This was a pretty basic but interesting mystery. Mostly predictable. Narrator has an interesting voice and tends to pause instead of stop at the end of a sentence BUT if you hang in there you'll get through it. Not much in the way of character development and one character drops completely off the map in an odd way because you'd think the daughter would be around for a lot of this but isn't. Favorite part of the book is one of the characters describing her breakfast of southern biscuits and sausage gravy.
A “critical review” says this novel is intensely riveting. Good laugh. I would revise that assessment to say “weirdly interesting.”
The review also says McFadden’s narration is adept and enjoyable, which is quite true. She handles narration subtleties very well.
