Flowers perfectly captures small town USA - the social pressure to do the right thing, the in-line thinking. the small indiana town is a great setting, the people in its community are pretty interesting characters, and the combination of both create an engaging atmosphere. If you are familiar with the most debated true crime cases, a staged crime scene by a parent to cover up the death a child isn’t that out-there. The writing was adequate, but with too much telling, not enough showing, I grew bored and found myself speed reading.

Her father Billy came home in a rage late one night after finding out from his longtime friend, Dave (the high school nickname of Margot’s Uncle Luke), that Dave/Luke was actually the father of the twins. I think I expected a lot due to the author's history as a crime podcast producer, and maybe I would have liked the book more had I not known her background. I felt like something was left off, I actually turned back in my kindle to see if I accidentally skipped some pages, but no.This spring, some media outlets raised the possibility of doing enhanced DNA testing in the hopes of finally solving the case, but I haven’t seen any results of that or know if it ever happened. Before the actual ending was a great twist, and this book kept me guessing continuously, although other reviewers figured it out and rated it differently. Krissy’s “suicide” occurs that very day, so Jodie thinks that Dave/Luke must have killed Krissy after she told him that he was the twins’ father.

Overall I thought it was entertaining and I think Ashley is a good story teller, but there were some pretty glaring contrivances. Margot has moved home to Wakarusa to care for her uncle who has been struck down with early onset dementia. Twenty-five years ago, January Jacob’s parents awoke to find their daughter’s bed empty, a horrifying message spray-painted onto their wall. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this debut novel and am excited to see what this author comes up with next.Margo comes back to her hometown to find out what happen to January after another girl goes missing. But after what happened to January, WHY did Dave/Luke never say anything about this to Krissy or the police or anyone? ANNNNNND my biggest gripe of all: she doesn’t reveal what happens to the main character and the story is left unresolved. She used a hammer to smash the basement window from outside and spray paint threats on the wall and make it look like an intruder took January. It’s been 25 years since the death of her childhood friend, January Jacobs, and she feels that more childhood killings are related to that of her friend.

I mean, I guess Krissy had taken a sleeping pill, but the sound of the etch a sketch woke her up but not the slamming of the door and the sound of her daughter falling down the stairs? People who listen to true crime podcasts know that in a small town it’s easy to think that there are “All Good People Here. And after Krissy finds Jase standing over January, she supposedly has enough time to get Jase back to bed (without asking him what happened, for some reason), get rid of the body, and spray paint the wall (again, why? Unfortunately I cut the half star and I decided to give three solid, it’s not very good but it’s still okay read stars!

I love crime junkie podcast, but can easily pick up on her “cliche wokeness” that is subtly injected. Seriously for starters just say he has dementia or early onset dementia stop referring to it as his condition. In the book, January’s father Billy, in a fit of rage over discovering that he’s not the biological father of January or her brother, means to harm his wife, but injures his daughter instead. It tells the story of a journalist who uncovers her hometown’s dark secrets when she becomes obsessed with the unsolved murder of her childhood neighbor—and the disappearance of another girl twenty years later. In 2009, after Krissy confided in Jodie that she had been the one to stage January’s death as a murder, Krissy says she’s going to tell Dave the truth.
