What a well-written fast-paced novel. I enjoyed how the author brought a fresh new breathe into my thriller/ suspense genre of novels. Seemed like I was in a stump for awhile and I felt as if everything I was reading in this genre turned out to be similar or just didn't hold enough thrill for me. I really enjoyed this.

Enjoyed the book a lot. The story of the mystery woman was very interesting and love the parallels drawn between her and Diana. I did find out who the killer was before Kathryn

Review: RATTLESNAKE HILL by Leslie Wheeler

A cozy New England mystery, simultaneously heartwarming and intriguing, RATTLESNAKE HILL is set in the beutifully scenic Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts. Kathryn Stinson, a curator at a private Boston library, rents a rural home on Rattlesnake Hill while renovations are under way at her workplace. She chooses the locale hoping to further investigate missing segments of her genealogy. The more she strives to uncover, the more it seems she is unraveling a nest of snakes, or poking into a hornet' s nest, and she encounters both truth and unexpected danger.
