Some readers may find the plot elements to be cliche', but having lived on a small island myself, I thought the author's presentation of the character relationships were believable enough. Small towns are like small islands where everyone knows everyone else's business. As an author myself, I could see why Ms. Allen would indulge in having Jeanne be a writer by trade. However, when Jeanne lands her first gig with a renowned publisher that included a hefty royalty advance I ended up skimming through those plot elements looking forward to finding out what happened to Jeanne's parents and how Allen was going to tie up the loose ends (I already had a good notion as to to the "who done it," but not the motive).
If you like a story with a bit of mystery and a bit of romance set in a lovely location, then you'll enjoy this one.
I hope there are more books coming from this author about this part of the world!
The pace was extremely slow and there was a fair bit of unnecessary details like eating, showering, cleaning, packing etc. The main points of the story got lost in the details of everyday life. I picked the villains in the story very early on.
I really do think the author lost the pace for a mystery in this one as for me it only had a few areas of quiet suspense. I did look up the island of Guernsey after I finished, as there was enough history in the plot for me to be interested in that.
major players. I found myself speed reading through paragraphs of descriptive "bubble wrap", seemingly intended to bulk up the total page count. I think with some serious editing, this book could have real potential.
The idea of a story within a story worked well, and I loved the intrigue Anne created with the letters from Wilhelm to her grandmother. A forbidden love affair, resulting in the equally secret pregnancy ending in sadness as the man she loved dies in tragic circumstances, her baby stillborn...All the time, striving to find out what caused the accident that resulted in the deaths of her parents and free her from the flashbacks.
Anne pulled the story together and tied it all up beautifully with an ending to be proud of. I love a happy ending, and it was inspirational to finish with some of the recipes from the 'proposed bestseller', which,I for one,will be trying out myself in the very near future.
Well done Anne, and I look forward to the sequel, for Jeanne and Nick's wedding and of course the opening of Collette's restaurant.
