An entertaining read!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was hooked by the summary—Kort Eriksem, a young Native American man who had been adopted by white parents returning to the small town, where he had been raised, after spending seven years in prison for murdering his girlfriend. A small town where everyone knew (or thought they knew) what everyone else was doing—old hatreds, mistrust, those who supported him or always suspected that he was innocent but hadn’t had the guts to say so, and a mother who is so riddled with guilt that she doesn’t know how to act when he comes home. My heart went out to him from the first chapter.
Grace Donahue was an outsider, unbiased and free to see him through her own eyes. Kort came to have feelings for her, but would she leave town as she intended as soon as her car was fixed?
There were so many twists and turns in the plot that it kept me glued to the pages—right until the end when I thought I knew who the killer was, even though one description earlier in the book had me puzzled. Then in the very last pages I realized that no one in the story, except the killer himself, knew the truth.
A terrific story—I am giving it 4 stars, because there were editing errors that marred the composition of the book, but not so much that I didn’t enjoy it. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller with a touch of romance.
