Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

What a fabulous read!  Liza Klaussmann’s debut novel tells the intriguing story of two cousins in Martha’s Vineyard post World War II — their marriages, children, relationships.  There are five sections, each from a different point of view, and leaping back and forth in time.  It is a clever technique for building suspense and revealing the plot as the author wants it revealed. The characters are smooth in a Mad Men sort of way, but all with significant flaws.  I didn’t pull for any one character, but more that their truths would be revealed, only to learn that most of the time, everyone (but me) knew what was going on anyway.  Brilliant!
