The Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman

3.5 stars
R-2?
Tess Monaghan #11
novella
Copy received for review

This was my first Tess Monaghan, which was kind of problematic, since it's #11.

I liked the mystery, but struggled with the characters, their relationships, and most of all with Tess' feelings about pregnancy.  Pregnancy is no walk in the park, I know.  I kind of hate being pregnant overall, but I always want the baby.  It's always intentional.  So I couldn't relate to the really negative feelings there.

If I "knew" the characters I'm pretty sure I'd have liked it more.

Overall, the mystery was good, but the ins and outs of the relationships eluded me.
