    This is a modern day romance but it starts off feeling like the 1930s with a grand house and titled family, a strange man with amnesia, do gooders, smuggling and the legends of Cornish wreckers and caves Question why does nobody discuss accents Or think about them A man has near total amnesia and nobody says, By your accent you re Cornish, or from Devon, or from Essex or Glasgow, say Nobody pinpoints his social class by the way he holds a knife and fork, or asks which football team he sup This is a modern day romance but it starts off feeling like the 1930s with a grand house and titled family, a strange man with amnesia, do gooders, smuggling and the legends of Cornish wreckers and caves Question why does nobody discuss accents Or think about them A man has near total amnesia and nobody says, By your accent you re Cornish, or from Devon, or from Essex or Glasgow, say Nobody pinpoints his social class by the way he holds a knife and fork, or asks which football team he supports I don t like the way that a young woman has taken up with a hugely indebted gambler and nobody tells her to see sense and dump him Whether or not he is being followed by criminals, he is the last person she should be seeing We move out to the islands off the coast and there are many nice descriptions, accounts of the daily school run by boat etc and storms Hard work isn t easy I don t like the way the protagonist keeps saying she needs to find out if she still loves the ex husband who left her for the first of two other women many years ago No, she doesn t she should get on with her own life Why is this capable woman so needy I don t like the assumption by the pleasant islanders that a rambling old man, probably nutty from inbreeding, is just a character, and his possibly having murdered someone, and definitely having kept a body unburied and hidden from a coroner and relatives, must be okay because he s one of us The protagonist goes along with this unthinkingly She doesn t say she feels obliged to because otherwise the locals won t like her She says nobody must think badly of the nutty old man Why She barely knows him Good for scenery and atmosphere story unconvincing Except that we can see why the island population keeps dwindling This is an unbiased review

    This is the last book of my reading journey in Tenerife from the lending library at Westhaven Bay What I liked most about all the books were the strong women characters although some were weak in typical areas , and the British flavor of them all since they were all authors from there and only one man author Interceptor by Cameron Addicott I chose this book because my cousin Marleen had chosen a book in Dutch with Island in the title It sounds like all I did was read since I pretty much This is the last book of my reading journey in Tenerife from the lending library at Westhaven Bay What I liked most about all the books were the strong women characters although some were weak in typical areas , and the British flavor of them all since they were all authors from there and only one man author Interceptor by Cameron Addicott I chose this book because my cousin Marleen had chosen a book in Dutch with Island in the title It sounds like all I did was read since I pretty much devoured 7 books in 15 days, but we did lots of sightseeing too, and I started a book about the history of the Canary Islands also I also read the tourist book about El Teide, the volcano on the island of Tenerife

    A book from my mum I ve read it and I don t want it back when you ve read it not exactly glowing praise What kept me reading was the descriptions of island life I love islands, particularly windswept ones and this book has plenty of those At times I felt the story didn t quite flow the characters seemed to change their minds from one sentence to the the next but it s been an undemanding read during a stressful, wet school holiday week.

    I enjoyed reading this book There were some interesting, likable characters, and I was drawn in to see how things would turn out for them The plot seemed like it was something different, but it turned out to be a bit formulaic, inconsistent, and yet repetitious It was a quick, light read, but not a book I ll read a second time.
