Caitlyn is in journalism grad school and working as an intern at a small town newspaper. She finds it intriguing that a reported break-in at a local business was reported then police were told to ignore it though 2 employees leave quit within a day of the occurrence. To win a bet with her boss she starts to innocently investigate, then not so innocently.
There are all kinds of suspects , deftly introduced, small clues innocuously introduced. Right until the climax I was unsure of who and why!
Great writing, believable characters, good, smooth dialogue - what more could you want?!?!
This book kept me guessing till the end. A few times I was sure I had solved the mystery, only to discover I was way off base. It was so fun to follow Caitlyn through her investigation. She is definitely a gutsy heroine and gets herself into several sticky (and often times hilarious) situations. One of the most entertaining things about this book is watching Caitlyn try her best to manage the different identities she finds herself creating and seeing how she talks her way out of several close calls of her true self being discovered.
Overall, a great mystery that'll keep you guessing!
My mom usually asks me for recommendations of books to read that is a good read without "the crazy romance scenes" that I like to read. So this book was perfect for her! I gave it to her and two days later, she finished it! She loved the flow of it and couldn't put it down.
A good book to read for all generations!
Caitlyn arranges her own break-ins and begins to realize that the break-in was really just a canary in a mine, signaling something far more criminal....
The characters are solid and, from Caitlyn's boss Ian, through her strange neighbor Lucy they are plastic and even credible. But the plot, while it did manage to get deeper and uglier, it didn't quite hit goose-bump proportions and resolutions came before the reader could get properly spooked.
This is going to be a series that I look forward to the release of each book!
The book read very fast and easy. I did not want to put it down. Caitlyn is very likable, smart and fun! Her dog cracks me up! Her best friend is fun-I keep superimposing Sheldon's girlfriend Amy from Big Bang Theory onto her...LOL I am looking forward to seeing Ian's character develop also.
The town really comes to life! The author makes you want to pack up and move in tomorrow!
Great author, I will be exploring her other books right away!
Somehow I must have overlooked the humor and quirkiness that other reviewers saw in this story. I also read in a review that it was fast paced. Sorry, but I didn't find it to be that either. By the 20% mark I hadn't laughed, chuckled, or even smiled. I also hadn't connected with the main character or any of the secondary ones.
