    2. Whew these people are crazy I had already read the spin off to this book, Catchpenny, so I knew a bit about the town of Shirley already, but I had no idea it was this off The town is full of mystery Rival families and legends ground in history keep things interesting It s a small mountain town where outsiders are unwelcome and strange occurrences are shrugged off The story centers around Candy, a spunky teenage girl, but we see the story from many different sides This is the first in the series [...]

    5. Sarah Wathen brings a new novel to print with The Tramp This book has all the old world feel of a Heidi inspired mountain village while leaking the creep factor of Silent Hill or a Dean Koontz masterpiece.The prologue will snatch you up, but it is many chapter later before that starts to make sense chapters that invest you in a small town life the likes of which you ve never seen, though there are aspects that ring true for every community There is the shop owner, the Pastor, the drunk mom, the [...]

    6. The Tramp is the kind of book that makes your heart beat fast all through the reading As soon as I started, I felt fear, I can t explain why, but it was real, it had me on the edge of my seat till the end The plot is full of suspense, mystery, some paranormal, twists and turns, and OMG that town Creepy The characters are complex, the writing is excellent and the situations are very well developed And I can t not say anything about the art cover, isn t beautiful I don t like to copy and paste the [...]
