An Island Mystery

This is a very enjoyable novel. The writing is excellent and a wonderful narration that adds to the experience. The mystery revolves around a missing husband but expands into a second strand around three paintings. The atmosphere perfectly captures expat island life, a lifestyle I live with my own family. The pace, twists and turns of the plot are just right. Open a bottle of wine, put your feet up and imagine you're on the island of Lanzarote as you listen to this lovely novel.
