I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I loved the characters and the writing was superb. Although I picked this up thinking it was a mystery/suspense novel, it was absolutely a romance with suspense on the side. Still, I really enjoyed the book. Although I rarely watch it, the leading character Elizabeth reminds me a lot of the female lead in the TV show "Bones"--highly intelligent, yet awkward in social situations. Not my favorite character but I loved the male lead character, Brooks, so much that I just might have to re-read this one--and I am NOT a re-reader.
I loved the writing. The characters were really well defined and there was humor sprinkled throughout the story. I really liked how the author used the characters' own speech, like the various southern idioms coming from the locals in Bickford, to develop the characters throughout the story.
The narrator did a great job with the voices, by the way. A bad narrator can ruin a perfectly good audiobook, and this one did a great job with all the southern accents--even if they aren't Ozark mountains accents. :)
I couldn't pick a favorite scene, however, I did enjoy Abigail's first few encounters with Brooks.
No. This wasn't a tear-jerker, thank goodness.
Read it--you won't regret it!
Wow! I loved this one. So many twists and turns and the author wisely chose to never reveal too much too soon. I really loved the strong and unique characters too. The narrator was wonderful too!
Great concept! Can't wait for the sequel. Adults, boys and girls alike will enjoy this book.
