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
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."

Ian Williams was kind enough to allow me to talk about Damned If You Don't on The Catskill Review of Books, his weekly program on WJFF Radio Catskill, a public radio station in Jeffersonville, New York. He's the kind of interviewer who not only reads your book but makes you forget you're on the air. Lots of fun. Follow the link if you'd care to listen.
