When I started reading this novel, I could relate to Caroline in so many ways. It was almost voyeuristic. The VW Bug, reinventing herself again, and cautious, almost cantankerous new neighbors she has to win over or else. On top of everything else, she is working part-time at the mill (the one I actually visited this past Spring which made it ever so much more real) and comes across information someone is willing to kill for in order to keep it a secret. WOW! I could not put it down! I especially liked the snake that hung out in the attic of the mill. Kinda cool to have serpent pest control.
I would recommend Bred to the Bone to all who like a good read. It would be great for those cold days that are coming and for Christmas. Now I want to read The West Plains Dance Hall Explosion...and anything else she has written.
