Deep in the Meadows: Review

From Goodreads:
Bianca "Bee" Thompson's brother, Jimmy has been dead for ten months, yet she still feels his presence lingering. And one question haunts her: Was Jimmy's death an accident? 

Probing into the events on the night of Jimmy’s death, Bee hears strange voices. The voices lead her to a blood-splattered room, a terrifying threat, and a deadly trap. Is Bee on the trail of her brother's murderer, or is she entangled in a totally different and much more diabolical plot?

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book! There was a great mystery, great romance, and yeah, it was pretty thrilling, and a bit scary, and yeah, it was just pretty good to read! Bee was pretty great, and so was Seth, Ryan was a bit annoying, and yeah, those are the only ones alive that we really got to know!

There was one thing that annoyed me, Bee talked about peoples inflection of the voice, a few times, and that isn't a typical thing that a teenager would say, it sounded off, and yeah, it was a bit annoying, plus it was repeated. But yeah, that was the only thing I didn't like!

All the little elements of the mystery, from the set up to bring people together, to why it all happened, it was pretty intricate, and hard to manage all the moving pieces, seeing as the majority of them were teenagers, and as a breed, teenagers aren't the most cooperative. Yeah.

I really enjoyed the romance, it was sweet, and while it started off a bit over the top, her blushing at comments, and babbling, to the guy, even though there was no indication that she had a crush on him before, and the fact that they didn't run in the same circles beyond Jimmy and him being on the hockey team together, but yeah, their romance was pretty good!

I enjoyed it, it was a nice, quick read, and a pretty great mystery, if you guys want to check it out!
