    1. *Sorry any errors, English is not my native language*I'm putting this book into a category 4 but seriously tempted to put it in 4.5 stars.The narrative is very well written, no doubt the writer knows how to hold the reader to the story.The mystery and suspense is not really breathtaking but all the research has been well thought out and described, so the reader is always eager to find out what the next, methodical, discovery is.The reason I didn't put this book in the five-star category was beca [...]

    2. This novel probes the opaque gentility of small town life in an eyes-wide-open way that captures the strife of changing social dynamics while preserving the almost mythic glow of Norman Rockwell simplicity associated with rural America. I often felt when reading The News in Small Towns that Moreau’s protagonist, stress-fatigued war-reporter Sue-Ann McKeon, embodies both a cutting edge, 21st century woman slogging through internal conflicts and a grown up version of Jean Louise “Scout” Finc [...]

    3. Found this book in Smashwords. It's a nice story about small town life with some mystery and romance too. There is a fair amount of horseback riding and archery in the story, and the details seem accurate. The mystery isn't too far fetched and flows nicely giving you a chance to get to know the various characters in town and how they relate to each other. The romance is a cat and mouse game, and a little awkward, but apropos to a small town I suppose. I really liked this story and am looking for [...]

    4. I found this to be a good read for several reasons. First, it kept me interested from start to finish, interesting people doing interesting things and great plot twists. I was fascinated with the idea of a big-time reporter returning home to work with her small-town newspaper. It's no murder, maybe, but has plenty of action and an odd romantic twist that'll keep you guessing. The characters were easy to relate to, as well. Overall, just a great novel.

    5. Nope, not my cup of tea, too many blokes being shagged. And the whole, "I'm going to continue shagging this bloke while seeing you on the side" just didn't do it for me either. I also didn't get much small town charm. What I did get was a bunch of dodgy townsfolk, abused horses and women who are unwilling to, or incapable of, ovaring up.

    6. This author can write, the writing doesn't feel amateurish or anything, but unfortunately, I didn't find her story engaging - at all. I liked the premise, the very beginning, but all the various plot lines including the romantic story line (my first f/f book!) were uninteresting. First and foremost, there are too many plot lines, too many angles, and of course, everything has to be explained and cleared up in the end. It felt like the author was ticking off boxes as she went along.There are anim [...]

    7. This book has been on my radar for a while, and I'm glad I finally made time for it. I read a lot of mysteries of all types--some recent favorites are series by Tess Gerritsen, Lee Child, Alan Bradley, and most recently a binge of Jacqueline Winspear. My main criteria for an enjoyable mystery are a cast of interesting, authentic characters and a plausible plot. The details of the mystery itself are secondary, though I can't stand a boring, predictable story. The News in Small Towns weaves enough [...]

    8. After finishing this book I was a bit confused, the book didn’t really have a ending. OK the ‘mystery’ was solved but the important storyline should have been the relationship between Sue-Ann and Gina and this was left just ‘hanging’.In fact I didn’t get this romance, it appeared that Gina had wanted Sue-Ann most of her life but then decided to just throw her away at the end. And did Sue-Ann just accept being ‘a bit on the side’, the ending doesn’t really say.Perhaps this is a [...]

    9. I enjoyed reading News in Small Towns. I've lived in north Florida all my life and liked the references to real and fictional locales. The characters were developed so that I feel as though I know Sue-Ann and I look forward to reading the the sequels to see what adventures await her.
