THE BUTTERFLY FARM
Genre: Inspirational, Mystery/Thriller/Suspense
Following her husband's death, Harriet MacIver gets a job as a travel writer. Her first assignment is covering a small Costa Rican cruise populated by college students seeking credits and others wanting to learn about the area. Harriet's soon embroiled in a mystery when her boss's daughter disappears and another passenger is found dead.
Harriet is stonewalled by the authorities at every turn. When another young woman disappears, Harriet gathers those she believes to be friends and sets off to discover exactly what's happening.
Noble's engaging mystery entertains and enlightens. The rich Costa Rican scenery and the incredibly detailed butterflies are delightful, and the reader feels a part of the story as Harriet takes risks to discover the truth. The spiritual message is rather light, but the suspense and intrigue are excellent. (Jun., 320 pp., $13.99)
