I love to read, mostly historical fiction with a little historical romance and some ghosty stories thrown int.

Firefly Beach

Firefly Beach - Meira Pentermann This story follows Beth as she tries to make a new life for herself as a painter in a small fictitious coastal town in Maine. With the help of a “firefly” she finds a diary of a girl who used to live in the cottage she is renting. The girl, Katherine, had gone missing 35 years ago when she was 17 and Beth becomes obsessed with finding her.Sounds like a good plot and it really was. But, it turned out to be one of those books that I finished quickly in order to just finish. I think it comes down to the writing style. I didn’t feel attached to the characters at all. To me they seemed just like characters in a book, not people that I wanted to get to know and spend time with.I did enjoy the fantasy aspect of the story, it wasn’t overdone and fit the story perfectly. I also liked the ending. I saw it coming about 3/4 of the way through the book, and I was happy at the end that I was right. It is really 3.5 stars
