'Drift' is a suspense novel set in rural eastern Pennsylvania and deals with the pressures of organic farming, the dangers to food worldwide, and highly connected drug dealers driving around the small town. When Doyle Carrick finds himself in his recently deceased parents' house and falling fast for the charming neighbor woman - he has no idea what he has stepped in the middle of; and that just might cost him and the ones he cares about more than he anticipated.
This was a slick thriller with twists and turns that the reader won't see coming and will have them eagerly trying to figure out what's really happening in this small town in Pennsylvania. The characters were all well written, although I found the romance between Doyle and Nola to be predictable. I liked watching Doyle come to the country as a Philly cop and then see his character change and grow into a much more complex man. The plot was really fascinating with all the topics about organic food, harmful pesticides and government tampering with food. I found it all the more creepy because these things are hot topics in our society today and this type of situation could actually happen (or be happening). The writing was well done with a quick pace and short chapters that held the reader's attention. Although I myself didn't find the topic of the book, mainly the organic versus government food agenda, to be quite up my alley, the mystery and suspense of the book was really well written. I'd definitely recommend this book for fans of the concepts discussed in the book as well as for fans of suspense and mysteries.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
