Elizabeth kelly writes the kind of dialogue you wish you had thought of when someone insults you.....and you think of a good one liner the day later.
I liked this book better than her first novel, and if the trend continues, I will like her next one even better than this.

An old secret causes a present-day murder on Cape Cod. Life among the wealthy, horsey set. Suspenseful page turner; didn’t want it to end! Great dialogue!

An intriguing story of tragic consequences of secrets kept too long - peppered with witty banter and clever repartees. A brilliant balance of danger and levity - a unique combination.

I could not force myself to read this novel. The description said the family was eccentric; I found them nasty to each other and their so-called friends. I couldn't even identify with the 12-year-old protagonist. It was not worth my time and effort.
