I grew up in a small town where the families have been there for generations. While my hometown is considerably larger than the island in this story, much of the community dynamics are the same. I can fully relate to the struggle between those who want to keep the close-knit quaintness of their town and those who want to catch up with the rest of the world by allowing major changes, even if that meant selling out their history and values.
The struggles over inheritance and relationship discoveries were also familiar to me. We see in the story that greed—whether over an inheritance or profiteering—causes people to say and do things contrary to their basic nature. Colleen expertly developed and revealed those in her characters making them seem more biographical than fiction.
Perhaps I appreciated most the pace Colleen kept the tension throughout the story. Plus, it worked out in very natural ways. Action adventures have me saying, “Really?” The protagonists in those have to be superheroes to be able to be shot, stabbed, maimed, and nearly on their last breath when they (not so surprisingly) spring back to full strength and annihilate their adversary. Not so with this book. Even the most gripping scene leaves you saying, “Yes, that could happen.” Colleen keeps it real for her readers. Thumbs up!
Here are an example of 3.
1. The Outer Banks does not have any caves. The islands are made up of sand dunes.
2. The Coast Guard helicopter would not be based on this island. It would have been based at the Coast Guard Air Station in Elizabeth City, NC. It would not have been practical for Alec to live on the island and go to Elizabeth City for duty.
3. A house or Inn on any of these islands would not have a basement. An attic yes...basement NO.
I could go on but I won't.
I am sure Ms. Coble is a good author but a little research would have saved this book for me.
