Scrapped by Mollie Cox Bryan is the second book in the “Cumberland Creek” mystery series. Publisher: Kensington, December 2012
I love it when a book pulls me into the story and never lets me go until the last page has been turned and that is what Scrapped did. This was an evenly-paced drama that kept me in suspense and guessing as to what will happen next. The writing style is a bit different from what I’m used to, but it works in delivering a well-written mystery that captured my attention from start to finish. The time spent on character development is an added bonus as the mystery is interspersed with the daily happenings of this eclectic cast of characters which makes for a well-rounded story. Having read the excerpt, I’m looking forward to the next book in this charmingly pleasant series.
