When he gets a chance to interview an American factory owner, Miss Amanda Keane, and prove that American factories are ran just as bad, he jumps on it, even if it means attending a holiday house party.

This was a short story but it was a full story, with well drawn out characters and a full plot. I really liked Amanda’s character. She was strong and had a purpose. I loved how she kept proving Stephen wrong. Great story. I highly recommend.

I had a lot of mixed feelings concerning this book. It was a quick reads with a fast pace. But I couldn’t seem to connect with Sunnie. I found this frustrated me at times also. The bad guys seemed like amateurs to me and yet the cops couldn’t solve the case. I would have liked more background on Sunnie But I did enjoy the book somewhat and really liked the twists.

But the best thing in Edna’s world was her family- her parents and her younger sister Kelsey.   Edna was going to the island by seaplane and the plane was being flown by Aaron Gabriel. Edna was not really  adventurous and firmly believed in schedules. Edna liked order an predictability and situations she could control.   . Edna’s mom was fragile after a double mastectomy followed by chemotherapy and radiation and she desperately wanted to see her sister Lucy again. Edna and Ray had broke up after four years so to say it had been a hell of a year ….. Edna found she was attracted to Aaron. Until a year ago Edna had  been happy and uncomplicated. Edna had her family , her terrific job, and Ray. But then her grandmother died, her mother was diagnosed with cancer, and then Ray and Edna had broken up.

Lucy had come to Destiny Island in the 1960’s to join a commune with her boyfriend.

I liked this story but it had a few things that bothered me. However I did feel it was well written and had a good plot. At times the story dragged for me and was hard to keep my attention on the story. For the most part I thought had a believable aspect to it.  I thought Aaron was a little too pushy at first as he knew from talking to Edna she had been through a lot in the last year. So i liked the characters and the ins and outs to a point but I still had mixed feelings on this book. But I do wish I could have rated it a 3.5.
