The Monsters of Templeton; Lauren Groff

A huge loch ness type monster washes up on shore of a small upstate New York town as a woman returns to the town from living in California.  The woman investigates her past history going back many generations and the novel goes back and forth between present and the past during her ancestors.  Interesting story, but it took me forever to read bouncing back and forth between other books I’ve been reading.  Unfortuantely not as good as Groff’s Arcadia that I really liked.
