The island inn, still run by her estranged family, brings back painful memories and the troubled relationships she struggled so hard to escape and forget.

Keep in mind this is from the 1990s
I enjoyed the setting, and the mystery itself was fun, but it's glaringly obvious it's set in the 1990s. I'm amazed at how much female/male characterization in Robert's books has changed over the years. The men in this book almost always force themselves on the women - and the women just melt in their arms and give into their passions... which had me rolling my eyes at points. Puh-lease.
I'd read it was a "surprise" twist ending... can't say I was blown away by it. It was a good plot generally.
She did a good job, but nothing stellar.
Yes - interesting just to see how Roberts' writing has changed, and gotten better over the years.
I wish they'd post the publishing date of the book on the main page. Obviously nothing wrong with reading books written 10-20 years ago - but it helps prepare me for the tone of the book.
