Damned if You Don't by Anita Page
Review by Don Metzler
L&L Dreamspell Trade Paperback  ISBN/ITEM#: 9781603183819

"Author Anita Page's debut novel is a winner, start to finish. Page's characters come alive with the everyday concerns, fears, and challenges of real people, the sort of challenges that most of us deal with on a regular basis. The situations and scenes that Page draws are believable and down-to-earth, sometimes gut-wrenchingly familiar. From Hannah's involvement at a help center for battered and at-risk women, to the shady, graft-ridden politics of small town America, it all rings true. The sometimes lush but always well-developed settings in the Catskill Mountains of New York provide a backdrop that adds color and visceral substance. The prose is crisp and enjoyable to read, and the story moves at a pace that keeps the reader involved, but never seems frantic or hurried.

 The conclusion of Damned If You Don't leaves the door open for this becoming a series rather than a one-time effort. Future novels featuring amateur sleuth Hannah Fox would be welcome indeed."
