Robin B. reviewed Breaker's Reef (Cape Refuge, Bk 4) on
I have loved every book of Terri Blackstocks that I have read. Breaker's Reef is no exception. She has an incredible gift of character development and storytelling that leaves you hanging onto the edge of your seat. I spent the whole book thinking that I had figured how who done it only to find that I was completely wrong. The only down side is that there is not another book in this series.
