In her debut novel So Much Pretty, Cara Hoffman combines a mystery and thriller with a social commentary on domestic violence and poverty in rural America. Once you dive into this novel, you’ll only resurface once you’re done (or to check the locks on your doors)!
So Much Pretty by Cara Hoffman
“In her fearless first novel, So Much Pretty, Cara Hoffman demolishes our illusions about country life by addressing the problems of poverty, domestic abuse, teenage violence and environmental damage that are threatening to destroy the small communities of rural America.” – Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times
“Stacy Flynn is a reporter covering the tiny town of Haeden. But when the body of a waitress and local favorite, Wendy White, turns up, Flynn bites into the story like a starving dog. Something is very wrong with the way the police and the town are treating White’s murder, and she’s not the only one who thinks that way.” – Kirkus Review
