Suspense / Mystery
in Burrywood takes an interesting look at small-town murders.
It introduces the reader to several different and unusual characters:
Annie, a homeless woman; Winona, a diner owner; Reverend Amos, an
old church preacher; and Diana, the local newspaper editor. Diana
set outs to solve the murder of Burrywood's mayor and then realizes
that several other murders are involved.
in Burrywood has plenty of suspects and murders to keep the
reader thoroughly entertained. The reader never knows whodunit till
the end, which is how a true mystery should play out. The plot has
several twists and contains a lot of excitement. The character development
is good, and each character is truly unique. Ms. Waite does an excellent
job in pulling off a good mystery. This reader can only hope that
she will continue to write more.
