What's everyone reading as the weekend is in sight?
I have just started The Sick Rose by Erin Kelly, a Ruth Rendell-type psychological suspense novel set around the restoration of the garden of a crumbling Elizabethan mansion where Louisa and Paul, whose backgrounds are very different, meet and find they are both escaping the past.
One of the things which drew me to this was that garden setting, and the fact that in the reading guide at the back of the book, Erin Kelly lists among the books that helped inspire her The Lost Gardens Of Heligan by Tim Smit and The Morville Hours: The Story of a Garden by Katherine Swift, both of which I've read and enjoyed enormously (there are posts on the latter here and here).
I'm only twenty or so pages in so can't say much about it yet, but it has had very good reviews. Has anyone read it or Erin's first book, The Poison Tree?
Please tell us your Friday reads, good, bad or indifferent.
