"Perfect stocking fillers...When creating her setting, writer Swan has paid exquisite attention to detail - you can almost smell the surf and feel the salty breeze. Similarly, her characters have been tenderly crafted, with very real mannerisms and emotions. The plot if intriguing throughout and our tears were welling before we'd even finished the prologue...Hide indoors with a glass of mulled wine and lose yourself in this instead" --Four star review in Heat
