The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly

I love good prose! Even if a book is a little flat, if it's got good prose, I'm sold. And this book did that for me. It starts off with our narrator, Nova, and her best friend Alex stumbling across a dead deer. Well, mutilated to be more accurate, with a foxglove stuffed in it's mouth. Nova, Alex, and their enemies, Matt and Jenika are the prime suspects. Lower class, working at her grandfather's diner, Nova is forced to deal with the cakes-rich kids that vacation there during the summer, one of whom she used to date. When one of the cakes goes missing only to turn up dead, Alex is accused. Nova learns things about him she never knew and when he vanishes, she's left with her worst enemy, Jenika, to prove his innocence. But can they find the murderer before they strike again?

Overall, this book was well worth the read. The relationships are complex, relatable, and honest. The writing is wonderful. There are some nice twists, one plot point was obvious but easily forgiven.

Hmm, I have heard about this book but I was not sure if it is one I would like reading. I am glad you talked about it a lot more detail. I guess it is not that much of a boring book and I just might like reading it!

-  It is wise to wear your diamonds with care, and insure them for peace of mind. After surviving the cutting process, it is unlikely that a feather will worsen after years of normal wear.  Feathers caused by impact are generally different from typical feather inclusions.  For example, if a feather is located on a cleavage plane, then the feather can extend as a result of impact. but this is rarely seen in fully faceted diamonds.
