Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I grew up in small town Iowa and after moving to a much larger city, returned to our family cabin in the woods in order to finish a Master's Degree and do a little writing.  What I found was that people are different in rural America.  I knew it before, but didn't realize to what extent that was true.  They have everything going for them, plus they know what it is to live in a community where you can leave your doors unlocked during the day, let your children walk to school by themselves, have people show up to help simply because they are your neighbors and they pay attention to each other.

The Bellingwood series pours out of me with stories from my childhood and youth filling the pages as the characters come alive in my mind.  These characters are amalgamations of people I've known my entire life ... good people with great stories.

There are a lot of great people in this world and it doesn't take that much to find them if you just open your eyes and your heart.  Bellingwood reminds us of that fact.

Diane Greenwood Muir knows a lot about a lot of things, but the one thing she knows best is great people. Growing up in small towns in the Midwest, she and her family experienced the best and worst of those people and her memories come from the best of them. Her books are filled with bits and pieces of stories and people from all of those memories. If you think they are too good to be true, you haven't met the real people who fill the rural communities throughout the Midwest.

Diane's family operated a small printing shop in Omaha for over twenty years and when it closed she began to hide out in a family cabin in Iowa in order to get her Master's Degree and focus on writing. While there, she encountered people who were honest and caring again, reminding her of a life she'd forgotten in the city. Neighbors who watch out for each other, business people who believe in honesty before money and people who truly put others before themselves.

The newest member of her family is a cat named TB (The Beast) who showed up as a kitten at her back door. He runs the household and keeps her company while she writes and travels.

Great read, you are pulled into the characters at once and feel a part of the town and the group of friends instantly. The story has laughs, unexpected turns and a true "good feeling in your soul" ending. Highly recommend!

Entertaining cozy mystery but a bit too "cozy" for me personally. I liked the plot with an old school being renovated and bones from a murder 40 years previously being discovered. The secondary plotline with the main character being stalked by a former boyfriend didn't seem to work as well for me.

Interesting characters that were quite well developed but I did have trouble with the group of local female friends that immediately attached themselves to the main character on her arrival in the small town. I had the uncomfortable feeling I was reading about a bunch of high school girls and their 'clique' rather than a group of adult women in their 30s and 40s.

I think, for me, the best part of the entire book was the running joke with the main character becoming almost instantly notable with the whole small town gossip mill for her purple panties with pink bows and the embarrassment of the young carpenter who accidentally displayed them from the laundry basket.

I liked the book to a small degree. I liked the story line about restoring the school, but the human bones & the kidnapping stories left me cold. The resolutions to both were just to pat - no suspense, no end results. Plus I found the author to be very wordy. She wrote descriptions & dialogues that had nothing to do with the story. I felt like I was reading a high school student's essay that she was trying to pad to meet the page requirements. Some of the characters were interesting and not developed - Henry for example. The group of woman who descended upon her in a group would have made me move back to Boston!! A smothering group to say the least. Not my cup of tea & I won't read the next in the series.

I took a chance on this book because it was free and because the description intrigued me. I wanted to know what was found, why, and all the details.

I have met and known some of the types of characters in this book. The author is correct. These types of people DO exist. However, I have moved to many small towns all over the country throughout my life, sometimes by myself and I have NEVER had the world change for me. It would be wonderful if people actually acted like they do in this book but they just don't. People don't put their entire lives on hold for several weeks while they lavish the new person with dinners, parties, etc.

The basic plot was a good one but interjecting the character of Joey, an unrelated character that really had nothing to do with the original plot was a bit unsettling. And then to receive the same reaction from the town after the Joey issue was resolved just didn't ring true. I can believe a couple of people -- maybe a new girlfriend and a guy with a twinge of interest in dating you -- would feel normal but not a whole town.

I gave the book 2 stars because of the original plot but beyond that, I can't give it more. I will pass on more books by this author.

It's a nice story, I enjoyed reading it. I can't say it is the best book I ever read, but I think it is worth reading.

This book did not grab my interest. Story line is slow and unbelievable. Characters are hard to get to know... I couldn't make it to the end of this book.

I am really glad I bought this book for free! It is my policy to ALWAYS finish every book I start. Of the hundreds and hundreds of book I have read I can honestly say this is the worst. The ending shocked me because there wasn't one. My first thought when I finished was, "That's it?" and my second one was, "What was the point of this book?" I would not recommend this book to anyone for any reason.

I tried to like the book but it was written in a juvenile fashion. I should have found it interesting as I lived in the area the story took place in for several years and grew up in Iowa but it was not a captivating story. I gave up about 20% into the book and deleted it from my Kindle.
