Why I picked it up: I was asked to review the book as part of a book blog tour and I gladly accepted.
Why I finished it: This book is a delightful blend of high mystery and southern gothic, combining Holmesian deductive prowess with the supernatural beliefs of tarot, voodoo, and psychic readings. Woods sets the tone for the book by providing the reader with a picture of a close knit family that fights for each other and looks out for each other. There are two older siblings that are also in the mix, but they don't play much of a role in the story. Katrin, much like Dr. Watson, hopes to one day become a doctor, and her chronicle is littered with her Latin practice, an element that helps to develop her character. Though the book is just as much about J. Dyanne as Katrin, J.Dyanne still remains a somewhat mysterious personage. She is possessed with a powerful gift of observation and the ability to see into the beyond, which becomes a valuable tool to aid in the recovery of lost animals, lost persons, and lost objects. J. Dyanne is seen as a witch and a seer, but neither of those assertions by her peers and neighbors seem to fit with what truly goes on behind the scenes. I loved that there was a historical element to the story as well: the 1960s was a period of racial and political unrest in this country, and in some cases exacerbated by the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to which Katrin makes reference. These outside events also have an impact on the characters, causing them to think outside themselves and ponder how they fit into the bigger picture. This book is a must for fans of Sherlock Holmes or even just a good mystery that keeps you guessing until the last pages.
Their names were very unique, and I liked that she called her two older siblings “the elder others.” I enjoyed Katrin’s vocabulary because I like learning new words, and it made the book more interesting to me. It was also pretty cool that J. Dyanne was a psychic.
I’m really excited for the next book of this great series.
