I feel so lucky to continue to get Early Reviewer books through LibraryThing. Usually they are books I would probably never go out and buy on my own, and then almost always wind up going above my expectations.
"Arcadia Falls" is my seventh Early Reviewer. Not only is it a clever mystery, but it's a mystery wrapped in an enigma! This story had me guessing all the way to the end, despite the author's clever use of foreshadowing. The details were what really made this book enjoyable to me: paganism, lesbian love affairs, fairy tales, and bohemianism appealed to my liberal sensibilities. I would definitely read another book by Carol Goodman.
