“The author’s sharp observations and snappy dialogue are a joy to read. The characters are sketched well with interesting backstories. Danny sparkles in any scene he’s in. I felt like I was transported to the rustic, fishing village of Perranstone. The crackling dialogue highlights this interesting tale of long-held secrets.” (OnlineBookClub.org)
