I am a friend of Cynthia Kolko and had the pleasure to read this book prior to print. I was prepared to enjoy it as I knew that Cynthia has great wit and is a talented writer. This book exceeded my expectations. The use of language is playful yet very accurately descriptive. The characters are nicely developed and the reader is able to gain a true sense of understanding of their motivations and struggles- I read this book very quickly because I genuinely wanted to know what happened to them!Was this review helpful?

Having grown up in a small town that experienced a seasonal influx of visitors, I also felt that this novel captured that element of the Finger Lakes beautifully. As a resident of the region, I truly enjoyed how local references were woven throughout the story also contributing to the novel's strong sense of place.
I enjoyed this book thoroughly!
