Review of Late Summer Monarch by Angela Welch Prusia
The author does a wonderful job developing and maintaining the mood of the story. Her descriptions of the town hit just the right note - you get the feel for the place without a tedious narration that ultimately becomes a distraction.
There was a lot to love about this novel. Main character Darby Fletcher is the typical girl next door, complete with the requisite teenage issues. Characters Peyton and Keaton display a vulnerability to which many in society are susceptible. While Crazy Rainey Shaw is quirky and full of insight:
Fire flashed from Rainey's eyes. "And if I was you..." She tossed her money onto the counter and stood to leave. "I'd guard my tongue. It reveals much about the heart." -Angela Welch Prusia, Late Summer Monarch
