A picture-perfect New Hampshire town hides a history of scandal and intrigue -- a legacy Annie Barnes has never shaken since growing up in tiny Middle River. Five decades ago the area was rocked by a bombshell of a book, Peyton Place, and its author, Grace Metalious, who seemed to know everyone's most intimate secrets. Now a bestselling novelist herself, Annie has come home to find answers to the strange circumstances of her mother's recent death, which leads her to uncover a shocking truth about the local paper mill. The townspeople fear Annie intends to pen a Peyton Place of her very own, and no one wants her stirring up trouble. But one intriguing man is captivated by Annie's determined spirit -- and he wants to give the people of Middle River something to talk about....

This is a really terrific read. The main character identifies with the life, times and writings of Grace Metalious (author or Peyton Place) and she spins a great tale by linking the two women. It was this book that led me to other Delinsky novels.

It took me more than half the book to get into this one, but then it got really good. I suppose if you were familiar with Grace Metalious and "Peyton Place", it would much more compelling. I prefer some of the author's other books.
