Tattler's Branch Book Review

About the Book

Lilly Corbett Still has grown to love her life as the small-town doctor of Skip Rock, a tiny coal community in the Kentucky mountains. Though her husband, Tern, is away for a few months at a mining job, Lilly keeps busy with her patients and her younger sister visiting for the summer.
Her hands full, Lilly turns to her good friend and neighbor, Armina, to help keep things in order. But when a mysterious chain of events leaves Armina bedridden and an orphaned baby on her doorstep, Lilly must trust in God and her resilient country neighbors to help her uncover the truth.
While working late one night, Lilly cares for a patient whose odd behavior sets her on edge, but she’s unaware of what a mess she’s found herself in until a break-in at her office puts her on high alert. Struggling between what is right and what is safe, Lilly discovers the strength of her neighbors, her God, and herself. (Goodreads)

My Review

I have read one other book by Jan Watson and it wasn't my favorite so I was unsure about reading this one. Tattler's Branch  really surprised me with the story line. The very start of the book takes off and I really wasn't sure what was going on but neither were the characters. There is a mystery going on throughout the entire book that the reader knows parts about but I was still surprised to read the ending. I enjoyed the characters a lot and the overall feel of the setting. Lilly is a fun character but I enjoyed Armina and her strange loss of memory.

For an easy, slightly mysterious read this book is pretty good.

Four stars.
