Book Review from Amazon.com:

5.0 out of 5 stars Misthaven of Maine, Worth the Travel
Absolutely loved, Loved, LOVED this book. Being a born and bred Mainer I appreciate the feelings this book evokes. The ocean descriptions and the views of the people are so true and genuine. I kept expecting something horrible to happen and I was happy to see that beauty ultimately returned. This book was lost in my TBR list, I am so glad I found it. I highly recommend Misthaven of Maine. It is clean of smut and foul language and heavy on love and loyalty. Pick up a copy. This book is good for the soul.” — Shirley B
