message 1: by Laura (new) - added it

Laura Is this a mystery, too?

Jo (Bloomin'Chick) Yes and no, not in the traditional sense or I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much lol!

message 3: by Laura (new) - added it

Laura hm...ok, I've added it. lol. But I do love a good mystery. Would you call it suspense?

Jo (Bloomin'Chick) I kept wanting to see what would happen next and how it would end, so I guess you could say it was suspenseful for me but again, I'm not sure you could call it a suspense novel in the traditional sense. It's a great Southern fiction novel in which a gal from the North finds herself in the South to write her first novel and becomes obsessed with an aspect of her friends family history they'd rather she not bring up or look into.

Laura I'm calling it suspense, may cause me to read it sooner lol. Does sound interesting.

Jo (Bloomin'Chick) To each her own :o)

Laura I don't abide "tradition". Suspense serves my purpose, and I'll always be able to see your review when i decide to read it. :)
