|Book Club Choices: Twenty-five Years ago Today Opinion|
Stacy Juba has written a page-turner!
This has to be one of my favorite mystery books that I've read this year. The characters are well written and have so much depth that it feels like this has actually happened. As soon as I finished reading, I wanted to find out what else she had written and was surprised that this was her first book. (Note: She has written a young adult novel under her maiden name). I am eagerly awaiting her next book.
Book club groups will enjoy this book because there is so much that happens between its pages. The murder took place 25 years ago and to recall those facts has brought up a lot for the characters. If you enjoy a good mystery book, then do not pass this by.
