I should have enjoyed this book more than I did - the description of it sounded like a book I'd enjoy. I think one of the problems I had with this is that the characters all seemed very one-dimensional and there didn't seem to be any real reason that they acted as they did, except for plot purposes. It also seemed incredibly rushed - here's the plot, here are a bunch of complications - ok, that's enough, here it is all tied up with a bow on top.
On the other hand, I thought there was some potential here, too. I think I'll probably read the second book in the series - it may be that now that we've got the basic characters in the small town established and a lot of background already set, the plot may be less pat.
