As soon as I got the book put onto my Kobo and started reading, I couldn't put the book down! I was completely drawn into the story. I love the characters, they're very well developed and I can relate to them easily. Their reactions to situations are believable, I've found some authors whose characters are too ready to accept weird things happening, but I never saw that in The Terminal Diner. Having grown up in the area where the story takes place makes this book have a deeper meaning to me. I know the places she describes well, especially the airport having just come home from Florida two days ago. Seeing the name of the area where I've grown was thoroughly exciting and added an extra sense of attachment to the story. Mary Pat Hyland is an AMAZING writer, her characters come alive and interact well with each other. If you want to read a book, I would highly recommend this one.
