    Good story

    This was a nice story to read. Just over 100 pages and not one page wasted. The story had a nice flow to it which made it easy and enjoyable to read. I give it only 4 stars because while a good story, the beach scene could have been worked a little better, but still two thumbs up.

    Footsteps

    I really enjoyed the story. The main character had such interesting thoughts upon reading up on the local newspapers. The locale was done so well and certainly held my attention. I recommend it for a vacation reading to enjoy.
