About the Author - After completing a Master's in Creative Writing and working as an English professor in Ohio, Bethany Pierce now lives with her husband in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she works at an art studio and continues to write. Her first book, Feeling for Bones, was one of Publisher's Weekly's Best Books of 2007.
My review - This book had me at the Prelude! I loved this book, I loved the characters, I loved the writing style and I loved the setting. I think one of the reasons I could relate to this book was it reminded me of Ithaca. It took place in a college town, there were coffee shops and downtown apartments and hippies. It kinda felt like home to me. The Author, Pierce, did an excellent job of developing the characters. I absolutely felt like I knew everyone in the book. I kept half expecting to see Eli laying on my couch and Amy typing away on my computer and Zoe walking around my house in her funky style. This book was not an "on the edge of your seat" type book. It was familiar and comfortable, it was real life! At least it felt like it was. I was giggling on half the pages and crying by the end of the book. What I loved the most was the ending. You are thinking the ending will be predictable but is actually full of some nice little surprises! I would absolutely read more by Bethany Pierce, this is the style of writing I love!
