I've read books from this author before and always enjoyed the mystery and suspense. This story, however, had many flaws that should have never made it past the editor's desk. The story references back to an incident that occurred about a year ago, involving Rose, the female lead and her large extended family and many of the members of the close knit, New England town where she lives. This was supremely irritating, and actually caused me to stop and consider seeking out what must be a first book in a series, to clear up the cobwebs. I did not ultimately do this, because due to the enormous cast of characters in the book, I never really cared enough about the female and male leads to find out more. The ending was a complete fizzle and I am still left wondering who the villain really was. There are so many characters, throughout the whole book all except the leads are often referred to by their first and last names! Sigh... I'm glad it's over and I'll never venture to Carla Neggers's world again.
