Amy David | 1 comments I think the title had "dog" and "smile" or "laugh" in the title, but extensive searches have turned up nothing. I read it in 2011 or 2012, and I want to say it was reasonable new (within the last ten years) at that time. I'm almost positive it was a male author. There was a laughing mask or something on the cover of the paperback edition.

The plot was about someone moving to a new town and something was strange about the town, and they treated the MC like an outsider. MC spent time trying to figure out if they just didn't like her because (s)he was new, or if there was some deep dark secret. I think I remember a train playing prominently in the plot, as well as some photographs. The house burned down mysteriously at the end. I don't think the big secret was ever revealed.
