Millie West’s book The Cast Net is a thought-provoking look into the deep South.
Five out of five stars!!: I enjoyed [the] book very much. The descriptive scenes of the South Carolina Lowcountry were wonderful.
Mills Taylor leads a very busy life , when she gets a chance to work with a foundation that provides scholarships in a sleepy town near Charleston, she jumps at the chance. She really likes her new boss Cooper Heath and the community seems full of interesting people. But when Heath’s wife disappears, that same community begins to believe that he had something to do with her disappearance. Mills is unsure what to believe and she becomes aware that this quiet little town has some serious secrets. West does a beautiful job at capturing the lowcountry, the scenery takes pride of place, but the characters and story line are also stellar.

The Cast Net first attracted me by its cover with an image of grassy fields or marshes. The excerpt was interesting enough, and I picked up yet another book from a hitherto unknown author. The Cast Net has a good story at its heart, and the book is eventful and anecdotal enough to keep you turning pages.
