    21. At first I wasn't sure this was the book for me - I have never been a big follower of rock and roll superstars, but then the story grew on me. And I kept wondering what was going to happen. I "sort of" suspected who might be behind all the bad things happening at Castle Rock, but the ending still had a few surprises for me. That, to me, makes a book a success: if I haven't figured out all the answers before the last page. Another mark of success is: do I want to see what happens to characters i [...]

    22. Not a great mystery--predictable and/or convenient. I think Amelia gets involved in murder solving cause she's a bit of a control freak? Also, maybe don't wait till 70% of the book is over to Google your main suspect. Not a great love plot--which was basically, "I think you're hot and you think I'm hot."The dialogue was sometimes cringe worthy. Like Amelia starting a conversation with a friend who thinks his girlfriend cheated on him with: "How's it going, buddy?"And Amelia gets called "doll fac [...]
