Sarah is a detective and has the resources he needs to solve the case. Unfortunately Sarah is determined to make him do the dirty work, which wouldn't bother him much if anyone in the town actually cared about Theo's murder, but the people in town are ecstatic Theo's dead. And have some of their own dirty secrets to keep. To make matters worse Sarah's more interested in getting Scott between the sheets than solving the murder.
Scott, on the other hand, only has eyes for Maggie. He just can't get Maggie to give him the time of day.
Scott hates gossip. But he does get closer to his goal with Maggie as he opens himself up to the gossip around town, and it's a small town, in order to solve the crime.
Along with the "anybody could be the killer" aspect this book is a fun read. Rose Hill had me laughing out loud, and I can so relate to the small town gossip mill.
The same was true for many of the characters. They were so indistinctly drawn that except for Scott, Maddie, and a few others, each time I encountered one, I had to stop and think who that person was and his or her relationship to other characters. They never became ‘real’ people, just names on a page.
The characters also mostly came out of Central Casting. We had the town bully, the wounded war vet, the snobby woman who looks down on the town and citizens, the rich old lady who insults every one she talks to. None of the mothers approved of the person their son or daughter married. Almost all the men and women had the morals of alley cats. Many of them were at least borderline alcoholics.
The writing was very basic as if aimed toward a middle grade audience. Although some sentences were so convoluted, I had to read them several times to understand their meaning.
Too many characters and allot of them with the same names, or names close to the same. It tells the families
back ground some all the way back to the 1800's, cousins and ect.. you get the idea, it is allot to keep up with.
It goes back and tells about what happened 7 years ago, (many times) different situations in different families.
It talks about dog breeding scams. and tells details of what each thing looks like inside a business or someones house.
Scott (the sheriff) at one point is looking at photo albums and describing every picture, LOTS of pics that was ridiculous.
Maggie is the sheriffs love interest, and frankly she got on my last nerve with her wishy washy I want him - I don't want him
childish way of acting. and that never is solved by the end,
Then you have two characters who just went missing and we never find out why. set up for other books I guess
Most of the mystery IS solved by the end. The main mystery is the town BULLY is killed. That is solved.
But I don't think I am going to cont. on with the series, this writing style just has way too much info.,
some readers love all the back story and info about those things that have nothing to do with the mystery,
but I do not happen to be one of those readers. A book with TMI to ME is too long, and has too many boring parts..
And I don't care for the heroin in this one much at all. and the sheriff could be a bit tougher,
But give it try... you might like it.. it is as I said a good mystery, and had it not been for the TMI it would of been at
least a 4 or 5 star book.
