I really liked this WWII set love story that includes intrigue and kept me guessing as to which direction it would take.
Highly recommend and has set me on course to look for more Sarah Jio books!
As other reviewers have mentioned, this book does have many flaws, but despite that, I found myself caught up in the story and ended up reading it in one sitting. Overlook the flaws in the plot and just let yourself be carried along by the story. Quick, enjoyable read.
Trite and mediocre, with too many coincidences neatly tying things together.
Another excellent book by Ms Jio. Well written. Story flows well and is quite interesting. You won't want to put the book down. Good historical background with WWII South Pacific. I liked the characters too.
I absolutely loved this book! It was a heart wrenching, but very touching love story. I'm not a romance reader, but this one worked fine for me. The setting is Bora Bora, so right away I was interested. Add to that, the story of best friends joining the war effort in the Pacific as nurses, a murder, and all the life changing events they experience, and I was hooked.
The writing flowed easily and at a timely pace which is always a plus. There's enough intrigue to keep you wondering, but the murder itself wasn't much of a mystery. I felt there were a couple of weak spots and not quite believeable coincidences, but overall it certainly didn't stop it from being an exceptional read. It's one of those books that evokes a range of different emotions, with an ending that leaves an impression and makes you want to sit and absorb it all for a little while. This book definitely turned out to be as good as the ratings and everyone claimed it to be!
