    I really enjoyed this novel, which is the first in the Cainsville -Olivia Taylor Jones series. It is different but in a good way. I liked how it started off as a somewhat normal tale of a young women who is leading a charmed life. Then suddenly, it takes off and just keeps going. What I like the most is you don't get all the answers in a neat ,tidy package. It's a long winding road to understand Cainsville and all it's wonderfully, entertaining secrets. Very happy to have found this series, looking forward to the book #2.
