Despite a prologue that lacks emotion, Hall's second book in the Fog Point series picks up and eventually engages. While the pacing and suspense are moderate, the author's portrayal of Amy and her struggles is like a lighthouse for those in similar situations.
Lenore Featherjohn is the perfect hostess for her BandB in Fog Point -- whether her guests are alive or dead. She takes special care of the young girl whose body she discovers, and soon the townsfolk believe the deceased is none other than an angel. Lenore investigates the death of the unknown girl, and while everyone else is oblivious to the possible dangers, pastor Ben and his daughter realize that whoever killed once could easily kill again. But Lenore knows more than she's telling. Will she do the right thing and finally tell the whole truth before it is too late? (Waterbrook, Mar., 352 pp., $12.99)
