Written with elegance, humor and tenderness, this book's prose is like honey pouring on the pages... The 70's see townies and summer help interacting in a resort in a little town on Lake Michigan, bringing friendships, feuds, hot romance and...an unsolved crime. 34 years later when a body is excavated during renovation work at the resort, every body meets again to help in solving it- leading to more crimes, thick suspense and the rekindling of the hot flame between the two main characters.
Well narrated, the story immediately pulled me in and kept me guessing till the end.
Lots of family values are pouring forth, and praise for the work of the police force in a small city of 4,500 residents.
Very entertaining read. Especially recommended for those who have lived through the 70's.
Nate and Emily certainly have a passionate romance. I think their first encounter with each other is a bit strange. Emily talked about some very personal stuff with a man she hardly knew. Even though I thought this was odd, it is clear right from the start that Nate and Emily have great chemistry, and I looked forward to learning about their epic summer romance. I do think that too much of their relationship revolved around sex. Since they were each other’s first serious relationship, I understand how powerful that physical connection can be, but Nate and Emily spent most of their time together either having sex or talking about it. Even when they were spending time together outside the bedroom, their thoughts still revolved around sex. It became a bit much after a while, and the sexual tension began to lose its impact.
There is also no real explanation as to why Nate and Emily didn’t stay in touch, especially since Emily managed to stay in touch with other people from that summer. After everything they went through, I find it hard to believe that their relationship simply faded into the background. I understand that they would have been trying to make a long distance relationship work in a time before cell phones, email, and the internet, but I would have thought the intensity of their relationship would have warranted more effort on both their parts.
Watching Nate and Emily reconnect was fun and frustrating at the same time. Everyone else in town already knows that they are meant to be together. Nate and Emily never really got over each other and are thrilled at the prospect of reconnecting.Read more ›
Nathan guesses that Peggy McBride, a wild child who disappeared from town, is the deceased, and he hopes that Emily, now running a business in another town, can come back and help him figure out what happened. However Emily, though willing to help, is less inclined to rekindle their youthful romance, and by drawing her back Nathan has unwillingly placed her in danger as the killer has not gone far.
The story addresses serious issues such as rape and teen pregnancy, but murder doesn't occur over trivial matters. I liked the character development and tension in both eras (we see the past events in flashback) and I am sure that someone who actually worked or stayed in a resort of the type described might give it a better rating.

It was a good story, just moved too slow. Jumping back and forth from 34 years ago to the present added to the frustration.Published 22 months ago by Amazon Customer
