She Came From Away by D. Edward Bradley

Pages:280 
Format: ebook 
Buy the Book: Amazon  

Goodreads:   After an unknown uncle leaves Riley Barnett his estate in Conception Bay, Newfoundland, Riley is lured from her university life in Toronto to Canada's east coast. Conception Bay seems to be a quiet, quaint town full of friendly townspeople. But Riley quickly discovers that her uncle's death is shrouded in mystery and secrets, and also realizes that not everyone in Conception Bay is happy to have her there.

With Paul Sutherland, an attractive and chivalrous local, and a few loyal friends by her side, Riley faces gunshots, break-ins, and worse in her new town. 



Kritters Thoughts:  An interesting mystery that took place in a place I have never heard of with an interesting set of people in a small town.  Riley, a college student, is surprised to find out she has inherited a home from an uncle that she hasn't heard from in years.  She quickly packs up her things and moves to a new place to see what is left from her mother's side of the family.  

The premise of the story was fantastic.  I loved how this young girl was excited to take a break from school and try a new adventure and just see where it led.  As well, the mystery behind the events that happen to her in this town and in her home were interesting.  I couldn't wait to find out who was terrorizing her and what their intentions were.  My main concern with the book lies in the editing, I think there could have been a few more tweaks to make it flow a little better.

I would recommend this read to those who need a little mystery and intrigue with characters that are easy to fall in love with.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
