"A witty story, rich with metaphor and humor, set in a tropical paradise. It's a sultry read with an ambling pace and some surprise reveals in the end."
"The author's style reminds me of Steinbeck."
"I belong to a bookclub where each member picks a book for the group to read, once a month. Often these books are historical or of some social import. I would pick this book just for the sheer enjoyment of it. It is one I will read again, but I wish it came in paperback. At least then I wouldn't worry about it falling in the bathtub like I do my kindle. :)"
"There’s a sweet, natural pace to the novel until suddenly, and delightfully, it crescendos in dramatic scenes involving a Camaro, high tide, a catamaran, a lighthouse, a naval ship, a bicycle and the drawbridge. When the dust settles, the characters emerge, redirected and renewed – an exceptional ending for an entertaining novel."
