This was quite a story, but I found it hard to follow as there were just so many characters and there were just too many changes with each chapter. It was hard to remember some of the characters as there were just too many chapters between characters. And the ending was so disappointing as there were major things just left unfinished. I would not recommend this book. ( )

I knew my chances of finding a yummy summer read like Tartt's Secret History were slim, so I thought maybe this would be like Carol Goodman's Lake of Dead Languages, but it fell short. Sigh.

Did anyone else feel like Bacon was hiding an integral character from the reader, despite the fact that the book is written from multiple viewpoints? When the killer was revealed, I was sort of thinking "Wait, who?" I didn't find this exciting or a neat twist, but rather an act of masking. shrug. Maybe I wasn't paying attention well enough when I was reading. ( )

I found this a flawed but engaging novel, with enough character development to hold my interest, as well as a compelling sense of place. Then it all blew up in my face with a ridiculously contrived ending. I hate when that happens. ( )

A good mystery keeps you engrossed. It has you wanting to get to the next chapter. It doesn’t have to be nonstop action. It just needs you wanting to know who did it. I think you can find that in Charlotte Bacon’s The Twisted Thread.

This is a story of a young woman found dead in a high class boarding school. That alone is traumatic and worthy of a mystery, but throw in the fact that she unknowingly had a baby and that baby is missing gives you a much bigger story. Who killed the young girl? Where is the baby? Who is the father? Who knew about it? As you go along, you’ll discover that practically everyone has a dark secret and plays a part in the mystery of the girl’s death.

I really liked the fact that this was not a straight forward mystery. Yes, I did figure out who did it earlier in the book but the history and the background of it all I only had a small inkling. There were so many twists and turns that I found myself second guessing my original solution. I stuck to it and was right but it might prove a challenge to you.

Ms. Bacon did an excellent job of creating an intricate plot. It was an enjoyable read.

The copy I received was an advanced copy with many formatting issues that did cause problems reading the book. That should be resolved in the final version.

This is a great summer read. Add it to your list.

Note: This book was provided by the publisher with no expectation of a positive review. ( )

The Good: One of the things I really liked about this novel was the setting. It takes place at a prep school, and the author gives great descriptions of the settings that I can totally imagine Armitage in my head. I enjoyed Madeline, one of the main characters. I love that the author placed a "normal" adult around the privileged, over-educated teachers that surrounded the school. I thought the way the girls and their relationships with each other was depicted, was a pretty accurate portrayal. Their little "game"they played is sadly just another version of the way bullies get their power and it only seems to reinforce that only the rich, attractive, intelligent students are the only ones destined for greatness. I think more than the tragic story of a young girls death that could have been prevented on many levels, its a story on the level of cruelty teens possess these days. I liked the little thread of romance that was peppered throughout the story. Not only was there ONE potential love interest for Madeline, but TWO! I loved it!





The Bad: I was kind of disappointed in the character development in this novel. I thought there could have been SO much more to delve into. I don't know whether the author wanted readers to like Claire by the end but I certainly did not. In a way she was so under developed that I wasn't even that invested in her death. However my distaste for Claire is also representative of the fact that the author did a good job with description and making her a disgusting character. I have to say that besides the lack of character development, I thought there were a lot of unanswered questions, some loose ends that never got tied up. I would have liked to see those issues resolved.

Overall I really enjoyed this novel. I thought the best aspect to the novel was surely the descriptions. I totally felt immersed in the world of Armitage and the characters. I give this book a B+

Five mornings a week, Madeline Christopher jogged through the cool air of Armitage, past tidy clapboard houses, below stately maples, down the quiet, shuttered High Street.
