Koty is an unhappy housewife, married young to a man she thought she loved, but who turned into an abusive alcoholic. Jamie is a wounded Iraqi war vet, a quadruple amputee. Koty's husband Wayne, in a fit of misplaced patriotism, forces Koty to spend her afternoons "babysitting" Jamie, something neither of them want. But then Jamie and Koty fall for each other, which inevitably sets in motion majors changes for both of them, far beyond what anyone expected.

It's important to note that this is NOT a romance. It's a long meditation on Koty's and Wayne's marriage, and on their three young daughters. The central question is, how did Koty end up in this situation? I was a bit disappointed that Jamie wasn't more of a central character, but the descriptions of his disability are realistic and well done.

I got completely sucked into reading this book, and couldn't put it down. The characters are all so realistic and believable, and the quality of the writing is outstanding. It's a heartbreaking story from beginning to end, but utterly compelling. I have to disagree with the people who didn't like the ending. I thought it was perfect and complete, very satisfying.

Quite an emotional experience, reading this book. It was not what I had expected going in. I read the short story on which it is based and was looking forward to an interesting romance.

The book it became is much more complex. It takes a sharp left turn half way through that I did not see coming. It did allow the story to explore something so much bigger: the way memory works, the way people try to put together lives based on just pieces.

The language was beautiful and the characters were achingly believable. The author's ability to show the point of view of so many different people at different times in their lives is very impressive.

A couple of uses of language that really stood out to me: "...with a voice that reminds me of the rumble strip on a highway" and "I sensed she'd been distant, drifting away from us the same way you can be standing still in the ocean, thinking you're not moving, and then you look up and realize you've drifted far from where you thought you were."

I'm a little bit heartbroken right now, a lot shook. This book is a powerful experience.

I read Robyn Bradley's short story upon which this title is based. Began reading one evening after kids in bed and COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. Ended up staying up half the night to finish it. Bradley has an engaging, easy writing style and the plot took so many unexpected turns that I was hanging on for dear life. The characters were well-developed. This is the first book since Girl with the Dragon Tattoo that I find myself thinking about over and over again, even a few weeks after I finished it.

Highly enjoyable read and a total bargain at $3.99.

This is one of those books that I don't encounter often enough - pulls you in from the very beginning and makes you put everything else aside so you can keep reading! Loved the story, the writing is wonderful, characters are well developed and you really feel their emotions. And I love the way the storytelling changes in the middle of the book from the main character to the point of view of the other characters. Twists and turns, keeps you guessing, didn't want it to end! Can't wait for the next book from this author!

After reading the short story, I was wondering, wondering. Now I wonder no more. The characters are deep and the story is pretty rich. It's easy to get to know the charcters and seeing them from both sides-good, bad, some of both, in different ways. Like real human beings. Even the worst and most dislikable has some good traits, which makes the story seem all the more vivid. Go on and get it, you'll enjoy the story and I hope you'll find (as I did) you are wondering at the end how life continues for the characters.

A good book for me needs to have one of two things - great characters or a great plot. When you get both, it's a slam dunk and that is what you get with What Happened at Granite Creek. The story stayed with me and I could not wait to get back to it whenever I was pulled away for real life. The writing is top notch and I can't wait to share it as a book club read next time it's my turn to pick!

You won't know - or even guess - what happened in Granite Creek until the very end. Robyn Bradley created a page-turner full of surprising twists with her first novel, "Forgotten April," and she does it again with "What Happened in Granite Creek." Her POV writing style adds a lot to the experience. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

I just finished "What Happened in Granite Creek" and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm normally an action adventure/scifi reader, but took a chance on this and didn't look back. Kept my interest, lots of twists, and reminds me why I don't live in a small town :-)
