Bad wins; good tries hard but ultimately loses.' -Before the Rain Falls
Y'all, Before the Rain Falls by Camille Di Maio is everything I want in Historical Fiction. I could not love this story more if I tried. Camille Di Maio's writing style is superb in this one. This mystery is unfolded piece by piece in alternating time lines that almost killed me. Flipping back and forth between seventy years ago and present day life helped to build my anticipation and leave me completely transfixed on what truly happened in the small Texas town of Puerto Pasar. I was so intrigued by this murder mystery I had no other choice but to binge read it, I HAD to know what happened. This is a tale about family, about love and the sacrifices that are made in the name of both. Tag along with Mick Anders and Dr. Paloma Vega as they search for themselves, and for the truth. Join Della Lee at the table for some good old Texas-style sweet tea as she tells her story. I fell in love with these characters, I fell in love with their passions and I fell in love with this book.
I give this one 5 intriguing stars out of 5.
