Synopsis: None of the neighbors considered it trespassing. The run-down shack on five overgrown acres in the Sierra Nevada foothills had been abandoned for years. But their exploits on the land are suddenly threatened when a woman appears out of nowhere, claiming to have just inherited the place.

Critique: A deftly crafted read from beginning to end that is all the more impressive when considering that it is the author's debut as a novelist, "Blind Shady Bend" by Adina Sara is a rewarding and thoroughly entertaining read that will prove to be a welcome and enduringly popular addition to community library General Fiction collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that "Blind Shady Bend" is also available in a Kindle edition ($7.19).
