Free ebooks Review: Gravediggers by Cindy M Hogan

About the Book

Seventeen-year-old Billy thinks his father’s murder will never be solved—until he stumbles across an old ammo box while digging a grave in his small-town Tennessee cemetery.

What he finds leads him to question everything he knows, and his search for answers will uncover more than he bargained for: lies, secrets, and conspiracies—and behind them all, a dangerous truth.

Buy the Book

Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 2 stars/DNF

Here's why:

I picked this one up because of the blurb. I like to read the occasional mystery and stories that border the young adult/new adult line.

The idea of a young person wanted to learn about a parent's death (or murder) is natural and can make for a good storyline.

I made it 22% of the way through (according to my kindle counter) before I called it quits. I'm not sure if it was because I felt the main character was a little bit unrealistic or the plot was moving at a snail's pace or maybe it being in first-person, but I lost interest. I wanted to like this story, I really did but unfortunately it didn't grab me enough to compel me to finish it.

Would I recommend this book? For those who like mysteries, coming of age stories or contemporary young adult novels, this book might be something you'd enjoy.
