This is the last book of my reading journey in Tenerife from the lending library at Westhaven Bay. What I liked most about all the books were the strong women characters (although some were weak in typical areas), and the British flavor of them all since they were all authors from there (and only one man author - Interceptor by Cameron Addicott).

I chose this book because my cousin Marleen had chosen a book in Dutch with Island in the title. It sounds like all I did was read since I pretty much
A book from my mum ("I've read it and I don't want it back when you've read it!") - not exactly glowing praise. What kept me reading was the descriptions of island life - I love islands, particularly windswept ones and this book has plenty of those. At times I felt the story didn't quite flow - the characters seemed to change their minds from one sentence to the the next but it's been an undemanding read during a stressful, wet school holiday week.
I enjoyed reading this book. There were some interesting, likable characters, and I was drawn in to see how things would turn out for them. The plot seemed like it was something different, but it turned out to be a bit formulaic, inconsistent, and yet repetitious. It was a quick, light read, but not a book I'll read a second time.
