Yes, it was different, wasn't it? Just had to write something about a small town with a "big house" secret. LOLI've read WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS and I enjoyed it. It was very different from Miss Mae's Victorian suspenses, but the sense of place and time and setting--very well done--I liked it. Kind of a Modern Historical--set back a few years. I liked the teen angst. We never outgrow that!
