A Northern Light - Jennifer Donnelly There was a lot to like about this book. The setting was clearly well researched and the characters very realistic.
The protagonist Maddie works at a nearby hotel as a maid during the tourist season. A guest gives her a stack of letters to destroy but before she gets the chance to the girl is discovered dead.
I'm too old for the intended audience for the book I'm afraid. I also grew up in a more cynical time. I had a hard time believing an avid reader such as Maddie didn't realise a few things about her crush or the neighbours problems.
I won't fault the author for using these reveals since they are done to death for a reason.
