Near Perfect. Excellent Characters.
4.5 out of 5 stars
I love reading books close to each other in a series – though with a series like the Nora Sommer series – it’s not as important. Things aren’t super linear and each story has a nice little arc that has a good ending. But I still like learning about a character and then finding more about them in the next book. I finished Deadly Sommer not too long ago and really freaking enjoyed it. It was the first solo book I read from Harvey but not my first book of his.
I think that Harvey really turned it up to eleven in Stolen Sommer. The way that he made it personal but also made it so much more just really took this from a good story set in a beautiful location to an unforgettable one. As always, the characters jump off of the pages and really stand out – and the situations that Harvey throws them in make it even more interesting. As I said above, add in the location and it’s near perfect. Harvey really is starting to arise as one of my favorite authors and I think that a lot of people are still sleeping on these audiobooks. They’re so much fun to listen to… and even though it’s finally “nice” here in Western New York – it’s not as beautiful or nice as the location of these books.
Kim Bretton does a great job in Stolen Sommer. Her performance is exactly what a book like this needs to make it even better.
A new crime. An old secret. A familiar demon.
When the Cayman Islands police investigate a burglary, Constable Nora Sommer recognizes the victim from a past she’s desperate to forget.
As thefts continue, consuming the department’s focus and resources, Nora can’t shake her newfound knowledge—a guilty man living a happy life…behind a lie.
A missing girl adds further strain, and with little evidence in either case, Nora develops an improbable theory she’s determined to prove.
How far will Nora go to right the wrong one man will do anything to hide?
