After stepping away from her abusive husband Brad, Juliet Carlson finds herself alone on the beach, enjoying the tranquil sounds of nature at the shore. Her solitude is interrupted by the not-too-distant sounds of music and talking. Juliet grows curious and wanders towards what she believes is a group of partying locals. What she finds will forever change her life.

I often find short stories unsatisfying. This one, however, felt as complete and fulfilling as a full-length novel. The characters are well-developed, the story is perfectly paced and the ending left no questions or qualms. The writing and storytelling are brilliant and kept me thoroughly engrossed.

This is the first book I've read by David Brian, but it certainly won't be the last.

Simon I'm just starting this one today, Angel. It'll be interesting to see how my opinions stack up against other reviews. Nice review by the way! :)

Thank you, Simon. I apologize for my tardy reply--I've only just noticed your comment. I'm glad that you enjoyed the story, too.
