The Blackbird Season by Kate Moretti

This book was an advance copy I downloaded via NetGalley. This book has all the makings of a deeper intrigue; unlikable characters, small town society with layers and layers of issues.

The story is relatively simple, after a very strange incident that occurs in a small Pennsylvania town things start spiralling out of control. There are strange accusations flying around and everyone has their own burden to bear. Each of the strange ensemble is struggling with both inner demons ( not in the sense of actually requiring medical attention) as well as what fate throws at them.

The only reason I struggled with actually completely enjoying this book was the rapid change between the timelines and most of the characters all being annoying in their own way. The actual main story line in itself was very good but the bad emotions involved seemed to drag away the focus.
