The Little Mornings - Book Review
The Little Mornings, by C M Albrecht is a murder mystery
with 262 absolutely absorbing pages. We have three main
characters here - the grandfather, an alcoholic of
questionable character, a slightly off balance woman
(Angie) and an impressionable young man (Darcy) who
becomes mixed up in a whirlwind of events. Murder, thievery
and lies keep the unsteady relationship between Darcy and
Angie on edge. Keeping a secret is no easy task, especially
when someone else pops into the scene with inside
knowledge to the truth. Darcy, unable to control the events,
becomes another person entirely from the one we knew in
the first few pages of the book.
Perhaps because I am a writer, and this book has to do with
the publishing industry, I am partial to the theme.
Grandfather's description of a writer's methods to reach
their creative dreams had me laughing out loud - because it
was so true. As were the frustrated, aspiring writers and the
over worked publishers. I felt the book was very realistic in
I loved the first few paragraphs - they really pulled me in. I
kept hearing Humphry Bogart's voice in my head narrating
the story as I read along. I sat on the edge of an
uncomfortable plastic chair 2 days ago and opened the first
page to begin reviewing The Little Mornings. I meant to take
only a ten-minute break from my day to enjoy the sunshine.
The next thing I knew, my leg and butt-cheek were both
completely numb and lifeless? and I was on page 50! So
be warned, readers, this book may very well take you out of
commission for a few days. I could not wait to get back to it
every minute I had to spare!
