I liked this at first, but in the last third it started to drag. It was a bit dated, with many of the female characters wearing slacks, pearls, and pastels. The setting was good, and I thought the characters were well-drawn. 2.5 stars.

I am not typically a mystery book reader but I really enjoyed this book. It was scary in parts and while I had a small clue who the murderer was, there were others I suspected more. So when the end came, I was still surprised. Ms. Thompson has a true gift to keep the reader entranced and I could visualize everyone and every place Our main character, Natalie, goes to her small hometown where the twin sister of her best friend is killed. As the story continues and more people are murdered, Natalie ...more

I take my mysteries and my suspense novels with a grain of salt. I have to suspend belief because a lot of is much like TV and just not realistic. My biggest gripe was that any NORMAL female who gets a phone call from somebody claiming to be her friend that was just murdered the other day and who quotes the note left on the body would be calling the cops. But she just shrugs it off as nothing and moves on with her day.

Overall, it wasn't a bad book, but not anything real memorable.

A decent suspense story with plenty of red herrings to leave you wondering who the killer is, though I would have liked a bit more romance between the two main characters, Natalie & Nick.

I quite liked the character of Nick's daughter Paige who, with her friend Jimmy attempt to solve the killings. All in all an enjoyable read & will look out for more by this writer.

I felt the beginning was a bit weak, but the story gained momentum as I continued reading. Enjoyed reading this.

I liked it , more than I thought I would honestly and I'll probably read more books by this author ( especially since she's from WV! ) . It was missing that something that makes me super excited about a book though , so three stars is all it gets .

One of my top favorites, and a very nice happy accident. This book caught by eye by cover alone like many, but actually had good turns, twists, and touches that made it memorable to me. It's one of the books I am absolutely seeking to replace after losing and will be rereading once I have it in my collection again.

A good suspense but a really awful translation ! I still wonder how the publisher accepted to publish this... I'll try and find the English version of this novel.

This one wasn't bad, it kept me drawn in from the beginning all the way to the end. I will be reading more from her for sure. There were a lot of people that could have been the murderer and I think that she set it up perfectly in the end. I think my favorite characters were the kids in the book, that were trying to solve the mystery.

Overview: Natalie St. John has rushed home after a fight with her boyfriend. She is looking forward to just spending time with her friends. And then the murders begin starting. First up is Tamara Hunt, one of Natalie’s oldest friends. How many will die before the killer gets caught? There’s one thing that Natalie can be positive about, maybe two. These phone calls don’t bode well for her. And there’s nothing that’ll keep her in Port Ariel. Not her dad, not Lilly, and definitely not that cute ...more

I was really, really enjoying this book . . . right up until the ending. The ending isn't awful, merely annoying; the main character absolutely will not stop leaving the police out of a police investigation. And, honestly, it's hard to take the romance between her and the lead detective seriously when she keeps doing such foolish, disrespectful things.

I had not read anything by this author and decided to give her a try, and i probably won't again. Perhaps it was just this book, but every adult character except the two main were obnoxious, whiny and without true depth. The over abundance of suspects became tiresome, especially when the clues for the true murderer came out halfway through. The worse part, however, was the stilted and strange dialogue between characters. These conversations were supposed to give us background, but it became a ...more

Eh, A so-so book. Not really worth reading. Took me forever to get through it because the dialogue was too unrealistic. Thought it could have had potential and it initially sparked my interest with the promise of a good mystery, but the characters were not quite developed and the story line looked like it was going one way, and then just completely shut off.

Book #5 read in 2006

I was very pleased with this book. I picked this up at a library sale never having heard of Carlene Thompson before. I am glad I did. The story was well-written and it kept me guessing for most of the book! I also picked up another of Thompson's books the same day, and I can't wait to read it as well.

Very Very Good Suspense!

This book kept me going. It did not disappoint. Great storyline and characters. You will be shocked at the end. Trust me!
I recommend this book highly. Natalie goes home for vacation and gets more than she ever thought. I will read more of Carlene's books.

As always, Carlene Thompson has done it again - each of her mysteries gets sicker and sicker and I mean that as a compliment!!! I never saw the conclusion of this mystery coming the way that it did! Highly recommended writer!
Happy reading!!!

I read this book in high school (it was given to me by my English teacher). I remember that I really liked it, that was probably due to the fact that the author is from WV. But it was also a good story. I need to read it again to see if I still like it....

I really enjoyed this book. I've read it twice and was surprised by the killer both times. Very very good. It held my attention and I was reading into the early hours of the morning. There are some disturbing themes in a few parts but over all it was an awesome read.

Thrilling and suspenseful read, kept me guessing until the very end! Ms. Thompson is a master at her craft, highly recommend her books, they never disappoint!

Love this native West Virginia writer! Though all of her books follow the same sort of plot, they never fail to attract my interest and scare me just the tiniest bit! Great book.

I thought this book was really good.. i couldn't put it down, and finished it in two days... Scary how you think you know some people, and they turn out to be the complete opposite.
