I simply could not put this book down. It is a fast-paced story and does not become boring as some mysteries can. You know just enough about the characters and their past to understand their present. The story keeps you guessing at every twist and turn, and you think you know who did it but you find out at the next chapter that you did not. I would love to read more by this author. By the way this story also has a little bit of paranormal.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I Loved It!
What a great book! The meat of the story–a serial killer is terrorizing beautiful Anna Maria Island in Florida–is brilliantly seasoned with hints of the heroine’s troubled past and a touch of romance with the equally troubled police detective on the case. As side dishes, we are served a host of interesting characters and lots of local color. Then a hurricane comes along to violently stir the ingredients. I particularly liked the way the paranormal elements were handled. There are enough hints about Anne’s ‘gift’ to let the reader know this is more than just a good mystery. However, the paranormal aspects of the story never dominate the very human drama that is unfolding. And Anne’s own reluctance to embrace her fate is presented so realistically–her denial is neither exaggerated nor too easily overcome–that it makes her gift quite believable. The ending is satisfying but also whets the appetite for more. I hope we’ll be hearing from Anne Serafini again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
