  • Fast-paced and enthralling!!

    With bits of romance and tension this was a novel I couldn't put down!! The Last Train to Key West was enriched in history, descriptive, and beautifully written. Chanel Cleeton takes you back in time to 1935 Key West, Florida during The Great Depression. Told through the perspective of three women; Helen, Mirta, and Elizabeth, each woman coming from a different background. Soon their lives become entwined and they each must survive one of the most perilous hurricanes to hit in history! We're first introduced to Helen Berner. She lives on the island in a small cottage with her husband Tom. Tom is a fisherman but he's also an abusive drunk. Helen works as a waitress at the local diner, Ruby's, and she sees all kinds of people come and go. John is a veteran patron who comes to the diner on the weekends. Helen is intrigued by the burly man as she witnesses the heavy burden he bears and the dark mood that surrounds him. Mirta Perez is accompanied by her new husband, Anthony Cordero. They've just arrived from Havana, Cuba by ferry. Her family had a secure position in Cuba after supporting president Machado and were spared following Machado's exile. Anthony is a handsome and wealthy man with connections to the crime life. Mirta's father arranged for Anthony to marry her. They didn't know each other prior and haven't found any common ground presently. Mirta finds she is constantly struggling to make sense of her new life. Elizabeth Preston is riding the train from New York on her way to Key West. She comes from a family name that used to mean something. Running from her life in New York and her dangerous fiancé, Elizabeth finds herself flirting with a college boy. However, she's really trying to grab the attention of a rather handsome suit, so she acts a bit provocative for the first time. Upon arriving to Key West, she heads towards Ruby's Diner for a bite to eat. From that moment on as each woman meets, their connections are formed and the story truly begins. As the reader, you can feel the emotions as disaster stricks the small island, witnessing the devastation from multiple points of view. Fast-paced and enthralling, I was left on the edge of my seat!! I loved how Chanel tied fact with fiction, creating such a mesmerizing story. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from Berkley Publishing through Edelweiss.

  • A bit of history a bit of Roman

    Some reviewer felt there was too much romance in this story but I didn't feel it was over the top. I enjoyed the book and enjoyed how she was able to connect some of the characters in the book. I always appreciate a bit of history about the hurricane that took place in 1935. I'm looking forward to her next book.
