I thoroughly enjoyed the first Camino Island novel with its focus on a stolen F. Scott Fitzgerald original manuscript. There were interesting characters, a charming location and plenty of tidbits of information about publishing and rare literary manuscripts. I was thrilled to find a new novel was coming out set on the same fictional Camino Island. What a disappointment. Bruce and his bookstore are back, the same characters make brief appearances but the novel is lifeless. Who killed a writer during a massive hurricane and why? I couldn't care less it was so pointless and dull. There wasn't even any romance here. A pointless waste of my time. Don't waste your time and money on this pointless garbage.
