First time I've found the reader to detract. Too much artifice/contrived in words chosen.
Humor, learned a lot about Spain, history of Spain and world incorporated in to story,
Too long - not enough pace in story. Too much digression and redundant.
Vivid picture of a memorable sumerbin this small Minnesota town.cliche to say but touches on : life, death, love, loss, sex, fidelity, the generous and the cruel , haves/have-nots, prejudice. and more. ll has some villains, heroes, and scandal to keep it from being preachy or a 'coming of age novel '! The bonus is the expert writing and wide array of flawed complex characters . You know someone like each whether you live in a large city or rural community . Sad it is over . Download it now ! Try to figure 'who done it'! Bet ya' can't!
If it hadn't been for her laurels... And other reviews would never have bought . I toiled and stayed the course out of a crazed Audible mania and kept thinking I was missing something (clearly I missed what others have discerned), or was waiting for the turning point.

If you want something entertaining and like this genre can't do better than this -it is not literature but still very enjoyable and not too cliche. Highly enjoyable.
