Firefly Rain takes place in a town you never want to visit. It's the protagonist's hometown, and he's drawn back after his business fails and his parents die. The quirky locals quickly become the freaky locals, yet he remains in the town partially out of stubbornness but more from a connection to the land that is part supernatural and part his heritage. There is sufficient creepiness to keep you turning that page from the firefly phenomena to a certain bedroom that has a mind of its own. The ending didn't suit my tastes, but the writing style is great, especially how the author managed to convey Southern dialect and ways of thinking through the main character's thoughts that become stronger and stronger as the book progresses.
