    Moving story set in Scotland in 1945

    I fell in love with Maggie as her character developed from a spoiled, wealthy, party girl into a woman of integrity and passion. We meet Maggie on New Year's Eve 1944 in Philadelphia and travel with her by freighter through U-boat infested waters to her arrival January 14, 1945 in the Scottish Highlands where she is confronted with the folly of her husband Ellis and his best friend Hank's quest to capture the Lochness Monster on film. The depths of treachery that Ellis will to go to achieve his life goal of wealth and a good name puts Maddie in danger many times. Her friendship with Anne and Meg grow as Maddie learns basic life skills at the inn where Ellis has left her behind. The reality of women's roles and expectations in 1945 are highlighted in good experiences and brutal ones. Definitely a book I would highly recommend. Thanks to Net Galley for access to an advance copy of this novel.

    Interesting and provacative

    Maddie at first seemed such a spoiled society babe and it was great to see her transform into her own unique personality. The background history complimented this characters growth and brought to light how different facets of society saw the war.

    A Movie in the Making

    Three young adults, naive of world events, rich, and irresponsible encounter life changing events searching for the Loch Ness Monster. a story that leaves you exasperated with the naïveté of the characters. Barely is it about anyone but themselves. No doubt movie material , not complex but romantic if that's your thing

    Classic Gothic Romance

    In the same vein as Whitney or Holt, this is a tale of a young woman caught in a web of lies that lead her to marry a man who is totally unsuited. And when she finds herself in the back of beyond in Scotland looking for a monster, she soon learns which monster is real and that true friends are the most important part of life.
