Although this book is over 600 pages, it manages to be engaging and interesting all the way through. Very well written and highly recommended. No bad language, sex or other objectionable things.

I don't usually read a 611 page book--let alone read it in a week--but this is a fast-paced book that moves along quickly. Some may not enjoy all the descriptive details of the surrounding settings which move from Indiana, to Wisconsin, to Virginia, to England and back to Indiana, but the descriptions made the multiple settings come alive. Also, it was impossible to unravel the puzzle of Amelia Marsh's death until the end when all the pieces fit neatly together.

I've never read this author before but I was pleasantly surprised by the length and detail to this freebie. If you like the idea of everyones life being a story and that something doesn't have to blow up to be a good story then I would definitely recommend this one!

A very well written book that keeps you captivated from the first page to the last. The characters are well written and developed into their characters. A must read for all mystery lovers.

I found it boring. It has too much everyday descriptions constantly. Like a movie they've stretched too long. I gave up on it at about half way through. I rarely have done that. I see some really like it and it has a slight Miss Marple feel to it but not in that league. Edited well and has a good idea of writing. Just it's boring. Maybe it's just me then!

Great book. Also very nice to find a clean mystery without an overly preachy tone.

While not an overly intensive story, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Written in first person (?) it was delightful. While I would have liked more character development, it didn't hurt the story line at all. In this day and age there is so much violence that is was a treat to see this story handled differently......who was Ameila Marsh......the author took on a truncated trip through time to discover Amelia along with Sally, Anne and George.....

It had a little too much detail for my taste that I just skipped over; but it was still a very good book.

A good mystery though at times it did drag on and on about things that seemed unrelated to the mystery.

***** Great Read! Couldn't put the book down...didn't get much housework done but I loved the way she writes. The free book was tops and I will buy her next one. Keep up the good work.
