The Scent of Rain and Lightning

The Scent of Rain and LightningThe Scent of Rain and Lightning by Nancy Pickard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story kept me involved with sustained suspense. I didn't expect the truth until the big reveal at the end. The plot, sub-plot and characters are all successfully developed. I felt the joys and the pains of each of the latter as their individual stories unfolded. The novel is a well written, stand alone mystery reminiscent of Mary Higgins Clark. It would have earned 5 stars from me were it not for the occasional "f-bombs" and some adult content. This is my first read from Pickard and won't be my last.
