This was an enjoyable little read that started out better than it ended.
I loved the atmospheric setting, and the mystery at the beginning pulled me right in. I just wish there had been more background given on why the town feared the swamp. Also why the lady who gave out the charms could remember people while everyone else couldn't. It's like the story just touched the surface of what could have been, if that makes sense.
There is also a touch of romance in here, but this is a young adult book that in my opinion tended to lean more towards the "young" then the adult. Although we get a HEA type of ending I still think it wrapped up a little bit on the lackluster.
In anycase, it was a GOOD read, just not a GREAT read.
