A Stillness Of Chimes Review

A Stillness of Chimes by Meg Moseley is the story of Laura Gant, who comes home to Georgia for her mother's funeral only to learn that her father has been seen around town - after he was thought to have drowned years ago.  As she begins to clean out her mother's house she finds clues to a family history she was never aware of, and she starts to get her hopes up that her dad might be alive after all.

This book gave me the feeling of musty smells and peeling paint, but in the best possible way.  The descriptions of the town and settings were so colorful, and there was an undertone of creepy mystery through most of the book that added to the overall charm of the story.  There was also a subtle romance through the book as Laura is thrown together with her old flame as she investigates.

As I was thinking back on the story, I'm not sure I have read a book that was as interesting as this where so little actually happened!  I thought it was very well written, and it kept me interested without even needing to use a lot of action, which is not easy to do.  The characters were really believable and likable, and I liked the subtle character growth through the story.  The ending was good and fit really well with the tone of the rest of the book, I thought.

I'd recommend this book for anyone who likes a mixture of drama and mystery.

Note: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
