"Looks Interesting Tuesdays"... TIGERS IN RED WEATHER by Liza Klaussmann (Adult)

Very often I come across books that sound like really, really good reads that I want to read, but never have the chance to! Doesn't mean that I shouldn't still share my findings ;) 
Introducing "Looks Interesting..." Tuesdays!!! 

Sounds interesting... TIGERS IN RED WEATHER
by Liza Klaussmann
Release date: July 17th, 2013
Published by: Little, Brown and Company
Genre: Adult, Historical Fiction
Format: Hardback, Paperback, eBook, Audio


"Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summer heat, sunbleached boat docks, and midnight gin parties on Martha's Vineyard in a glorious old family estate known as Tiger House. In the days following the end of the Second World War, the world seems to offer itself up, and the two women are on the cusp of their 'real lives': Helena is off to Hollywood and a new marriage, while Nick is heading for a reunion with her own young husband, Hughes, about to return from the war. 

Soon the gilt begins to crack. Helena's husband is not the man he seemed to be, and Hughes has returned from the war distant, his inner light curtained over. On the brink of the 1960s, back at Tiger House, Nick and Helena--with their children, Daisy and Ed--try to recapture that sense of possibility. But when Daisy and Ed discover the victim of a brutal murder, the intrusion of violence causes everything to unravel. The members of the family spin out of their prescribed orbits, secrets come to light, and nothing about their lives will ever be the same."

Brilliantly told from five points of view, with a magical elegance and suspenseful dark longing, Tigers in Red Weather is an unforgettable debut novel from a writer of extraordinary insight and accomplishment.


Tigers in Red Weather is describe to be a "Gatsby-esque debut novel about a murder that disrupts a family's life on mid-twentieth-century Martha's Vineyard, taking place over a 20 year span." 

I have a soft spot for Historical Fiction, especially stories that have a realistic family history and mystery to them. Sounds like a very suspenseful quick summer read!
