The opening few chapters suffered from overwritten prose but the author’s style settled and softened into good captivating storytelling. The mystery was solid and filled with twists, turns and a town full of suspects. We followed the mystery but we also followed the lives of these characters in their little town far removed from suburb and city. The characters are an eccentric and interesting lot with secrets and histories I hope Buzzelli uncovers as the series grows. I am looking forward to revisiting them all as soon as the second book is released.
