Interesting characters, and a well-written story with an ending I did not expect. Having lived in the area for a short time made it more interesting for me. I have downloaded her other book

Review by: Anna Drake on April 7, 2017 :
Widowmere features an artist as its protagonist, As such she sees things in colors and shapes as any good artist will do. The previous reviewer spoke out against the excessive descriptions in this book, which I believe fits the nature of this main character, and while they bothered the first reviewer, they bothered me not a whit. In fact I see Emma Lee Dole’s use of language in this novel as remarkable and thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s an astounding, intricate novel full of highly satisfying twists, turns, and deceptions.

Well, well. Literary fiction, which I usually hate, and loaded with description to the point where I suffered from simile overload. Long, too, but fascinating enough that I soldiered on to the very deft ending.

Lots of weird eccentric characters with the heroine among the most strange. Strange names, too—Eden, Selena, Bryony, Krista, Ruby, Hunter, Griff, Freddie.

Okay, the last one's not so odd but the plot certainly is.

People are dying in a small town in the Lake District of England, and Eden, a suspect herself, is unwillingly on the trail of the cause. Cause? Yes, for the deaths seem to be suicide and accidents—but are they that or something far more sinister? In fact, is Eden more likely to be arrested or become a suicide herself?

I know, but you'll need to do some reading.

I've penalized Widowmere for excess description and a couple of instances of name confusion late in the tale when the author was tired of editing.
