At the Water's Edge by Sara Gruen, 348 pages
The trio ends up in Scotland, during the war no less, searching for the Loch Ness monster in an attempt to redeem themselves. They're not much respected there either and tensions grow. Maddie struggles to free herself from her uppercrust snobbery, much to the dismay of her husband. The search is on for the monster . . . but just who is the real monster . . .
It took nearly half the book until I started to enjoy it, but then I really did. This is one I will recommend to others. Sara Gruen, author of "Water for Elephants" may not receive the same acclaim for this, her most recent book, but it was still a winner for me.
