I received an ARC copy of this novel from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewFirst the good Royes draws good characters and she writes well This is the fourth in the series and although I have not read the first three I can get a sense of the history these characters share and a sense of Jamaica as a place I will also say that the Rastas are an interesting people and I learned uite a bit about their culture and history But I only gave this book two stars for a reason As a mysterythriller it is a complete snoozefest I was over 70% of the way in and literally nothing had happened but the characters driving around talking to people and reminiscing about past events none of which were particularly interesting The one slightly interesting but completely predictable “mystery” if you can even call it that was wrapped up in a few pages toward the very end of the book in an almost comically low impact fashion No tension whatsoever I confess that there were times when I started skimming when characters spent pages explored their feelings for each other for the umpteenth time Basically several likeable characters doing pretty much nothing for about 300 pages

The Rhythm of the August RainD it’s clear that whoever wanted Katlyn buried all those years ago will do anything to keep the truth buried as wellAs in her previous novels The Sea Grape Tree The Man Who Turned Both Cheeks and The Goat Woman of Largo Bay Gillian Royes transports readers into a beautiful Caribbean setting where life is cheap but religion is strong and one man is still trying to solve the island’s relentless uestions. I love Gillian's Shad Series She brings me back into Jamaica with its musical language and colorful characters plus the shady government I like these cozy mysteries because they avoid the blood and guts and focus on solving a problem Just gave a copy of her third book to new friends who are natives of Jamaica
