It's the Tuesday after Saturday's banquet and Quinn's mysterious disappearance. Dani is drying out and warming up after nearly drowning because someone had put a hole in her rowboat. When the boat is found smashed at the foot of the falls, rumors begin to spread.
The pressure mounts on Mayor Sylvia. She's got an office full of people who want answers. Quiet Hidden Falls is not so quiet any more.
Nicole breaks her ankle during her morning run. How can she possibly help find Quinn now? And Lauren gets a strange phone call, almost like the ones she got while in high school.
There is a little more action in this episode. People in the town are getting frustrated that there is no news on Quinn. And strange things continue to happen. And I continue to like the series.
I received a complimentary egalley of this episode from the publisher for the purpose of this independent and honest review.

Review 2 for Hidden Falls The Mayor's Quandary - Episode 5 - eBook
Review originally published on i blog 4 books: http://iblog4books.blogspot.com/2014/...
Episode 5: The Mayor's Quandary I've about decided that I'm not the best serial-novel reader. I'm too impatient to see what happens, and all of these cliffhanger endings are driving me crazy! I read the last three episodes in one week, and I enjoyed it a bit more. Perhaps I should have waited until they were all published before beginning to read?? Too late now, though. Despite the fact that this episode didn't have a ton of "action" in it, I did enjoy reading more about Ethan and Nicole. I'm definitely curious about where Quinn is, and I'm pretty much committed to reading the rest of the series now. Which I suppose is the whole point anyway, right?! [3.5 stars]
Overall Thoughts So Far (Episodes 1-5) I'm definitely intrigued by this series. While there are a lot of characters to keep up with and the episodes jump quickly between "scenes," I'm interested to find out what happened to Quinn and am hoping for a few romances to develop too! I'm not sure the serial format is my favorite, but it hasn't deterred me from continuing to read!
At this point, I'm still a little wary of the high price tag. The publisher recently lowered the price to $1.99 per episode (with the first one still a free download), but that's still $24 for the complete book when all is said and done. A little pricey for me, but some may not object.
Kudos to Olivia Newport for a great new story. I look forward to reading the rest of it!
I received a free copy of this book from Barbour Publishing through Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
