THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
A new author for me. I found it difficult to get into the story as there were a number of characters and the writing kept jumping between them. It is better to read in order. Eventually, the writing smoothed out and later part of the book flow easily.
There are three main characters Zoe, Jenny and her Mother, Dora. Dora is a librarian Zoe is a little person and Jenny has a relationship and works with a retired homicide detective. A body is found along the side of a major freeway. At first, it is thought that it was a hit and run. That proved to be wrong. Another teenage girl is missing. Dora spends her time welcoming the newcomers to the area. The owner of the mansion is a little person like Zoe. Who is guilty of the kidnapping? Will law enforcement find the missing person in time? What did the community decide it needed? I recommend this book.
