This was a holiday romance gone wrong. Or was it something more nefarious than that? Author Beverley Harvey’s first attempt in a thriller was fun, filled me with a gnawing sense of curiosity to know what would happen next.
Three ladies, in their forties, went on a holiday where they met Harvey, the godson of a neighbor back home, and one of them hooked up with him. The story progressed with the other two women being utterly suspicious of his motives until a mind-boggling finale revealed the truth.
The book was fun in most parts, though the midsection meandered quite a bit. The ladies seemed to hit it off with each other. I liked their emerging friendship as they enjoyed their days in soaking up the sun.
The antagonist kept me on my toes; he was a smooth operator filled with charm and knew how to reel the fish in. The truth was slowly revealed to the reader in the mid section. I kept hoping the ladies got to see it too. Soon.
What stole the show for me was the last couple of chapters. They soothed my need for vengeance and sunk it to the unseen depths. Pun intended. You’ve got to read the book to understand the line.
Another entertaining way to spend my lazy afternoon.
