Roanoke Ridge A Creature X Mystery by J.J. Dupuis

Despite reading the blurb, I did not retain the specifics, and when I actually got around to reading the book, I surprised by the storyline. The story has a vague form of narration from the beginning that makes you feel like the beginning was not when you entered the story and that there has been a sequence of events before the first page that we have already been an audience for. This is not something I commonly experience, and I did not expect to like it, but I did!
The lead characters relationship is not defined and is extremely fuzzy at best. There is no resolution on that front in this book, but maybe if this is to be a series, there will be something in later books. The mystery remains in the background but simply done. I may or may not have expected the turn of events, but I did not pay enough attention to it to even guess at the outcome.
Laura is back in familiar territory, it is Bigfoot extravaganza. There are people attending from all walks of life, and her father is a well-known name amongst them. She is actually there to help find an old friend but during her downtime, contemplates her life choices as well as the events occurring in town. The narration moves quite quickly with a death amidst the hunt for the missing man, and the investigation now has multiple layers. Overall it is an interesting base for a new series.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
