      Thank you Edelwiess, author, and the publishers for allowing me the opportunity to read this e-arc.
      Eek! It’s been awhile since I put proper thought into a review, besides “yeah I liked this.”
      So yeah, I liked this… but it was slow going for me and that the 1960’s timeline to be a bit of a slog. So much so, that I almost gave up about mid way through. The story does pick up though and I found that I had to know if I was right on who I thought did it.
      Annie is a bit annoying. What is a shame though, is when I was talking about it I couldn’t give any solid examples as to why. I just thought her character was a bit bland and paper thin. I didn’t really care about her, or her mother Laura, or her apparently weird life. It was all talk and no show. Laura lacked emotion and closed off to the loss of her Great Aunt, the one who provided the home they live in.
      Despite this, it really did pick up and I began to care about most of the characters. My favorite being Francis. I liked her character and her strong will. Most of the townspeople had great character and stories. I actually thought how I wished Jenny would feature more in this and be the “Watson” she jokes about.
      So yeah, I liked this.

      I had never heard of Creepy Cat or the author/artist Cotton Valent, but now I have her webcomic bookmarked just so I can read more.

      She also has another webcomic called “Glitch” which looks amazing as well.
