    25 starsLoved the idea but not the execution it was hard to keep track of all the characters sometimes and they weren't portrayed in a flattering way An air of prejudice and bitterness hangs over alot of the town and it made me want to shake the people thereThe plot moved slowly but methodically it had its interesting points but most of the time it was blah I don't mind slow moving books most times but this one was painfully sl
