I’ve heard many great reviews about Chanel Cleeton’s novel and was super excited to read her newly released novel. Loved the idea of the plot, great location. But the characters just didn’t fully catch my attention. The only personage I liked was Helen. Simple ad good-hearted girl. I wish Elizabeth and Mirta’s stories were more fascinating. Nevertheless, the story is perfect for a beach read this hot summer. Thank you NetGalley and Berkley Publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
