Laura, Cassie, and Sean are three life long friends living in the south. Laura's father is a Vietnam Vet that has been battling PTSD for 30 years. Sean's father is a violent alcoholic who abuses his children. Cassie's mother has a screw loose, but no one can figure out what is going on. The three together make the perfect friends. "Stillness of Chimes" by Meg Mosely is a mystery novel surrounding the three friends and their families. Laura's father, Elliot, is declared dead after going missing on a lake 12 years before. After her mother dies, there are suddenly Elliot sightings. And the rumors start to fly to the point where he becomes the towns own version of Big Foot. Laura starts to question and the investigation is on.
Mosely is great at keeping the reader on the line. She drops little tid bits that leave the reader saying, "Wait! What happened?" Then you must keep reading to find out. Hard to put down. I didn't especially like the end though. I thought the climax should have been broken down into two events. Making it a little more probable. But other than the last 10 pages, I loved the book. I recommend reading it; ya never know, maybe you'll love the end. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from www.bloggingforbooks.org.
