It was ok...

This was not one of those books that you just couldn’t put down. It was ok, dragged a bit and then seemed to wrap up suddenly in the last few pages with loose ends hanging....

Well written

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are accurate in some small towns I know. Unfortunately people like this do exist.
