When one of her students is killed in a hit-and-run on River Road, it raises memories of Nan Lewis's own daughter, killed in a similar accident six years prior. And because Nan has damage to her car after hitting a deer while driving home from a faculty holiday party that same night, she becomes a suspect. In the days following the accident, Nan finds herself shunned by the community-- and begins to suspect that the two accidents are connected.

Instead of innumerable memorial services, the town and college should improve that killer intersection.

There are so many worn out characters in the book!
Nothing new. Too many clichés, including the ending.
It seems to me - A lot of described things are directly related to the author's real life job - teaching of creative writing.

While not as strong as some of Goodman's previous titles, this one kept me on the edge of my seat and I finished it in one day. An atmospheric setting, compelling characters, and lots of red herrings made for a page-turner of a read. And I just loved the ending!

Goodman is one of my favorite authors who has not written an adult fiction book for a while. Naturally I was excited to get my hands on this and though I've been in a reading slump lately I tore through this in a day. There's really nothing original or startling in the story but this author just has a way of making everything work so well. All of her novels are stand-alone so even if you've never read her, you'll like this book.
