Intriguing Mystery  Mar 21, 2007
Rachel Flynn's brother,Josh, is in prison, and a distraught mother, whose children have been taken away from her on Rachel's recommendation, tries to shoot her. In other words, life is going on pretty much as usual. Then an unsigned note arrives in the mail with a chilling message. A body is going to be found at a construction site. When the body actually turns up, it has been buried there for at least twenty years. The corpse is identified as a boy who was the neighborhood bully.

Rachel promises Trace,her husband, she has no intention of getting involved. But then more letters arrive, and Rachel is the police's only contact with the letter writer. She is drawn in some mysterious way she doesn't understand to a house in the victim's old neighborhood. Too many people are hiding secrets and some of them are going to be hurt if the investigation continues.

Rachel and her quirky friends continue to dig during the past, seeking a solution. Even though the victim was a very unplesant person, and no one really wants to see this crime solved, justice must be done, regardless of the consequences. Sticks and Stones is an intriguing story full of surprising twists and turns.
 
Sticks and Stones will break your heart, yet offers hope for healing.  Mar 15, 2007
As the title suggests, Susan Meissner tackles the subject of bullying in her second Rachael Flynn mystery.

Rachael, now working at the Ramsey County attorney's office in Minnesota, receives a disturbing, unsigned letter:

"They're going to find a body at the River Terrace construction site. He deserved what he got, but it wasn't supposed to happen. It was an accident."

The body turns out to be that of a fifteen-year-old boy, long presumed to have run away; he'd been buried for over twenty years. Initial research confirms that he had been a neighborhood bully, terrorizing all the children on his street, unstoppable by adults, school, or police.

Rachael and detective Will Pendleton begin to search for answers: how the bully died, and for the person who wrote the letter.

Rachael has a strong sense that the writer of the letter is among those whom the bully tormented on the street where his body was discovered. One by one, Will and Rachael interview the now-adult victims, and the nagging sense Rachael has about an old abandoned house won't leave her alone.

Sticks & Stones takes place only a few months after Widows & Orphans ends. Trace and Rachael, with baby McKenna, have moved to the loft apartment they purchases at the end of the first book.

However, even though this book is the second in the series, it is not imperative that one reads Widows & Orphans first. Sticks & Stones gives enough background that new readers will not be lost for not having read it.

Rachael remains one of my favorite literary heroines. She is a good woman placed in impossible situations, trying to get a grip on her new spiritual gift. Trying, as we all are, to make sense of life, balancing work and family and a growing desire to fulfill God's purpose for her life.

Trace and Fig's artist friends add a helping artistic hand with the investigation, just as in the first book--and their artistic visions help Rachael immeasurably.

Sticks & Stones is an excellent follow-up to Widows & Orphans. Book three, Days & Hours, is scheduled for a September 2007 publication.
 
Compelling!  Mar 9, 2007
When lawyer Rachael Flynn receives an anonymous letter telling her a body will soon be discovered she can't begin to imagine the journey ahead of her. An excavation uncovers the body of a teenage boy buried more than twenty years earlier and Rachael feels compelled to uncover the truth behind the crime. With the help of Sgt Will Pendleton and the artistic skills of her husband Trace and his talented and eclectic friends, Rachael soon discovers that fear is a powerful motivator and sadly, time does not heal all wounds.

Susan Meissner has excelled in every way with Sticks & Stones, the second Rachael Flynn mystery. The mystery is powerful and compelling and the characterisation spot on. The emotions of her characters are so tangible that at times it is exquisitely painful to read. I was captivated by Rachael and Trace as they worked through the tension Rachael's desire for truth, and the risks she takes, creates in their marriage. Fig, Sid and Brick are back adding flavour to the story with their artistry once again shedding light on the crime scene. The lifelong impact bullying can have on children is clearly portrayed and yet Susan weaves hope and the healing it can bring into this thought-provoking and beautifully written story that will absorb you from beginning to end.
 
Wonderful Read  Mar 5, 2007
Susan Meissner's strength is making characters so real, you root for them as you welcome them into your life. Sticks and Stones is no different. Plagued by an unsigned letter about the disappearance of a bully from twenty years prior, Rachael Flynn finds herself caught up in a gently-unfolding mystery of truth, fear, and childhood vigilance. Through the pages, find yourself enthralled, challenged, and uplifted.

 
Childhood Bullying Has Long-Reaching Consequences  Feb 24, 2007
STICKS AND STONES is another fantastic, dramatic, memorable novel by Susan Meissner, who deals with the unpleasant theme of "bullying," and involves the heart of the reader in the lives of a neighborhood of children, whose lives were scarred forever by the cruelty of an emotionally-disturbed child. Meissner has a unique creativity that causes the reader to experience the pathos of her characters. A book every parent with young children should read.
