"The Water Tower Club" Book review
by BK Mayo
From the author of the award-winning novel "Tamara’s Child," comes a story crackling with mystery and suspense.
The day after graduating from high school, Darryl Coombs fled his hometown of Grotin, Kansas, hoping to put the memories of his nightmarish childhood behind him forever. Now, ten years later, his sister’s arrest on a charge of attempted murder has Darryl reluctantly returning to his childhood home. He is desperate to save his sister from prison, but his unwitting actions lead to deadly consequences that tear apart the fabric of a community and send him on a personal journey the end of which he could never have imagined.
MY REVIEW: Exploring themes of dysfunctional homes and past trauma, B K Mayo takes an approach of present day combined with flashbacks to explore Darryl and his sister's past and present. This book definitely had my attention, but the ending seemed to come out of nowhere and to be very far-fetched.
I am giving this book a rating of 3 stars.
I received a digital version of this book from netgalley and Fir Valley Press in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
