Stained glass artist Callie Davis is in desperate need of a vacation. Burnt out and on the edge of a nervous breakdown, she’s fleeing the pressures of her career and is taking refuge on Massachusetts’ tiny Carter Island. Callie yearns for long, lazy days and pretty walks on the beach—blessed solitude and an escape from the complications of her life. Then she bumps into gorgeous Nate Carter and everything changes.
Sheriff Nathan Carter couldn’t be happier now that the height of the summer season has finally come and gone. After four endless months, tourists have packed their bags and headed for the mainland. The quiet days of autumn are about to befall the town—the way Nate and his fellow Sandersonians like it best.
But nothing ends up quite the way Nate expects when he meets the beautiful blonde with the big blue eyes. Callie’s pretty smiles hide secrets—deep, dark mysteries that could cost them both their lives if they continue digging into the past and cross a killer’s path.
Phew; it’s a good thing that I had a slow work day today – I freaking completed the whole book during my 8 hours at work – and that was in the midst of doing paperwork at work! Good thing I didn’t have a case today – I wouldn’t have been able to give it my full attention if there hadn’t been; and I knew that truth once I started the book!
Callie May Davis is a renowned artist – famous celebrity in her own right but has been on a burnt out since a long time – so heads off to an island; Carter Island that has called out to her as well for a long time.
Sheriff Nate Carter is the Sheriff of the small county that Callie has decided to make her home for a while – he is also the son of a family that has resided on the island for centuries.
Carter Island gives off the vibe of a quaint little town, a friendly place where everyone knows each other’s names – and I fell in love with it! There were so many amazing characters that make the foundation of this plot!
But most of all, I fell in love with Callie and Nate – I adored the fact that a part of the book was devoted to Callie and Nate, it was devoted them finding their way to each other and then finding their foothold in a relationship together; and even with all the baggage between them, that the author took the time to lay the foundation of their relationship felt good to me as a reader.
Now as for the twist of mystery and suspense – GO IN BLIND! Trust a fellow reader; I didn’t even bother to read the blurb of the book before going in – I didn’t know who the Main Characters were, what actual plot was and what exactly the mystery was – and I can honestly say that it heightened my experience in ways that I wasn’t even sure was possible!
The writing is impeccable – you experience a whole lot of nuances that I wouldn’t have if the writing hadn’t flowed the way it. I loved the characters & the plot, but it was the writing that made sure that I would be keeping an eye out for the next book in this series.
Yes, there were a few issues, some minor things that were overlooked; but since they were minor, it didn’t pinch me or even spoil the experience of this book!
“There’s something about you that makes sense.”
