Nice balance of intrigue, mystery, and romance all set in the historically rich South Carolina! JoAnn Ross has officially been added to my list of favorite authors.
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
This is a story about a serial killer living on a small island somewhere in the South where a young woman named Sabrina returns to handle her inheritance after her grandmother's death. She becomes reacquainted with an ex-navy seal who grew up on the island and knew Sabrina from her childhood visits with her grandmother. A romance blossoms.
The writing mechanics were slightly above average; but, I am not fan of serial killer plots, so someone who is entertained by this type of story might rate this higher. I did not predict the ending, which was refreshing. The author did a nice job weaving the romance thread with the serial killer thread. There were a couple of other shorter threads as well, which worked well in keeping my interest.
The reader did a fine job - excellent with Southern accents. It was nice to have a competent reader.
The story is well written and has a good twist at the end. The lead male character is yummy. Narroration was well done. Most of the military references were correct.
