"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The town has its diversity of residents who are still divided into groups based on their ancestry - the Irish (who own the pub), the Italians, etc. In a town with only 500 residents, I doubt the ancestral heritage dividing them would be so strong. The inhabitants of such a small town would be mostly a homogenous group sharing similar values and history.
I gave the effort a generous 3 star rating mostly for effort and in appreciation for editing. I wasn't distracted by grammar, punctuation or formatting as can often be the case with Amazon Kindle self published works. Rose Hill's setting and background development needs to be tweaked for authenticity. Define what season it is and stick with it for the story, don't just suddenly have nasty winter driving conditions appear and disappear based on the necessity of a reason for a car crash. BTW, I live in the mountains with year round visitors coming in for boating, skiing and hiking. When it snows, that is a big event that changes pretty much every aspect of our daily lives.
The plot is interesting, but some what predicable. The main characters, Maggie and Scott are well developed and believable.
There were too many sub plots, none of which were concluded in this book. I realize that it has become fashionable to make your first book a hook for the sequels, but a book should stand on its own. If only the plot that is concluded was placed in this book, this would be a short story.
Just to mention a few unresolved plots; Ava's husband deserted her seven years ago, for an unknown reason; he is out of the country, but Ava is getting hang-up calls that sound like international calls. This mystery is left unfinished. Maggie seems to be in love with Scott, but Drew is also a suitor and this is left hanging. The FBI starts a big investigation into some unspecified crime, but this is never solved or even explained what the crime is or how it fits into this story. The banker's wife is injured in a car wreck, maybe foul play, or not, and no reason is provided why this is even in the book, as it has no relation to the plot or main characters.
It has been said that if a gun over the mantle is described in chapter one, it had better shoot something before the end of the book. This doesn't happen in this book.
I like the characters in the book and the interaction between them, the story moves at a good pace.
So, this a good read but not a great book.
