In a small Midwest town, twenty-eight-year-old Krista Larson has made her mark as the youngest female police chief in the country. She’s learned from the best: her father, Keith, a decorated former detective. But as accustomed as they are to the relative quiet of their idyllic tourist town, things quickly turn with Krista’s ten-year high school reunion. With the out-of-towners holed up in a lakefront lodge, it doesn’t take long to stir up old grudges and resentments. Now a successful TV host, Astrid Lund, voted the “Girl Most Likely to Succeed” is back in town

The basic story was good; the performance was just great, but I spent the second half of the book wondering: What was the author wearing while writing?

The story was interesting enough to make me listen until the end, but it is chick lit for sure. The author gives a wink and a nod to feminism, but in the end women must all be beautiful and men must all be strong enough to save them.

Dr. Bill Brockton is in the middle of a nuclear-terrorism disaster drill when he receives an urgent call from the nearby town of Oak Ridge - better known as Atomic City, home of the Bomb, and the key site for the Manhattan Project during World War II. Although more than sixty years have passed, could repercussions from that dangerous time still be felt today?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I'm not sure it could have been a 4 or 5 star experience. The story just didn't catch my attention.

What could Jefferson Bass have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I would have enjoyed more character development and less gore.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I'm sure it does. It just wasn't to my taste.

There are many valid points and a good summary of recent history, but there is considerable generalization.
