Review first published on my blog: http://memoriesfrombooks.blogspot.com/2013/03/something-about-sophie.html
Something About Sophie is part mystery and part self discovery. Sophie Shepard is a young woman, who comes to a small Virginia town because she receives a letter from Arthur Cubeck. She knows she is adopted and thinks that the information Arthur has might tell her about her birth mother. She is happy in her life and with her adoptive family and does not have a need to find her birth mother, but she comes.
Unfortunately, upon her arrival, she discovers that Arthur has died, and no one seems to know what information he had to share. Thus begins the pseudo-mystery of discovering what relationship Sophie Shepard has to the town of Clearfield.
Unfortunately, the mystery ends up not much of a mystery. So, the books loses some interest. Additionally, the characters are not particularly vibrant and don't elicit an emotional connection. The book loses some more interest. The story follows a stereotypical path of some mystery, some romance, and some small town intrigue. The book loses even more interest.
Fortunately, it is a quick read, but for me, by the end, nothing much interesting is left in the book.
