Cool Water by Dianne Warren

I almost didn't write about this one. I returned it to my mom so didn't have it around to remind me.

First of all, Dianne Warren is from Saskatchewan. I love reading Saskatchewan writers, and more than that, I love reading books by Saskatchewan writers that I enjoy. I enjoyed this one.

It was completely different than many books. It was about 4 or 5 different people in a small Saskatchewan town. They stories being told aren't really connected to the others. They all know each other (because it's a small town), and they make mention of one other at times. It's not really a mystery, or a romance, or anything really. It's basically following the people around in the small town for a day (maybe a day and a half).

I did really like it. My mom wasn't as much of a fan, but I thought it was quite interesting. Possibly, I was thinking about the small town I grew up in, and the characters that could be in a book. They don't have to be dramatic characters. Everybody is interesting, and I guess this book showed that.

Anyway, I'll be looking for more of her writing.
