But by page ten, I got so tired of the weakling protagonist. First, she discovers a body while on a walk with a co-worker at her new job (I don't THINK these are spoilers, and other reviewers have said this much, but if you are sensitive to spoilers, it's up to you whether you read on), and thereafter for the rest of the book she constantly SHIVERS and WHINES and has AWFUL FLASHBACKS to how GROSS IT SMELLED and how awful it looked and so forth. Well, in real life perhaps that would be the reaction
most of us would have, but in mysteries, it's sort of an unspoken rule that this is mentioned maybe once and then we "man up" (as my doctor always says when he's about to administer an injection).
I'm serious--every few pages she whines on. She brings it up over and over. Throughout the book, she's suddenly flashing back to the TASTE OF DEATH and the HORROR, THE HORROR. A mystery is a kind of morality play in which the idea is to bring the perp to justice so that Right Triumphs, and we have a sort of agreement that characters don't go on and on about having PTSD from finding the body. No, really.
Anyway, on about page three this co-worker guy starts bullying her about (HERE'S THAT POSSIBLE SPOILER) how she can't possibly report that they've found a body, and how it'll be "making trouble for him." (I never understood what he was talking about, ever.) She actually allows him to take her cell phone and browbeat her about it. What kind of modern woman is that?Read more ›
-A little Romance
Audra is a college graduate. She went back home to take a job at the Mountain Inn and Resort. What would you do if you found a died body in the woods? Run? Scream? Would go call the police? Would you do nothing?
I feel bad for Audra because of the harassment from her boss and his son. I think the son is hiding something. I am not going to say what I think he is up to.
Audra's mother has a point of view on men that is something else. I feel bad for her brother. Audra is a good big sister, who wants to protect her brother from the verbal abuse from their mother.
This book had me so curious. You will see I say that a lot about a book with so much mystery in it. Who killed the person? I don't want to give away too many details. It is better to read them yourself. This book definitely had me wondering a lot of questions:
-Where? (this has to be explained in details, but I won't get into it)
-Why? (I think this is the big question to know)
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!
