Book Review: Salem Falls



Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult

As promised, this is the next book I tackled from Picoult's titles, and I was immediately sucked into the characters of this novel.

Jack was just released from prison and tries to start a new life, and a new love, for himself in Salem Falls. But when words gets out of his arrival in town, and four girls dabble in magic, things go awry in a hurry.

This is primarily another pre-courtroom and courtroom drama for which Picoult is famous, and there is a bit of a twist at the end, but I found myself waiting for the "twist", and it never really came. The ending was as I expected, and the twist unsurprising. However, I still really enjoyed this title, though I think it was one of her weaker ones for me.
