Summary

Mitch is on a last-ditch drive to save his career with the Scottish Institute of Archaeology after his ex-lover Lewis stole his research into the legendary Pictish saints. Mystical pre-Celtic statues are hidden somewhere on mist-wreathed Dove Island. Now Mitch is tearing out to the coast in the hope of reaching the saints before his treacherous ex can stake a claim. At his side is his devoted assistant, Owen. Owen adores Mitch, but he's the quiet, loyal type. Despite himself, Mitch is still dazzled by memories of flamboyant Lewis - and in danger of destroying his newfound happiness with Owen. As the race for the saints intensifies, Mitch is losing perspective. Will he learn how to appreciate the love of a good man before he plunges himself and Owen too far into the deadly mysteries of Dove Island?

Nice story

This was a nice story, not a lot in depth because of its length, but pretty good.
The affect of the narrator probably made it less appealing. I think his voice would be great for certain stories, but not this one. It made the characters feel older and flatter than they were meant to be. His voice sounds like an old fisherman no stranger to drink and smoke, good for some stories, not others.

Not Harper’s best

“Sunbeam” “bouncing like a cork”. Both used in other novels. As a fan of her work this unfortunately appeared to be a phone in. There was a disconnect with the images and voice of narrator. Tim Gilbert is fine but images used for promotion don’t fit. Character development - I found compassion for none. I do look forward to better stories because Harper does them.- Seven Summer Nights and Brothers of the North Sea.

Cute, but not great

I had a hard time caring about most of the people in this story. They redemed themselves a bit at the end, but it wasn't great. Not a total waste of time, but you can do better. Maybe if there were more to the story and the characters were developed a bit more, I might have liked it better.
