Review: In A Small Town by Marc A. DiGiacomo

In a Small TownIn a Small Town by Marc A. DiGiacomo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Do you find the characters convincing? Absolutely. Most times, it felt like the author was relating his own experience and this made the book an easy read. The police procedures felt realistic and as the investigation digs deeper, the reader is easily convinced that the story could very well be based on real life experiences.

How would the book have been different if it had taken place in a different time or place? The procedures and laws may have been different but I think the exact situation can happen anywhere and anytime. As the author mentions in his introduction, not everyone can be a police officer.

What did you like about this book? I liked almost everything and was especially drawn to the author's experience of being a police officer. It really does show in the story. The few things that prevented me from giving this book a higher rating were these - this book needs quite a bit of editing, we received a mobi format book but it seemed to be formatted for paperback so instead of chapter headers we were reading the author's name over and over again.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
