A STRANGER IN WYNNEDOWER
Greene promises “love and suspense with a dash of Southern gothic” in her third novel, but readers might feel cheated on the “love” part. A handful of characters will arouse curiosity, but the heroine steals the show. Without her, the storyline would be colorless. Luckily, the author’s writing style hasn’t faltered; her prose still has panache, and her work always turns out to be a pleasant read.
