The story of Megan and Aiden, a dog, a hurricane and an old FBI case that is reopened helped me pass a warm muggy night. They live in Citrus Beach, Florida and are buckling down for a hurricane to hit. Luckily all they got was some rain and wind. The worst hit area was Lady Fish Bay, a few hours away.
When checking out the area after the storm a neighbor asks if Megan could check on her property up in Lady Fish Bay. She takes a group of friends and her dog, Barney, and heads that way. What they find surprises them—family pictures, old knick-knacks and personal items are scattered all over the beach. They decide to collect them all and find the owners.
Barney finds an old wooden box buried in the sand and thus the mystery begins. I won’t go into all the details, buy the book yourself and read how this box leads a family to reunite and why the FBI gets involved.
The first few chapters of the book were slow as all the characters were introduced. It was hard to keep them all straight. I also thought the dialogue throughout the book was forced and way too long. It also made the reading hard. Once the hurricane leaves and the box is found the story picks up steam and I was turning pages rather fast.
All in all, I enjoyed this book. The characters seemed real to me and the plot was one that probably could actually happen. Nice job, Victoria LK Williams.
that added little to the plot line. For this I am thankful. There were a few misspelled words that should have been caught but compared to the first book it's almost not worth mentioning. I did notice that there were times when autocorrect must have reared its head and changed a word! Again, this should have been caught by an editor.
The story itself was ok. There were no big plot twists or big surprises....well, maybe one. This is a clean read with no sex or offensive language. Now I'm off to read the 3rd installment and see what shenanigans this group gets up to next!
