Book review: The Revenge List

I liked the conceit about this murder mystery novel by Hannah Mary McKinnon entitled The Revenge List: The central character attends an anger-management support group and makes a list of people who have wronged her in the past and to whom she should forgive. Trouble is, the list falls into the wrong hands and people start having grave accidents. The mystery is who is doing these dastardly deeds, and what does this have to do with the character’s flaws, which are many. The action takes place in and around Portland Maine and the supporting cast is engaging and just quirky enough to sustain the plot points. It makes you question your own attitude towards forgiveness and how we resolve issues with our past connections. The family dynamics are also very true-to-life, which adds to the novel’s credibility and complexity. Highly recommended.
