New Review for


North is smooth, engaging, and, and . . . is not merely a ‘whodunnit’ kind of novel. Yes, the murder and other mysteries that follow are the main plot point; but the small town setting adds a layer of interest and charm to the storyline. . . . The characters and their backstories spice up the plot with interesting twists, turns, and, of course, gossip. . . . North is ideal for a lazy evening at home or cozy weekend vacation. . . . [T]his small-town mystery has just enough intrigue and lighthearted spunk to keep the pages consistently turning.” READ THE REVIEW at Boomer Magazine.
