Review #49

Title- The Arsonist

Rating– 3/5

Genre- Women’s Fiction

POV- Third person, past tense

Trope- Mystery, Small town drama, Family relationships

Similar Books/Comps– Little Fires Everywhere (kind of)- I couldn’t think of a good one

My emotions- Curious

Characters

Frankie Rowley is the main character- worked in East Africa for fifteen years
I didn’t connect with/understand her mother at all

Plot/Blurb-

Frankie returns to the New Hampshire village where her family has always spent their summers. But the tranquility she’s expecting proves short lived when, on the very night she arrives, a mysterious arsonist begins targeting the homes of other summer residents. As this seemingly idyllic community becomes increasingly on edge, Frankie also has to deal with her father’s declining health—and begins a passionate affair with the editor of a local paper that will yield its own remarkable risks and revelations.

Best part-

The page turning of wondering “who did it”- but what’s weird is … as I write this months after reading it, I can’t remember who it was…

What I’d change- Strengthen the romance of the plot

Pacing- Medium, little slower
