Review: Something about Sophie

Author: Mary K. McComas
Title: Something about Sophie
Description: Sophie has been summoned to a town she’s never visited by a man she doesn’t know. Unfortunately, he dies before she can speak with him. When Sophie meets a charming doctor, she’s torn about leaving; when people start to die, she’s forbidden to leave. Sophie knows that she’s adopted, and she strongly suspects that Arthur knows the secret of her parentage.
Review source: Library Thing Early Reviewers
Plot: McComas kept the plot moving and parceled out information steadily. The ending isn’t a real shocker, but neither was it signaled too early on, so I was interested to keep reading.
Characters: Sophie is a kindergarten teacher and about as interesting as you would imagine her to be. Her boyfriend is as interesting as she deserves.
Writing style: Mostly fine, but some odd shifts in point of view and some awkward phrasings. I’m not sure how much of that will be fixed up by the time the book is released—I had an ARC.
Audience: Chick lit.
Wrap-up: An inoffensive read. OK, enjoyable. 3/5*
