figured out whodunit, new information came to light that shifted my suspicions elsewhere. It wasn’t until close to the end that I was pretty certain who was behind the theatrical crime, and even then I wasn’t sure until the story confirmed it. There were so many wonderful twists and turns in this story, it certainly kept me guessing!
I had an absolute blast reading this book and highly recommend it! The best part of all is that starting today (6/20), the Murder at Macbeth e-book is on sale for 99 cents/99p on Amazon for a week! You can also read it for free if you have Kindle Unlimited!
Also, be sure to check back here on Friday when I’ll be sharing an interview I did with the author of Murder at Macbeth, Samantha Goodwin!
