really liked it
Read from July 10 to 14, 2012

I loved this novel from Julia Keller. It was very clear from her descriptions that she had an excellent grasp of small town living. Living in a town of 400, I loved when authors paint a picture of small town life and she was definitely detailed in her descriptions of Ackers Gap. Second, the book unraveled like a slowly and methodically, leaving me as the reader begging for more, with a knock down twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Normally I can determine "the bad guy" at the end of the book...not with this one nor why!

So, why 4 stars? I honestly felt that, particularly as a journalist/professional writer, the author could have written the story a bit tighter than it was. It seemed like there were alot of moments of somewhat "babbling" that didn't add to the storyline.
