Can I give it 4 1/2 stars?

I thoroughly enjoyed The Ophelia Trap. Kate Burns writing grabbed me with the first page and held me right until the end.

Julia Henry is independent and strong willed. She has witnessed a death of a young woman she barely knows, but she is driven to find out what really happened.

This story is full of twists and turns, a glimpse of paranormal, deceit, murder, lies and depravity and deep and painful secrets that change lives when they are revealed. I loved the way Kate Burns let the story line unfold and I didn`t foresee the way it played out until it was happening.

I also enjoyed the little bits of community and history that she included in the book. For me it added to the color and rounded out the story

This is a great read for anyone who enjoys a mystery, with a bit of danger and a heroine who is determined to solve it. I am looking forward to Kate Burns next book!

I was a little disappointed in this book. It was very rambling, with a lot of extraneous information. The connections were not very believable and the heroine took some very foolish chances. Hard to follow and rambling, yet I forced myself to stay with it until the end, only to find yet another unbelievable coincidence. I am glad it was free.
