Elizabeth Lange has arrived at Cypress Point Spa in Pebble Beach, California, weary of heart and soul. Still grieving for her beloved sister, a famous actress who plunged to her death from her Manhattan penthouse, Elizabeth is determined to unearth the truth about how Leila died. Dashing millionaire Ted Winters stands accused of her murder, but Elizabeth has doubts.

Along the windswept cliffs of the Monterey coast, in luxurious bungalows, between gourmet meals and beachfront walks, uneasiness stalks Elizabeth while she begins opening doors to the past. As glimpses of the dark truth about Leila’s life and death — and about Elizabeth herself — start to crash against her mind, an ominous wave from an unexpected source threatens to engulf her entirely.

Review

It was actually just a short read. I could possibly finish it in just one sitting, but surprisingly, it took me a week. Well, I have some good reasons for that. First, I was busy with my job; second, I was also working on my so-called “artwork” before Christmas so I could hand it out proudly as a gift to my friends; and lastly, which I am really disappointed to say, this story started so dull that it was hard for me to keep reading it.

In normal circumstances, I could have rated this story 3 stars of worse 2 stars but instead I lit up the 4 stars. But wait, for you haven’t heard more, hehehe. Given what I said that it started dull, and yeah it is, but it’s only in the first part. Who would have thought that the suspense and the never ending guessing that I never anticipated in this short story finally revealed itself after that boring introduction. Too bad, I wish I could have waited so I could be able to finish it early.

And as usual, I’m still that lame on guessing the real culprit! MHC, you’re still damn good in always making me feel stupid on coming up with my suspects.

There’s some quite a number of English terms that I couldn’t really understand without the help of the dictionary, but it’s still cool. The scenes we’re all so fresh to me and ofcourse, the happy ending and a pinch of romance is highly attainable in this book. And any complaints about its characters or any flaws seen? Well, so far, nothing. I almost regard it as perfect without the boring opening.
