I am reading this series from the beginning and this, the third book is absolutely my favorite so far. That being said I am a medical professional and love medical history. If you are interested in the current controversy over vaccines and autism and/or are interested in diphtheria and a good mystery with a female protagonist who happens to be a priest this book is for you. I must say it encompassed all my interests (except dogs :-)) and was well researched and written. I guess you can tell I loved it!
I really like Russ and Clare two of the most unlikely pair of sluths and romance matches. Never know what secrets small towns can tell. This is the 3rd in a series and I'm now going to read the others really caught my attention.
Not much comment on this one, I'm sure it is one that a lot would really like but it is very slow to get to the main story then it just a back and forth between 'then and now' and to me it got very boring and very slow so I just gave up on it getting any better, but I'm sure there are some that would like it.
A story of events that happened 50 years ago that affect what begins to happen at present. Clare and Russ find themselves both investigating the town's history but from different angles. Many surprises await the reader.
