The Diviner's Tale is an interesting take on the mystery genre. The very act of divining, or dowsing for water, has paranormal overtones, and so does this book. It took me a while to read, because at times there isn't much action, and pages can be taken up by only one or two paragraphs. But the story is intriguing and twisty, and I wanted to know what happened, so I stuck with it.

Cassandra Brooks is the latest in a long line of diviners, but she starts seeing things that aren't there, unlike the water that is. Her family, friends, town, and long-lost acquaintances become involved in the situation, and it all ties up very neatly at the end.

The action is a little end-heavy, which made it easier to finish, and some revelations are left until the climax, but they further the story, so it works. If the author has other books similar to this one I would consider taking a look at them.

I received this book as an e-ARC from Netgalley.
