Nothing ever happens in Hidden Springs, Kentucky–and that’s just fine with Michael. Nothing, that is, until a dead body is discovered on the courthouse steps. As Michael works to solve the case, it seems that every nosy resident in town has a theory. When the sheriff insists Michael check out one of these harebrained theories, his surprising discovery sends him on a bewildering search for a mysterious killer that has him questioning everything he has ever believed about life in Hidden Springs.
When I signed up for this review I thought that this book would be right up my alley but I really struggled reading it. It simply didn't grab my interest...until the next to last chapter and then I just wanted to know if the person I thought was the guilty party was indeed the guilty party (and I was correct).
It wasn't a bad book in and of itself. It wasn't. It had good characters rich in history and possibilities for the future. It has real life subplots, and a real small town feel... but some of the characters seemed SO predictable.. like the bumbling deputy, the gossipy old lady, the virtuous older woman and so forth. And YES every small town has those people (I know mine does) but ... what can I say... this book just didn't suit me. That's what it comes right down to.
BUT here's the kicker.....what suits one person might not suit another and vice versa. The book was good enough that I would happily let other people borrow it and indeed I have someone waiting to do so. So if you are able to check it out, do so. :)
