Silken Sands

It sounds too good to be true—housesitting for three months, by herself, on a small island off the coast of Maine. Associate professor Cynthia Blake couldn’t ask for a better place to finish her dissertation. No phone. No television. No distractions. At least, that’s what she thinks—until she meets Jonathan Roaman. The tall, tanned, impossibly

It's been quite a few years since I've read a book by Barbara Delinksy, but I remembered really like the books that I had read by her. And since I was in between books for my book club and Silken Sands was a shorter book, I decided to give it a go.
Thankfully it was a shorter book! Maybe I didn't like it as much since it was written in the '80s and the style reflected it. Or maybe reading books like "Fifty Shades" and the "Crossfire" series has severely affected my opinion of what a good romance

Strange character

The story needed to be developed a little better and I wasn't a fan of the violent tendencies of Jonathan.

best I can give this book is 2 stars - I found both main character quite annoying.
Krista kept me reading, but I wouldn't read it again, nor would I "highly" recommend it to anyone. Skip it unless you've got nothing else to read.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
