Review title: Tenderbox of Secrets.
Do you want to know a secret? Well, there are many secrets in this tale about "Zora and Me." A man comes to town and a few days later he is found dead. How did he die? And why did he die? *Mystery and suspense surround Zora, find out the secrets she uncovers as Carrie spends time with Zora. *Well-developed plot, with plenty of twists and turns to keep readers guessing about the truth. Also, there is a great supporting cast for the protagonist which allows readers to be drawn into the center of Zora's story. *Fascinating leisure time reading.
