I've heard some fantastic reviews on Thin Places, and it is on my list to read soon. I am fond of books that take place in the Pacific Northwest, and the story line sounds like it is a good mix of characters and plot. I probably would not have chosen this book had I not found such great praise and reviews here.

i Just read the first chapter of the book..It really is written well and makes me want to go buy it so I can finish reading it. This is the first book like this that I have read and wouldn't mind reading other works by diane prettyman.

I can already tell that this book is going to be fantastic! I was already engrossed from just the first few paragraphs and could feel myself liking the characters that were introduced. Finn has already made a great first impression on me and I cannot wait to read the rest of this book to see what the ending holds for me and the other readers! Fantastic!

This story sounds like something Nicholas Sparks, author of "Safe Haven" and "Dear John," would write. You want to pick up the book just to uncover the mystery of the title, "Thin Places," and not just the ending.

I agree it does definitely conjure thoughts of Nicholas Sparks. But adding the elements of mystery is a nice touch. Sounds like just the perfect story, I'm considering picking it up now. Thanks for the review!

After reading the review of the book, which I thought was very long and detailed, I feel no need to read the book. It does not hold enough mystery, suspense or endearment for me.
