Newport: Editorial Reviews

“Morrow has crafted a complicated mystery in Newport, though not of the typical whodunit variety. “There were enough secrets around [the house] to keep even Harry Houdini scratching his head in an effort to sort them all out,” she writes. Readers will delight in trying to sort out those very secrets alongside Adrian, Chapman and a Newport-sized household full of strange company. Morrow has done an impressive job of pulling together various stories and threads into a cohesive and fast-paced novel of love and regret.”
