New Carol Goodman: ARCADIA FALLS

http://www.amazon.com/Arcadia-Falls-Carol-Goodman/dp/0345497538

Synopsis: For two hundred years, painters, poets and musicians have come to the Catskill Mountain village of Arcadia Falls to escape the pressures of modern life and pursue their artistic visions, and Arcadia College was founded with a mission to nurture young artists and writers. When Meg Rosenthal gets an offer to teach at Arcadia College, it seems a godsend - an escape from a life that's fallen apart. She hopes, too, that Arcadia Falls will be a place where she and her daughter Sally can find some peace and reconciliation. But even though Arcadia Falls proves to be even more beautiful then Meg imagined, it is hardly peaceful. Soon she begins to realize that the public story behind the school conceals deceit, betrayal, and perhaps even murder. As Meg struggles to reconcile the choices she's made in her own life, she begins to fear that by coming to Arcadia Falls she's put herself and her daughter in danger.

Thoughts: OK, it sounds like a revisit of the locale of GHOST ORCHID with the general drive of LAKE OF DEAD LANGUAGES. Not exactly breaking new ground here, but if she can give us a mystery that's pretty much unguessable I'll be happy enough.
