Wicked Little Pixie gives Up a Dry Creek 3.5 stars.
"Things I liked:
The voice. Avery has a fun writing style that had me chuckling a time or two, especially in narratives from Claire’s perspective.
The length. Although, as I said, I usually prefer longer novels (I usually end up feeling like I didn’t get enough story from a novella), the length of this piece was just right for a short, fun, whodunit.
There’s a great, surprise ending scene that sets up for an interesting sequel. (Claire has 3 older brothers, and I’m assuming they’ll all get their own story.)
The mom. Claire’s mom cracked me up! She doesn’t appear in many scenes, but when she’s around, she steals the show!"
