    I wish the star rating would address average instead of good; the lower numbers representative below average. The book was ok, not great; it passed the time. I found it very awkward jumping between the victim's past, notes for a new book, chapters from her old book, the friend who was trying to solve the murder while finishing victim's book, etc. I wasn't particularly very sympathic to either the victim or protagonist. The end was a let down, no exploration of character feelings, just whacked off at the end. It's done.

    Couldn't get into it...

    Not a page turner....it was hard reading from one perspective and then another. At times I was bored and had to skip forward. The author didn't do a good job giving depth to the characters...i didnt finish the book. I bailed at chapter 35 when I found myself skipping forward too much. I lost interest.

    STAND BY YOUR FRIEND

    Jamie is almost seven months pregnant when her college friend, Gretchen Waters, dies suddenly and under mysterious circumstances. Gretchen had been working on a follow-up to her first book, Tammyland, when she died, but when Jamie is given her notes, it appears that Gretchen had changed her plans for the book and was investigating her mother's murder and her paternity instead. It seems that someone has had a secret for many years, and that someone does not appreciate Jamie following up on Gretchen's notes.

    This novel had my interest from the very beginning. The front cover looked interesting; the back cover blurb sounded good, and when I started reading, I was hooked. When the back cover of a murder mystery mentions Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton, you know you've found something new. Growing up in Kentucky, I had heard quite a bit about Loretta and Dolly, but I actually learned quite a bit about Tammy (nice name, BTW). Ms. Arsenault's writing style holds the interest of the reader. Chapters of the current mystery are interspersed with chapters of Tammyland, the "memoirs" of Gretchen Waters. Great idea. She grabbed my attention on page 6 with her description of an email sent by Gretchen to Jamie. Jamie read it but did not respond, and then was riddled with guilt after Gretchen's death. This is the type of thing I can imagine doing. But the description of the email itself was what first caught my attention:


    "This was Gretchen's version of a drunk dial: a garbled email full of cryptic, vaguely sentimental insights without much context. (And with a little practical bit at the end, to make it all seem casual.)"



    This is a description half of my friends could give of my emails. It was slightly embarrassing seeing it in print, but knowing that a stranger had written that line meant that I had to read the rest of the book. And when it was finished, I was sorry to see it end.
