    BOTM pick for December 2019 Long Bright River is a book that I almost passed on, thinking that I didn t want the responsibility of reviewing it The author has a fiercely loyal fanbase, and literary fiction is a genre that is risky for me to dabble in at best After circling the book s Goodreads page for months, the synopsis had a relentless grip on me, and something checked in my spirit telling me I needed to read this book Perhaps it was the emotional investment in the opioid crisis, due to BOTM pick for Decem...

    I would categorize this as literary suspense It has the elements of a police procedural but the writing is so much better than that Mickey is a beat cop walking the mean drug addicted streets of Philadelphia while her sister, Kacey, lives on those very streets as a strung out sex worker The cop watches out for her sister despite their estrangement and becomes alarmed when a number of prostitute...

    Long Bright River is a slow burn, suspense novel rather than a thriller It is an emotional, heartbreaking story of sister love, drug addiction and forgiveness.The story is narrated by Michaela Mickey who is the older better sister Mickey is a cop and worries about Kacey who is a drug addict and hasn t been seen for a few weeks Whilst I normally like books told from only the main character s point of view, in this case I felt like the story would have benefited from another narrator While Long Bright River is a slow burn, suspense novel rather than a thriller It is an emotional, heartbreaking story of sister love, drug addiction and forgiveness The story is narrated by Michaela Mickey who is the older better sister Mickey is a cop and worries about Kacey who is a drug addict and hasn t been seen for a few weeks Whilst I normally like books told from only the main character s point of view, in this case I felt like the story would have benefited from...
