Review - The Cutting Season by Attica Locke
Title: The Cutting Season
Author: Attica Locke
Received: From Publicist
Release Date: September 2012
What is it About?
Caren and her family have lived on the plantation Belle Vie for many generations. Walking the grounds Caren finds a dead body which leads for trouble for everyone on the plantation.
Generations of Caren’s family have lived on Belle Vie. From slaves to running the plantation as a historical reenactment site. With a recent murder that her daughter has a connection to, Caren has more to deal with than ever.
For a book that is labeled mystery I found a lot of it was predictable but sometimes addicting to read. I say addicting because although I figured out who was working with the murderer I didn’t figure that Caren would keep so much from the police. The writing was okay I am not sure why but I could tell this was a newer author. It was interesting that the love interest part did not overwhelm the story, like some mystery books do.
