Publisher's Summary

As a globe-trotting freelance photographer based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Lori Finning has seen just about everything. But when she lands an assignment on the barren, snow-swept island of Newfoundland, she finds herself in harsh and unfamiliar territory.

During the long, dreary winters in the isolated fishing community of Stormy Cove, gossiping is the primary pastime. So Lori is surprised when she learns of a crime the locals have spent twenty years not talking about: the strange, unsolved murder of a teenage girl. As she delves deeper into the village's past, she'll discover dark family secrets, unexplained crimes, and an undeniable attraction to Noah, a taciturn local fisherman who just might hold all the answers.

Was a slow start but picked up

It took me a couple of chapters to be drawn in. I almost gave up. I am glad I didn't. Characters and story were easy to follow.

Good Mystery

Bernadette Calonego does a good job of tying up all loose ends. She also does well at describing the scenery and setting the mood.

Fantastic story with great narration!

I really enjoyed this book! Mysteries are my favorite and I was pleased the storyline in this book kept me guessing. The author did a fabulous job describing the landscape and brings the reader into the community! The narrator was an excellent choice for the book and captured the main character perfectly. I will look for more books from both the author and the narrator.

Had me guessing

I enjoyed the characters and the story line. I was guessing all the way through as to who did what and I usually figure a plot out before the end of the book. I wish the ending were more developed. It seemed the book just ended and while the plot was wrapped up something just felt wrong to me. Like it ended abruptly. Loved reading about life in Newfoundland and the performance was good

If you need help sleeping this is the book for you

This book is dull, plan and simple. Kept listening think it must get better, but it was just boring from start to finish. The main female character is really annoying as well and really started to grate on me by about halfway through the story. Narrator is okay but not great - are Newfoundlander's supposed to sound Irish? All in all it's not great and I really wish I hadn't wasted a credit on it.
