Maggie, whose husband died fourteen months earlier, is a reporter for a small town newspaper. She is having trouble moving on. Her thoughts are always on the past and why her husband was killed by a hit and run driver. After a few visits with her therapist she is told she doesn’t need the visits any more, she just needs to get through the year.
When she is assigned to cover the Town Council meeting where a controversial law about a proposed outlet mall is to be debated her life gets turned around. She meets the players of both sides—Mickey Towers who wanted to build the mall in a depressed area of Somerville and a coalition of business owners called MOM (Move the Outlet Mall) who all own businesses in the rich town next door, Milford. Elizabeth Wong and Mary Jane Gordon are the main contributors of this organization.
Tom Maloney is the mayor of Somerville and wants this mall real bad. Some say so bad that he will lie, cheat and steal to get it done. Sean O’Neal is a local construction company who lives in The Flats, the nickname of Somerville, and is about to lose his home and business of this all goes through.
What happens next is pretty obvious. People hate each, others threaten each other and some end up dead. Being the reporter, Maggie gets caught in the middle. What happens? I can’t tell you. Buy the book and find out.
I really enjoyed this little caper. I felt a connection with the characters and they all felt real to me. The flow was good and my interest was kept. Great short read!
Maggie is a widow who works part time as a reporter on a small town paper. At one time she was in the big time working at the forefront of the news.
She is dealing with ongoing grief, raising 2 children and trying to get through each day.
She is a smart woman.
Which is why I was surprised at so many of her actions. She shares information online with someone she has never met. A reporter would not do that.
She regularly puts herself in jeopardy even though she is the only parent left for her 2 children. I think that a really smart woman would not do interviews with possible suspects in a murder and not let someone know where she is and what she is doing.
I like Maggie, I liked the other characters in the book. I enjoyed the book, but at times I had to overcome my common sense and just go with the flow.
I would recommend this book for the mystery. I would recommend this book for anyone who might be dealing with the loss of a loved one, there are times when grief is dealt with in a manner which is helpful.
Overall, a good book, but keep in mind that in order to move the story forward, Maggie takes risks -not in a good way.
Especially appreciated the lack of proofreading errors and typos I usually find in any deal of the day!
