What was your overall impression of the story and what was your final rating?

Edited: May 31, 2017, 6:42pm Top

I am definitely interested in reading more of May's books (I have The Blackhouse sitting on my TBR pile after our discussions late last year re favorite authors and trilogies)

I am going to jump up from 3.75 to end at 4.25.

I am going to give it 4.5. It was a cracking read but just missing something that stopped it being a 5.

>3 Andrew-theQM: I don't give 5s much at all -- those are usually reserved for my "favorites."

It was really good and I liked it better than Entry Island, which I also enjoyed. I'm ending at a 4.5.

Loved the book and the setting of the story. Ending with a 4.5.

I gave it a 5 last time I read and it's still a 5 for me. Here's my review from October:

Peter May is one of my favorite authors. He is an excellent writer and brings The Hebrides to life for all his readers. In your mind's eye you can see and feel what it's like to live on one of these islands as you read his books. His characters are very realistic and their lifestyle plays a very important part in the intricacy of his plots. The book was a page turner and held my interest to the very end. Learning about the cycle of bees was an added plus to the story. I highly recommend this book to those who love Scottish mysteries and I look forward to reading more from Peter May in the near future.

>7 EadieB: Good review, Eadie.

I loved this reading experience - 4.5β˜…s from me.

I was a bit disappointed in the rushed ending, but not enough to drop all the way down to 4 stars.
Since I'm not a ΒΌ stars rater, I'll stick with 4.5 stars.

Okay everyone. I guess we a little more than really liked it. Overall rating 4.51. Haven't had one rate that high since The Executioner in February.

Yey! 🍾πŸ₯‚
