Good Story. I think the author’s atte. You can only complain about the cost of gas and food so many times before it becomes a bit much. I just can't let all those grouchy reviews go unanswered: yes, the woman has a strong writing style, but so does William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway, and yet we force poor, defenseless high schoolers to read their fiction. 272 pages Mollie hopes it will convince her husband to rethink his hare-brained scheme of sailing off into the sunset. #1 of the Jane Bunker mystery-If you like to read books about the ocean and the fishing industry off the coast of Maine, this was an excellent story about that. I am happy to read about a subject that the author obviously knows about. But Greenlaw also explores the islands darker side, including a tragic boating accident and a century-old conflict with a neighboring community. Vivid descriptions, local language and colorful "down east" characters make this an enjoyable story even if somewhat far-fetched. I know NOTHING about boats, fishing, the ocean, etc. "Alex, honey, pay attention" ... Really, how many adult males do you know that talk to their 17-year-old sons like that, especially in life and death situation? ... ... Full Biography Link to Linda Greenlaw's Website. Hopefully it will get better as the series continues. The plot is decent and there are some great characters that are well developed.

There was a problem loading your book clubs. It seems like everyone in Green Haven knows that Jane Bunker has scored an invite to the ultra-exclusive Summer Solstice Soiree—and they all assume she’ll be in attendance, as one of the few eligible single women in town. When she gets to work one morning, the sheriff asks her to take a break on her personal war on drugs—it seems that she’s been so successful catching dealers and interrupting the flow of drugs in the area that she’s called too much attention to just how bad it’s gotten, and the community is worried that all the attention on the drug trade will deter the summer tourists that Green Haven so badly needs to keep the economy going. Linda Greenlaw's three bestselling books about life as a commercial fisherman -- THE HUNGRY OCEAN (1999), THE LOBSTER CHRONICLES (2002) and ALL FISHERMEN ARE LIARS (2004) -- have climbed as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list.
