4.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT for a beach vacation!, 18 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Seal Island (Mass Market Paperback)
Cecilia "Cecil" Hargrave inherits a beachfront house and a small business on glorious Seal Island in Maine. Since Cecil has just been laid off from work and lost her apartment, she decides to spend the summer on Seal Island to relax a bit and figure out what she will do with her life. Cecil makes new friends and slips into the local town life almost seamlessly. She also becomes friends with three very different men.
Richard is the editor of the local paper. He is patient, steady, and dependable. Tom is a lobsterman with the sea in his blood and has a mysterious part time job that pays the bills. His pragmatic look at life keeps Cecil guessing as to just what will happen next. Then there is Ronan who is shy about approaching Cecil as friends, and later as more, but with a spontaneous approach at life that attracts her.
During her summer afternoons Cecil spends time on the shore line where she makes friends with a special seal named Ragnarok. Between Cecil's new friends, her business, and Ragnarok, her days are carefree and filled with warmth. But when night falls, Cecil is torn between the men.
**** This is the debut novel of author Kate Brallier, and what an excellent one it is! It is larger than most books now-a-days, but only because the author inserts descriptive backgrounds of the characters and the town so that readers find themselves submerged into the life on Seal Island. Most of the story reads like a contemporary romance with some danger thrown in for spice. However, be advised that there is some supernatural or mystical sections as well. This one is the PERFECT read during a beach vacation! ****
