Kritters Thoughts: A young report straight out of college is at a small local newspaper reporting on the police blotter and obituaries when an interesting story falls in her lap and may have some major controversy behind it - a road project that could benefit some and harm others as well as the environment. In the midst of her putting the pieces together for the story she is threatened by a few to stop her investigating and leave it all alone.
Nora was a great character to follow and I loved how "green" she was, but there were definitely some moments where I wanted to give her some self confidence and tell her to charge ahead and stop asking people's opinions! I understood that she was feeling her newness, but I wanted her to get it together a little quicker.
The flow of the book was good, but not great. I felt like it was a little jumpy at some moments and then at others it was reading so smoothly. I feel like another editorial pass through could have helped this just a bit.
If you are a fan of books with a new graduate taking on their first job type books then this one is right up your alley.
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
