I love the Maggie O'Dell series, it's one of my personal favorites. I like Maggie's character, I love the profiling aspects to these books. But this one was a little bit of a disappointment to me. I had a major issue with how it was written: Maggie seemed to me to be a secondary character in this book. She's the main character, she needs to be portrayed as the main character! For whatever reason, Ms. Kava kept jumping back and forth with the other characters leading the story, rather than Maggie. I like Maggie's character, I was disappointed that she seemed to have such a small role in this particular book. Now, that's not to say that I didn't enjoy the book, because I did. But, I only gave it a 4 star rating because of Maggie's character having what seemed to me like such a minor role.
I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it. Alex Kava has covered a subject I wasn't even aware of,
and has done it in suspense of a hurricane. She is one
of my favorite authors.
