Linda Hall's Fog Point series revolves around whale-watching tour guide Jake Rikker and his widowed partner, May. They're enlisted to help Elise St. Dennis, an acclaimed jewelry designer who has been corresponding with a prison inmate named Wesley Stoller, who is released and is believed to be stalking her. Jake develops feelings for Elise, despite her erratic behavior (she refuses to allow the police to be involved). May suspects some locals might be involved (the ne'er-do-well Featherjohn fami ...more
Well, I guess I liked the writing and the action till about 2/3 thru the book. Then I felt the author got confused. The ending was terrible: the "villian" was framed, the most interesting and sinister character was still unknown by the main characters, I wasn't sure who the main characters really were, and subplots had gotten mixed up in the main plot for no good reason.
Too bad. The first 2/3 really showed the author could build suspense and action.
This took me a while to read only because life through us into a loop when my mom got sick and came to live with us on hospice. When my mom past it took me awhile to pick it up again but when I did it was like I never put it down. I loved the ending because it makes you feel like there is more out there. It's not the kind of ending that you feel left out there hanging. I am now reading the second book in the series and am already enjoying that.
The last one-hundred pages are the best. There seemed to be a lot of distracting sub-stories...almost like the author wanted to throw the reader off. Instead they were just annoying and made the book longer than necessary.
Starts off well, with lots of twists and turns that keeps you guessing ... then about 3 chapters from the end all is revealed in such a way that it feels like an anti-climax with a dissappointing ending.
I enjoyed this book and it was a really quick read. The "heroine" was a bit needy for my taste but all in all I would recommend it. Interesting characters and nice story location.

Private detective finds himself hired by a woman who isn't telling him the whole story. But in the end this attempt at small town noir ends up a little dumb.

I love me a good mystery. I really enjoyed how the characters were not all they seemed to be. I can't wait to read the sequel.
Really good. I love mysteries. And Linda Hall is a very good writer. I enjoy her style a lot.
Not a bad book, but I thought it was very predictable. I also wan't a big fan of the characters.
slow to develop characters and plot; good mystery; not very Christian
Enjoyed this mystery - veyr well done setting and characters.

Rather juvenile. Usually love her books.
Quick read...good for get away reading....
