Although this is only the second book in this series, it is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I am a huge fan of Amanda Flower. I am never disappointed with one of her books. She has an amazing ability to craft a story filled with terrific plots, wonderful characters and strong mysteries. This series is no exception. In each book so far, as soon as I have opened the cover I have been transported to a charming small town in upstate New York filled with characters that are so full of dimensions and life that they feel real to me. This is a town I would want to live in with these characters as my neighbors. Once again, Ms. Flowers has crafted a well plotted mystery that is full of twists, turns and surprises. I did not guess the identity of the killer until the reveal and I actually felt sympathetic toward that character.
If you want a well written story full of great characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing I strongly suggest you pick up a book by this author. You will be transported to another place and spend several hours being highly entertained. I can't not wait for the next book in this series. I will be another automatic pre-order.
