-The Good, The Bad and The Unread


Sierra Falls, California, is one of those sleepy towns that people choose to leave. Sorrow Bailey chose to stay behind and run the struggling family lodge, but has always yearned for more. Things look up when she discovers a collection of letters from her three-times great grandmother and namesake, telling the story of a forbidden love affair.

Billy Preston is the new sheriff, a widower escaping the grief of his former life. He helps out after an accident at the Bailey lodge, and what begins as admiration for Sorrow's quiet strength quickly becomes more. When Sorrow's discovery brings fame to Sierra Falls and her dreams of a better life are within reach, one too many "accidents" have Billy wondering whether someone is willing to kill to keep them off the map...

Engaging protagonists, sympathetic minor characters, and an involved though predictable plot full of real-life problems create enjoyable escapism while leaving broad hints at episodes to come.

There were quite a few things going on in this book and though individually they were all interesting stories I felt like there were just too many to make any of them truly wonderful.

What ruined an otherwise decent book for me, however, is the fact that the author felt the need to take every single personality conflict in the book and reduce it to a misunderstanding...

I feel some of the issues in this story were more of an afterthought and really needed to be brought to light just a little more.
