Product Description

Product Description

Intrepid investigative journalist Scout Davis has given herself a holiday, but when Hermione Longfellow accosts her in the supermarket, she stops to listen.

Most people in Byron Bay are aware of the eccentric Anemone sisters. Always dressed in black, they rarely leave their home nestled in the hills. When Hermione asks Scout to track down her sister Nemony's AWOL husband, believed to have died at sea thirty years ago but recently popped up again on the Great Barrier Reef, Scout jumps at the opportunity.

Another source of intrigue falls close to home when Scout's sister Harper despairs over her husband's odd behaviour. And if that wasn't enough, Scout's journalist boyfriend is finally coming home from Afghanistan. Trouble is, Scout thinks she may be falling in love with irresistible local cop Rafe - who coincidentally is also Toby's best friend...

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent writer of Australian fiction 10 Jun 2013

I loved it. I read her previous book which sent me to the kindle to find this one. She writes very well and her style is reminiscent of Kerry Greenwood, in that she paints an intimate picture of the residents in Byron Bay and her family. The book itself is enjoyably slow paced while still keeping the reader's interest. I highly recommend it and look forward to her next one.

A ripping yarn, fast paced, girls in charge. Men in story as secondary characters. Life went on hold. Loved it.

I found it an easy read - rollicking good fun. As I didn't feel like reading anything too challenging at the time, it was just what I needed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Follow Up 1 Jan 2014

This is the second in a series I would happily follow. The setting and references are definitely Australian without being too alienating for overseas readers ( and if they were, why should we care?). The supporting characters are rounded and we care about the subplots. In fact, in the first part of the book, these are more interesting than the main plot which takes a little while to get going. Of course, it has a few of the cliches that abound in this genre, heroines stumbling around in the dark, ignoring the bleeding obvious etc but I enjoyed it none of the less. It loses a star though, for having a crack investigative journalist delete emails marked URGENT from a member of the police, at a crucial time, because she is a bit miffed with him! I can suspend belief to a certain degree but...........
