Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

A few months ago, when living in Denver, Allison @ The Book Wheel and I randomly blog met and then real-life met.  One of the first things we did (after making sure we weren’t scary people that we met online) was exchange photo 3book suggestions.  And the book suggestion Allison gave me months ago was Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann.

Nick and her cousin Helena marry well. . . or so they think at first.  Nick’s husband Hughes doesn’t provide enough love and affection, so she seeks it elsewhere.  Helena’s husband is a loser, and their son, Ed, seems to be a little “off.”  Ed and Daisy (Nick & Hughes’ daughter) discover a murdered maid, and things begin to fall apart rapidly.

I really enjoyed Tigers in Red Weather.  I like how sections of the book are told from the perspectives of all of the main characters, sometimes overlapping to give a very well-rounded point of view.

Tigers is subtly but keeps your interest.  It’s a great summer read, being “beachy” but not light and fluffy, taking place in the 50s and 60s.

Here’s a quote I loved from the book:

“If there’s one thing you can be sure about in this life, it’s that you won’t always be kissing the right person” – Nick, p. 140

What book are you looking forward to for a summer read?

  1. I had to go hunting on my blog to remember my thoughts about this read.

    As I said back when I read it, I think I would have liked this a LOT more if I hadn’t just finished reading Gone Girl. The suspense and craziness in Gone Girl overshadowed this one for me.


    • I totally get what you’re saying. I always think that having to go back and remind yourself on book thoughts is not a positive for the book. When that happens to me, it’s always like a “3”


  2. I like the cover and setting and been considering it for a while, but you saying about the way you get a rounded picture, that’s someone I love so I’ll definitely look for this one.


  3. Stopping by from SITS sharefest. Sounds like a cool book , thanks for the suggestion.

    I haven’t thought much about what I want to read next, kinda take it one book at a time 🙂
