Not a deep book , unless you include scuba diving. ( haha )
The characters pretty well developed and felt like people I would know and hang around with or go on a boat ride with.
I am torn between saying the author gives too many mundane details of the main characters' daily life, and actually kind of liking that aspect.
Some details of the real estate laws were boring me but pertinent to story I guess.
And all those details about the characters absolutely ring true.
I like the fact that they are not people I would never conceive of in my world , but everyday people with flaws and normal thinking & reactions to events.
Other likeable things are the location and not only is my family familiar with most of the places mentioned in the book but I wrote to the author and he replied about it.
He knows the area well.
I recommend the book ; it was a brief light escape from my own life.
Oh and though murder is involved it is not a typical slasher /gory type of thing. Hope that is not considered a spoiler.
