I don't normally read a lot of romance, but from the first paragraph to the last, I was hooked and didn't want to put the book down. The characters are real and likable, and their struggles are relevant and engaging. This book talks about important themes not often dealt with directly, and it does so with great sensitivity and skill. I didn't want this book to end.
I can really appreciate a storyline in which I am unable, as a reader, to predict exactly what is going to happen next. This is far from a typical romance novel, with twists and turns that will have your jaw-dropping and your empathy muscles working as you connect with the characters and want to see them succeed. Can't wait for the next book, this one left me decidedly hoping (pun intended) for more!
A great read that has it all. A beautiful beach, a mysterious women, a horrific crime, and the capacity of the human heart to love despite tragedy.
