A Rant of Ravens was a fun, light read.  I really enjoyed it!

I was drawn to this book after I read about the setting: the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.  My family vacationed there every summer growing up, and reading A Rant of Ravens was like being back in the mountains again.  I loved that aspect of the story---the beautiful imagery was one of my favorite things about this book.

I love a good stand-alone read and A Rant of Ravens is the perfect example of why stand-alone novels are so satisfying.  The story is complete!  No cliffhangers, no waiting to see what happens.  The action happened, the mystery got solved, and the characters moved on with their lives.  

A Rant of Ravens is a murder mystery, and it was written in a way that made it feel almost light hearted.  I love it when authors don't take their books too seriously, and Goff hit just the right note with this story.  

I was surprised by the ending and I loved that.  I also liked that this is a clean adult fiction novel.  A Rant of Ravens is a fast, fun read, and I'd definitely read Christine Goff again.
