Review: Something About Sophie by Mark Kay McComas


Something About Sophie 

Clearfield, Virginia, is a sleepy, idyllic hamlet where residents welcome its comfortable, familiar routines. But when a newcomer arrives in town, long-buried secrets threaten to surface and destroy their haven . . .

Answering a call that summons her to a stranger's deathbed, a reluctant Sophie Shepard is too late to hear what he was so anxious to tell her. What was so important that a dying man would think of her in his final moments? With the help of Dr. Drew McCarren, Sophie begins to dig into her past, setting off a chain of events that chills the quiet town of Clearfield, Virginia, to its roots.

With part of her wanting nothing more than to put Clearfield behind her and run back home, Sophie knows she won't rest until she discovers the truth. But growing closer to the residents also means uncovering their dark secrets--secrets about the woman who gave Sophie up for adoption, the mysterious part these strangers played, and the life she never knew she nearly had.

Something About Sophie is a memorable story about the power of love . . . and the things people will do, both right and wrong, to protect it.


Something About Sophie is a mystery, but it also a bit of a romance novel mixed with women's fiction...an interesting and original concept.  There is some suspense, some romance and some interesting topics involved in the story.   I found it to be a good book revolving around a small town dynamics, secrets and murder.  
I rate it 3 stars.
