Interesting characters & mystery. Ending surprised (and saddened) me. Will read author again. TTS-enabled.

This was a very good mystery , what caught my attention was the story is located in the upper penn. of Michigan, although I could not pin point the town of St.Adele on the Michigan map , I understood what the writer was saying because i have been to several locations in the U.P. and the senic views are just as Kathleen Hills describes her her story. I'm ready and waitting for her next story with these same chacters

I found this author because the book was free at the time on Amazon. I was delighted to discover that this is a really good writer. She is from Minnesota, too. I wonder that I had not heard of her before. I checked the library and learned that they have all four of her books. I am definitely going to read more in this series.

I grabbed this while it was free on kindle. I would have given it 3 1/2 stars if I could. I was quite intrigued by the mystery and the setting was an interesting change from the British and Scandinavian mysteries that I usually read (and love!). I will probably try some more of this author's books.

Slow start, but the last half moved right along. Ms. Hills' writing is very descriptive--it felt as if I were actually in Michigan's upper peninsula.
