Review: Il Molo By: Theresa Nash

Il MoloIl Molo by Theresa Nash
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

*****This Is A First Reads, Thank You Goodreads*****

I think that this is a 3 1/2 star book. It is hard to summarize without giving away a spoiler that leaves a deep twist, but I am going to try.
Martha and Carl Tomas return every year to the Lugarian Coast of Italy, it is there that they find the time to unwind, catch up on the sun, a few activities, and in Martha's case - in Part 1 it seems as though it is a reacquaintance of a lover that brings her back. The imagery of the book brings the story alive, the smells, the venders surround the reader with vivid descriptions, I felt as though I was there (and that alone was worth the read) -- but the twist, which I didn't see coming, and together like a puzzle working itself out in Part 2 was interesting. Part 2 though was a little rushed through to the resolution.
A good mystery for the beach or those stuck inland looking for an escape.
