Reading for Me

The Books I Have Read…..Just for Me

#13: An Accidental Woman (Barbara Delinsky)

on August 8, 2014

Somehow I tend to forget just how much I enjoy Barbara Delinsky’s work until I pick up another audio version of one of her books. An Accidental Woman was another enjoyable read (although the title’s meaning still confuses me).

The story follows Heather Malone, a young woman in rural New England, enjoying life with her boyfriend Micah and his two daughters on their farm. Without warning, the FBI shows up on their doorstep and charges Heather (or is her name really Lisa?) with a murder of a man 15 years ago on the other side of the country. The entire town is thrown into an uproar as they begin to search for answers about Heather’s past. Heather remains silent and seems to be hiding something both tragic and traumatic. Leading the charge for answers is Heather’s best friend, Poppy — a smart woman dealing with the personal pain of her past resulting from a snow mobile accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down. Poppy is assisted by Griffin Hughes, the investigative reporter who unknowingly led the FBI to the small town and upset Heather’s peaceful existence.

Filled with heart and carefully crafted story lines, An Accidental Woman will please the most cynical of readers and touch your heart as you root for both Heather and Poppy. Definitely worth adding to your to-read stack!
