finished reading

This Maine author's mystery is richly descriptive.  I learned a lot about the organic maple syrup business.  Of course, the dog storyline was great!  The setting is as much a character as any of the people.  The intermingling of Maine and Canadian citizens is spot on--crossing and recrossing the border is typical.  

I'm excited about the author's visit to my local library later this month.  And I'm looking forward to my book group's discussion.

From the publisher:
A boy dies in the Maine woods. His death is judged an accident, but suspicions are raised.
Set in the remote maple sugar camps of northwestern Maine, the story unfolds around the maple syrup industry and its producers.
