What I loved: I did like the setting (close to turn of the 19th century and primarily in Bridal Veil Island, a fictional island near a real to life place called Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia, I believe). I did like most of the characters and felt they were relatively well developed, with the exception of a few.
What I didn't like so much: Overall, I thought that the plot dragged. I felt like it started all right and then took a very long time to get around to the end, which wrapped up quickly. Almost as if the middle was just "filling" to try to cover more pages? I don't know but that's how it felt. Overall it was not a bad read in the least, but I just had trouble getting through the entire middle basically.
I would give this book approximately 3/5 stars.

I borrowed the book image from Amazon.com as I didn't have another to borrow, hence the "click to Look Inside," sorry! And credits to Amazon.
