The Mist Rises Over Notchey Creek—Harley Henrickson #1
Liz S. AndrewsPosted 14 December 2019 by the-librarian
Liz S. Andrews’ writing is beautiful in this book. I loved how The Mist Rises Over Notchey Creek evokes the sense of being in a place, of experiencing a place, of living in a place, and of knowing and understanding people (not just characters). You can tell she loves words and loves the place she is writing about. It is really a fun, remarkable read.
This is the story of Harley Henrickson, a 27-year-old woman, who is living in the town she grew up in and running her family’s whiskey distillery and shop. She is caught up in the middle of a complicated murder mystery and must navigate trying to live her life, run her business, work with the colorful people in her town, and figure out what is happening all at once.
There are some very predictable story beats and some that seemingly come out of nowhere. Overall, however, the story is strong and the writing even stronger. As I mentioned earlier, it really is a beautifully written and rich novel. I was very quickly drawn in and loved the town and the people in this story.
This is a good mystery novel and a lot of fun to read. I bought the second one before I even finished the first one and am excited to read the third one coming out sometime next year. If you enjoy mysteries, you can’t go wrong with this book. If you love beautiful writing and and engrossing setting, you also can’t go wrong with this book.
