Favorite Quote:  "It doesn't matter how hard you want to keep a secret. Eventually, it'll eat its way out of you."

Hope Falls, Season 1 is an unexpected adventure story. The main character Miriam is a middle-aged soap opera actress. She has played the same role on the same opera for the bulk of her career. She has one of the "lifetime contract." However, as ratings slip, she discovers the true meaning of a lifetime contract. She is about to be killed off on the soap opera and in real life! The book is an adventure as she and her friends try to outwit and outlast those who are chasing them.

Season 1 is obviously a precursor of seasons to come. The book ends on a cliffhanger and leaves many questions unanswered and some story lines not tied in. However, the book itself is a fast-paced adventure that keeps you guessing what's - or who's - around the next corner. Dead bodies, car chases, good guys, bad guys and a hideaway are all present.

An unexpectedly enjoyable read!
