on April 21, 2013 :
This is the second "Small Towns" novel and is a bit darker and more unsettled than the first. Sue-Ann's life is in flux, as are many of the returning and new characters. But as the second of three acts, that turmoil and tension is completely appropritate.
This series was a fun read for me. While I don't want to resort to cliche, I will--it really was a page-turner (even though it was on my computer)! Suspense, humor, philosophy, romance, action--what more could one want? "Madness in Small Towns," is a good story and a great diversion.
