Trouble Comes in Threes Questions for Consideration

Dear Reader,

If you have come to this page because you have read Trouble Comes in Threes, I owe you my heartfelt thanks. I hope you enjoyed the book.

As an avid reader I have a soft spot for book groups. Having been a part of or created them myself, I offer below some questions that I hope will aid in your discussion of the book.

For anyone with a book club who would like to read the book I’d like to offer you and your fellow book club readers a discount to order the book. 

For those interested in having your book club read the book, or having me call or video (zoom) into your group to discuss these, or any other questions you might have, please reach out HERE.

In Gratitude,

Questions for Consideration

  1. Is the relationship between Jillian Scotte and Amelia Hamza equal in terms of who benefits? If not, who benefits most and why?
  2. Why do you think Maryanne Sanderson is so supportive of Jillian and Kara? Do you think she should be threatened by them?
  3. In Book 2, Jillian cleverly finds a way not to have to ‘choose’ between Daniella and Kara. If she HAD to make a choice, who would she have chosen? Would she have used the gun? Was there another option she could have taken?
  4. What do you think it’s like for DS Listun to be in a ‘flipped’ environment as a man working in the minority with mostly powerful women in authority?
  5. Who is the stronger personality of the two between Daniella and Jillian? What makes them so?
  6. What motivates Sebastian Hughes to ‘do good’ as someone who lives on the other side of the law?
  7. If you were creating the story, what would you create for the history between Jillian Scotte and DS Rob Milston?
  8. At the opening of Book 2 Jillian is offered a position to move to the south of England from Cumbria. She wants Kara with her. Is this solely because of what happened at the end of Book 1 or is there more to it?
  9. At the conclusion of Book 3 Jillian makes the conscious choice not to divulge what she saw Hughes do. Why?
  10. These novels prioritize the roles of females over males in what is still today a predominantly male centric environment (policing). Is it believable that these characters could exist today or is it wishful thinking?
