Another Great Courtroom Drama...,
This review is from: Salem Falls (Paperback)
Jack St Bride ends up in Salem Falls following eight months spent in prison for a rape (against a minor) that he didn't commit. He tries to keep his head down and keep out of trouble, but finds himself falling for Addie Peabody, the owner of the local diner. He also begins to get unwanted attention from a group of young girls, who all think of themselves as Wiccan.
As soon as news is out that Jack was accused of sexual assault and rape, the town's folk go out of their way to make him unwelcome. Then he gets accused of rape by the daughter of one of most influential men in town...the inevitable courtroom drama follows...
This was a really enjoyable book. The characters were well drawn, even if they weren't particularly likeable! The drama moves on at a good pace and there's a bit of a twist at the end.
