I've never been a big fan of crime/mystery/suspense novels. Dunno why, they just don't hold appeal for me. I enjoyed this one though. My reading time has been relegated to about 20 minutes on weekday mornings though so it took longer than it should have to read this. This book held my attention enough that I just devoted my Sunday afternoon to finishing the book since I was halfway through it. If you like quick, easy reads that boast a slice of everyday life that could belong to any of us with the excitement of small town mystery then I highly recommend this to readers of this genre.
