Publisher's Summary

Camilla Stewart's ex-fiancé ripped her off and disappeared, leaving her to care for his eight-year-old son alone. But when she arrives in Pajaro Bay, she finds a village full of cute cottages, quirky characters... and a killer on the loose who's somehow linked to her, the young boy, and the darling little house known as The Honeymoon Cottage.

Surprisingly compelling read

I'm always a bit wary when buying something by a virtually unknown author. Nine times out of ten, I'm disappointed - but books like this one inspire me to keep taking chances on a new name.

It was lovely! I can hardly wait for the next one to come out. Great job Barbara! Write faster!

Childish prose read by a 10 year old like narrator

I needed a break from the fast paced thrillers I had been listening to and thought this romantic "cozy" would do the trick. The trick is how this author got past the self published e-book stage. How did this narrator get promoted to reading adult lit instead of the kiddie lit to which she is obviously more suited? Golly, gosh, gee whiz, I, much like the dim heroine, cannot figure it out.

This might be a spoiler alert, if I had gotten past the half way point in the story, which I didn't. I couldn't. I can tell how it's going to turn out and I don't care. The main character is a 24 year old female accredited accountant, but hey, she has papers and everything, as another character literally asks her midway through the story - what is she, a pedigree dog? papers? really? Well, she uses her "papers" to get hired by a super duper high tech company but she is so dumb that she a) meets and gets engaged to a average nice guy that she has known less than 8 weeks, she also adopts his 8 year old child within this same time frame and before the actual wedding ever takes place (lawyers and courts must work really fast in No. California); b) has the responsibility for transferring million dollar funds after only working there for a few weeks but can't figure out how her embezzler/fiance got the codes to access the money; c) doesn't question anything at all when Mr. Average buys her a valuable house as well as an expensive engagement ring, and d) refuses to admit the possibility that her on-the-lam ex, who can only be identified by her and her adopted child, is out there trying to kill her and his son, even after two (you're an accountant, honey, count 'em) possibly fatal "accidents" occur.

When the local, hunky, but guilt ridden sheriff, to whom she has an immediate, intense connection and which is, of course, mutual, tries to point out the apparent dangers, she replies, "I'm not an idiot." a phrase which she repeats whenever anyone with half a brain, tries to point out any salient facts to her. She isn't convincing me. Anyone who can go through all these feelings and experiences in 2 months time and NOT question anything is an idiot, as a matter of fact, I think there is a picture of our girl in the dictionary's definition of the word.

I am an accounting mgr, which really makes this knuckle head so insulting a character to me as both a career person and a female. The literary world could do with one less idiot masquerading as a real person instead of a cardboard cutout cutie. I don't mind light-hearted mysteries, but light-headed authors aggravate me.
