"...but because of the noise of the rain on the roof or the distance, Pru couldn't tell whom it was."

 

This is grammatically incorrect, right? This is at least the second time "whom" has been used in a way I'm pretty sure is wrong.

 

Edit: Just in case I misheard it, I googled it, and this is what it says in the book as well.

"I trust you, Christopher."

 

Ooh, I'm taking points off for this convo and the stuff that led up to it. Pru is saying one thing, but her actions are demonstrating something else entirely. If she really trusted him, she wouldn't have actively interfered with him doing his job. This is at least the second time they've had to go over this. It also emphasizes that it was a bad idea for Christopher to date someone so closely involved in the case.

 

While I'm thankful that this series doesn't have a love triangle, at this point anyway, it still has some immensely frustrating relationship moments.

Wait, what? Why would the hospital give someone who I assume was knocked unconscious a "light sedative"? Unless the nurse meant that Pru was unconscious because someone gave her a light sedative, in which case [redacted character's] story should be immediately suspect.

Pru is too trusting. At least one suspicious-acting person in her life has already turned out to be bad news. Now I'm worried about another person close to her, one who seems to be keeping important details from her. Pru even knows this person has kept stuff from her. Why isn't she wondering what else they might be hiding?

 

And OMG, mice don't move whole pieces of furniture. I get that it can be comforting to lie to yourself about things that worry or scare you, but Pru takes it to a whole new level.

Today was not a good day - too much built-up stress and not enough opportunity to let it drain off over the weekend. I'm trying to decompress a little by playing some mindless computer games while listening to this. Hopefully I'll be easier to be around by tomorrow.

 

Pru and DCI Pearse are now on a first-name basis - his name is Charles. And yes, he's definitely the love interest. They went on a date, and ended up sharing an umbrella. It was sweet. I'm a little surprised that a guy like Charles would date someone involved, even if only tangentially, in an ongoing investigation. But I do like him. As it turns out, he isn't just a fan of hedgehogs but badgers as well. He helped found some kind of badger enthusiast group back in the town he used to live in.
