The Other Side of Quiet by Tara C. Allred
Technically, this is a general novel, but there are some great mystery elements too. Overall, it was a good read. There was a murder mystery and a police investigation. Mrs. Child’s, the teacher, pieced together some of the clues from the journals her students wrote in her creative writing class. These are the parts that I really, really liked.
The parts where she’s obsessing about her relationship with her husband weakened the overall story line. Not that I mind her relationships being included in the story, I just didn’t feel the writing in these parts was as strong as the rest of it.
