    This is Ms. Mountford's first book and she chose an interesting local legend upon which to build it. She also clearly knows her geography and history of the Outer Banks Islands. The narrative is a nice interweaving of events from 250 years ago and today and there are surprises in the mystery part. The strengths lie in the chapters about the legend, which are well written and leave just enough unanswered to make you want a bit more. The present-day narrative is adequately written. Not having read any romance novels in many years, I'm unfamiliar with the genre but parts of this novel read like lusty romance novel descriptions and sometimes border on the silly. Overall, the story is a decent yarn that does not ask too much of the reader while giving a good story with enough twists and characters to keep it interesting to the end.

    This was recommended to me by a bookstore owner on Hatteras, before she found out I worked for the publisher. It's a combination ghost story, romance and mystery; three genres I generally avoid but really enjoyed in this instance. It gets bonus points for taking place at Portsmouth, the abandoned village on the island just south of Ocracoke, a place I've never been to but always wondered about.

    Interesting light mystery set on Portsmith Island, a barrier island off the coast of North Carolina. Incorporates a folk tale of the seafaring people who first settled on the island, along with a modern-day mystery.

    Since I live about 30 mins from the Outer Banks, I always enjoy reading about the area, whether it's Fiction or Nonfiction. This book was so enjoyable! Part mystery, part history, part paranormal, and all of this during an oncoming hurricane! I'll be looking for more books by this author!

    Ghosts, murder, and romance. What more can you ask for on a bleak early winter day.
