it was amazing
Read in April, 2012

I loved A Reliable Wife so was excited to get a copy of Goolrick's newest book. This one is about a stranger, Charlie Beale, who one day appears in a small Virginia town and works his way into the affections of the people. But when he falls for the wife of the town's richest man, we know it's only a matter of time before things go awry.

I just love Goolrick's writing . . . opening up one of his books is like sinking into a comfortable chair. I just feel myself going awwww. . . . this is writing I can just fall into . . . it's not even like he's writing, it's like falling into the story without even having to work at it. Not that Goolrick's stories are sweet or comfortable...not at all. They are dark and suspenseful . . . and just plain page turners. I highly recommend this book.
