Night Walks Softly is Anne’s story. When Anne arrives in Yellow River eager to begin married life, she expects a peaceful existence in the quiet town. Little does she know that the very day she arrives, Judy Wallburn, the French teacher who will become her predecessor, has been murdered for knowing too much. As Anne starts fixing up her old farmhouse, getting used to her mother-in-law, and writing lesson plans, she walks step by step into the same danger. From finding a “Help me” plea to meeting intriguing new people such as Deb, Christina, and Dorthea, Anne’s story meshes her first year of marriage with the sinister backdrop of crime and murder in a small town.

This book is rich in so many ways! Great plots and subplots. Beautiful description of the setting. Lovely word choice. Well developed characters. This is the kind of book that immerses you in its world and leaves you reluctant to close the last page. Fortunately, there are two more books in the series. I hope the author continues to write more. I feel like I simply cannot get enough of this town, this "world" that is Yellow River. Night Walks Softly will surprise you, inspire you, and stay with you. Highly recommend! Read it and start your adventure into Yellow River.
I loved the way this book is written. The characters are so real that I really cared about what happened to them. The plot is realistic but unpredictable. This book hooked me at the beginning with the power of its language and pulled me through with its suspense. I highly recommend! Be ready though, you won't want it to end.
