Intelligently written, witty and funny. Loved the story and colour of characters. Very good read.

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.
