I'm glad that 'The Secret of Helena's Bay' by Sally Quilford is a novella rather than a novel which can, technically, be read at one sitting. The reason being that you won't want to put it (or your Kindle!) down until you've read the last, satisfying word!

I enjoyed this pocket novel. A little bit of suspense, danger and mystery, with romance wrapped around it, and a touch of humour thrown in.

Great size story for a quick read on the Kindle too.
