Rating: You Need To Read
Reviewed by: Laura
An unexplained light in the woods beckons Beth toward mystery and murder. Paint, canvas and a peaceful cottage on the Maine coast provide a welcome refuge for Beth LaMonte. A mysterious light intrudes on her peace and leads her to a secret beach where she finds the diary of a girl who disappeared in 1975. Now Beth is on another mission to not only bury her own past, but to put to rest the spirit of Firefly Beach.
I started this book with the expectation that it would be a run-of-the-mill murder mystery. Boy, was I wrong. Ms. Pentermann leads the reader along a very winding road filled with interesting segues and delightful characters. From the starting point of Virginia Point to Bangor and all the small towns in between, the reader will undoubtedly develop a fondness for the New England territory. I found the plot to be compelling and interesting in its entirety. The various minor storylines infuse the main plot with a great flavor. The end of the book neatly ties all the loose ends up and makes for an extremely satisfying read.
