3 1/2 stars
off, forget everything you know about the Moon spinners from the Disney
movie with Hayley Mills (which, by the way I thought was pretty good);
the book is completely different.
Basically, a young woman
arranges to meet up with her aunt in a small coastal village in Greece
for a short holiday. Nicola arrives a day ahead of her aunt and while
exploring on her way to the hotel, stumbles upon a wounded English man,
Mark, who has apparently got caught in the cross hairs of a feud and
witnesses a murder. His young brother, Colin, is now missing. Nicola's
role is to help Mark find his missing brother (Is he dead?) and avoid
getting herself killed in the process.
I enjoyed this book and the
descriptions of Greece were realistic. It's a light read, a mystery with
a mild romantic undercurrent and some funny tidbits. Good story.
LANGUAGE: Very mild cussing
DRUG USE/ DRINKING: some cigarette smoking
Mild. A "fisticuffs" fight at the end which I found almost humorous.
(not sure if it was meant to be but it seemed almost comic)
MY RATING: PG
