Bonfire A Novel by Krysten Ritter published by Crown Publishing is a very fast read and not what you would expect from someone who started out as an actor and producer. I love watching her on Jessica Jones and I think part of the appeal of picking this bookwas knowing the person who wrote it and being such a big fan. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this fucking together and how much I actually enjoyed the story. The story Surrounds Abby Williams a woman who is asked to investigate local complaints of a water plant of her home town ten years after her high school graduation. The story should center around the current case that has brought her back home, but what we are given as readers is a gift of the past and how it all ties into the case. While I feel that most lawyers should feel disjointed from the cases they work I find Abby’s bleak future and rocky past endearing as it shows two things, first being the development of the character that is Abby and the emotional trauma that she goes through to push this story through to the end. Abby is unsettled by her past and the disappearance of her friend-enemy Kacyee who supposedly left town after faking an illness due to the water supply.

I don’t want to give two much away I think as a reader it is important for people to unwrap a good book one page at a time. I will say that social climbing and bullying play a big role in small towns where you want to give yourself the best possible outcome in life., Who gains the most from this lawsuit who stands to lose the most and how does Abby put her life back together before losing her sanity. 4 solid stars for a book you can devour in one sitting.

I did enjoy this book. I am also sucked in by mystery and also going back to one's past and dealing not only with the mystery but also their own past. I thought the pacing was a tad clunky at points. But I was super invested in the mystery and the main character grew on me. It was very hard for me not picture krysten ritter in this role but that also increased the love of this novel. I thought the novel was fast pace mystery. I will admit I did not love the lead from page one but she grew on me. If you are unsure maybe rented it from your lib. But I did enjoy the read and seeing what story she would tell me!… (mais)

A little muddled in places, but generally a very good book. I'm not sure if knowing that the author plays Jennifer Jones on a Netflix series helped or hindered things: I kept picturing the main character as Jennifer. lol
