When I picked this up I had no idea that it was part of a series and now have to go back and read the first two. Island of Deceit is sort of a hybrid romance/mystery with action and love throughout.

I started reading this book unaware that it the 3rd in a series. Not enough back ground was given for someone who had not read the other books. Regardless of that and that the history of the golden bowl was not given- just the line that it had a history, I still found the story very compelling. Lots of twists turns and confusion. Since the library does not have the pervious books, I'm reading the next in the series with the hope that there will be more explanations to be found there.

This is an entertaining read about family, connections, and a missing heirloom. Throw in a little romance with the murders as the mystery gets a little more complicated.
This is my fav book in this series.

Even as a child Candice Poarch was a dreamer and created scenes in her mind. She quickly fell in love with writing stories centered around families and romance. The quest for love is universal, she says. Being familiar with rural Virginia, she portrays a sense of community and mutual support in her novels, many of which are set in small-town America.

Candice grew up in Stony Creek, Virginia, south
