First of all.the main couple in the story are young, beautiful and intelligentBUT.who would want to name these type of characters Barney and Todd.Todd being the beautiful woman that is the catalyst of the story..seriously Barney and Todd sounds like a Bert and Ernie type of deal.just had to get that out of my A ghostly story, a young girl is abducted, and a small town history is investigated The setting is the sagebrush and juniper country of eastern Oregon Wilhelm can weave a story as tight as an Indian basket but I was able to see the pattern this time. Mystery The small town of Brindle has a secret hanging over it Too many of its children have gone missing over the years, and no one seems to notice the pattern until Todd moves there to take a job at the local paper Now her life may be in danger too.This couldn t decide if it was a ghost story, a mystery, or a thriller, and made a hash out of all three The pacing is slow like a ghost story, unless it s fast like a thriller and Todd is doing something totally paranoid like jumping out of a m Mystery The small town of Brindle has a secret hanging over it Too many of its children have gone missing over the years, and no one seems to notice the pattern until I just wasn t that impressed with this and it didn t really capture my interest excitement It annoyed me how one minute Todd and Barney could she have chosen uglier names were on the same page and the next minute they were isolated, like they went back and forth a lot Their relationship Wasn t real impressed, but this was romantic suspense and not meant to be a really impressive mystery I guess I figured out the kidnapper early on and wanted to scream at the main characters who couldn t figure it out It was way too obvious for me to enjoy the rest of the book.

I really enjoy wilhelm s barbara holloway series and decided to branch out.this may not have been the best choice for me, despite the popularity of the title.this book plumbed no depths and created no affinity with its characters as a journalist, i know the whole premise was built on very shaky grounds the weird supernatural aspects were never fully or satisfactorily addressed and resolved even the bizarre and tenuous links between past and present were farconvenient than convincing.she I really enjoy wilhelm s barbara holloway series and decided to branch out.this may not have been the best choice for me, despite the popularity of the title.this book plumbed no depths and created no affinity with its characters as a journalist, i know the whole premise was built on very shaky grounds the weird supernatural aspects were never full Lovely descriptions of the setting in eastern Oregon I enjoyed the details about putting out a small town newspaper Some interesting characters, especially Ruth Ann Colonna, the older woman who publishes the newspaper, and Ruth Ann s housekeeper and handyman, Maria and Thomas Bird lame boring the narrarator was good enough to keep it moving I didn t realize that the story went nowhere till it was too late so I just finished it hoping for the best it didn t get any better.
