Book Review - Raveled

About the Book
What’s a girl to do when her imprisoned brother begs her to delve into their father’s sixteen-year-old murder conviction? How about peel back the lies, upend the fairy tales, and roil the populace of Lavitte—a sweet apple of a town with a wormy, festering core? That’s what Allison Fennimore chooses. Despite her infamous surname and people’s wilted memories, this jaded cynic of a daughter sinks her teeth in and refuses to let go. She can practically taste the bitterness of that long-ago, twisted night when two teenagers died, linked to her father by bad luck and a few strands of rope. Ignoring the dense local atmosphere where image trumps substance and lies become legend, Allison stirs the pot. The more layers she discards, the more elusive the truth becomes. And when a key source of information turns up dead, the dark edges of resentment coil in around her like a slowly tightening noose. As revelations get ugly, Allison may wish she’d never ventured toward the forbidden fruit of truth.

About the Author
Anne McAneny honed her writing skills as a screenwriter for many years before turning to novels. Several of her screenplays became finalists in contests and still circulate through Hollywood on a regular basis. Her first novel, the humorous and heartening CHUNNELING THROUGH FORTY, became a top-selling e-book. Her other books include FORETELLER, a fast-paced mystery with a touch of the psychic, and OUR EYES MET OVER CANTALOUPE, the amusing tale of a woman's exit from her half-baked state of existence. Represented by April Eberhardt of April Eberhardt Literary Agency, Anne lives in Virginia with her family and several pets that she tries hard not to overfeed. Check out all of Anne’s books, and her slightly askew thoughts, at

My Take on the Book
Talk about a book that makes you feel like the main character's life was nothing but a lie. In this book this is exactly what you find as the main character delves into the murder of her own father. This book is so well written and, at least for me, kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. one of the things that I really loved about this book was the rich detail and description that the author gives to the surroundings that the character interacts with. The author has a way of making you as a reader feel that you are there in the situation and the place where the character is, and this are makes reading the book it even more real and fun.
