    Debbie Herbert s writing style makes it easy to get lost in the story I felt like I was there in the small town of Normal, Alabama, along with the colorful cast of characters That being said, I found the plot too predictable and, at times, far fetched.The story opens with a bang, and I was immediately fascinated by Violet and her haunted past As we learn about the circumstances surrounding the night of Ainsley s disappearance, I thought certain details would too easily be public knowledge, or Debbie Herbert s writing style makes it easy to get lost in the story I felt like I was there in the small town of Normal, Alabama, along with the colorful cast of characters That being said, I found the plot too predictable and, at times, far fetched.The story opens with a bang, and I was immediately fascinated by Violet and her haunted past As we learn about the circumstances surrounding the night of Ainsley s disappearance, I thought certain details would too easily be public knowl...
