The blackberries on the cover of "A Stillness of Chimes" got my attention and then things only got better after I realized that Meg Moseley would be taking her readers to the south once again.
This is a quick and painless read about the struggles Laura Gannt faces after the death of her mother and the rumors that perhaps her Dad isn't dead even though he is supposed to have died 12 years ago.
Moseley worked a little more romance into this one. The truth is, I can do without that stuff in my books and movies.
She also drags her feet in telling us if Laura's Dad is really dead or not...I'm not going to spoil anything for you. You just need to know that it was a little slow.
Aside from the romance and the slow factor, the story really was great! Moseley paints a picture of life in a small southern town and weaves plenty of subplots in to keep your mind off the fact that all you really want to know is, "What's the deal with Laura's Dad?!?!?!". You might "know" a few of the characters from your own town or maybe it'll be so unfamiliar that it's intriguing to see the dynamics that small towns function around.
