- The setting – I really would love to visit the US Virgin Islands now.
- The references to 80’s music. My kinda music. I kept the YouTube page open so I could listen to those much-loved songs again. Yay for those days.
- The Pamela-esque humor: Here’s an example. Katie is thinking: “I had been fighting off the urge to slip my arms around Nick’s neck and bite the back of it, but I was aware that most people would consider that inappropriate at work. Pretty small minded of them, if you ask me!”
- The first person writing. Always love it!
- The examples of OCD: “combing the fringe on throw pillows.” “Tangled Fringe” “vacuum backwards because I don’t like how footprints look on the rug.” So hilarious!
- Did you know that when you read on Kindle, you can make your own notes in the book? Yes! I loved finding that out when I accidentally ran the cursor over a patch of text.
- I loved the tension I had as the book came to a close – when Walker had both Ava and Katie in that truck. Thank God for martial arts! Although I admit I felt a little sad when Katie buried her Mother’s ring. Sigh.
- I loved the jumbie spirit of Annalise. I swear I’ve heard true stories of occurrences like that. What can I say? I believe in magic.
- That the dogs were named Cowboy, Laila…
- I loved that Katie sang.
- It was cute to see Katie wavering over Nick – and burying her sim card in a ziplock bag
- Loved the characterization of Ava, Rashidi, Emily and Collin.
