A Sworn to Silence Early Review

Here is my review of the book: Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo. - I just finished reading this book tonight and found it to be mediocre at best. The language of the book is rather simplistic, which I feel keeps in line with the sub par plot. We have an ex-Amish,female, Chief of Police who is struggling to solve a recent crop of murder cases in her small town, Painters Mill. She has a devoted team of officers on hand, a meddling town council to contend with, a rogue detective that has been called in to help her, and a family secret she can never reveal. All in all your typical suspense thriller book that can be found at your local grocery store's check-out. This is the type of book that you read at the beach or find at a hostel - its a quick and easily forgotten read. The writing is weak, the descriptions are banal and the characters are one-dimensional. Overall, in my opinion, a must-not read.

Thank you to the LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program for sending me this book!
