My Review:

This is the first story in the Mischief Bay series by Susan Mallery. To be honest after reading a couple chapters I was a little worried that I was not going to like the book. I think that Susan did a great job of developing the characters and setting the scene, however, I felt initially there were too many stories going on at once. It was hard to keep track of who was who and what story belonged to what because they seemed to be all intertwined. I think that once I got 1/4 of the way in I felt more comfortable deciphering whose story belonged to what character.

In regards to setting of the location and scenery of the book I think Susan did a great job of making you feel like you were part of the town.

Lastly, I think Susan did a great job of creating a emotionally gripping book. She did a great job of showing realistic emotions and responses to the problems that the characters were having. It is always nice when the authors do this because it helps the reader connect to the book if it is more realistic.

I would recommend this book to both fiction and romance readers. It has love, friendship, family and heartbreak. I am very interested to see where Susan takes this series.
