I liked this one a lot better than I did Angel’s Fall. The characters were layered, especially the supporting cast. The mystery was gripping, the plot fast paced, the resolution well written.
Special kudos given for Essie McNamara, our heroine’s mother. Her battle with agoraphobia is masterfully portrayed, and just adds emotional meat to the story.
An improvement, to be sure, but, still, not as edgy as some of Ms. Robert’s earlier offerings, like Sacred Sins and Midnight Bayou.
High Noon is a wonderful read on a lazy summer’s day by the pool, or on the porch swing savoring the breeze.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
