The big day dawns and everything is moving along despite the usual hiccups, and her friend Scarlett is upset since Dalton (a bull-rider she’s had her eye on for a while) seems to have disappeared without a trace, leaving her feeling abandoned. But there is opportunity for worry as well since seven years earlier Dalton’s brother disappeared at the same event in the same way. Charli is incensed for her friend, and intrigued by the mystery – so she just dives in and starts looking. Soon, she’s in over her head, and everyone, including the local sheriff and her ex-boyfriend the mayor, is worried for her safety.
Twists, turns and laughs galore, Roberts infuses the story with plenty of unique characters who are all up in the local gossip, each with their own view of things and people. A solid friendship between Charli and Scarlett is clearly presented: while the two are supportive, loyal and above all, cleverly portrayed. Descriptions and presentations of scenes, people and moments are cleanly written and the mystery thread is perfectly twisty with plenty of options for suspects, tension and drama. A clever small town story that will provide a few hours respite and several laughs.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
The mystery was emotional and excellent and I really didn't expect things to turn out has they did. I like that the relationship issue seems to be leaning one direction even though I suspect that it will take some time before we see a real development, but Charli is not waiting in the wings for either prince charming, good for her. I vote Mateo! In spite of the sadness and suspicion, the book was a blast!
Our other Princess, the pink armadillo is as cute as ever. Ms. Roberts is correcting in stating that humans can contract leprosy from armadillos, and that it does exist in the United States, but the implication that it is as bad as Ebola is no longer correct. A course of antibiotics can cure leprosy long before it becomes the horror that most of us associate with it.
