"Wonderful characters who spout witty dialogue, the luscious South Carolina setting she is famous for, and hefty helpings of the food and manners bred as only the South can breed, make this latest offering from Dot Frank a true gem for lazy summer days.

Even if you're not reading it on the beach, you will smell the salt air and experience the sand between your toes. The author puts you there as she has in her four previous books because she does local color better than most anyone writing today.

But it is the wonderful characters that will stay with you long after the last page is turned." amazon

Another great book. Loved the characters of this book. Abigail is one tough lady, one not to be dealt with lightly. Rebecca is soft in the beginning, but she toughens up and Huey, what can I say, he is a character.

No one writes a better Southern novel about family and complicated relationships. One of her best. I read all her books.

I tried, but never really liked this book. The characters are shallow, predictable and stereotypical. It's very politically correct (to the point of being annoying), but at the same time the "help" are all black ... just didn't like it.

I felt like I was back in Charleston. This is a woman's book. It is not chick-lit, and it is not a romance novel. It is just a nice story about four people. Bring this book to the beach, or take it on a plane. It is just a fun book.

I am a mystery fan, but I liked this book. It takes place in the Low Country on the coast of South Carolina, so the setting was new to me. I liked the characters and the plot, but I felt that all of the main characters were too smart, too beautiful, too rich, too priveleged to be true. You knew that things would work out well for them and they would be redeemed. On the other hand, the villians were too stupid, ignorant, sloppy, etc. It was kind of like a Lifetime TV movie. As I looked at the descriptions of the author's other books, it seemed more of the same on a different SC island, so I passed on them. It's a good "quick read" for the beach or an airplane ride, so enjoy it for what it is.
