Blurb: Caroline and Cyril have recently wed and are honeymooning on the Isle of Man, a glorious spot in the middle of the Irish Sea marked by picturesque villages, rocky cliffs, and bracing winds. Caroline is immediately drawn to the island’s history of rampaging Vikings, tales of mermaids and legendary kings, and the friendly inhabitants with quaint superstitions and proverbs. In no time, she falls in love with her surroundings.
But unexplainable events unfold, convincing her sinister forces are at work. Part by accident and part by design, Edward and Leslie join the couple, and together they must identify a turned British agent, retrieve a top-secret document, and learn the true meaning of the phrase, “It all comes back to the camps.” Will logic and reason prevail, or will a bit of magic and island whimsy save the day?

Review: this is one of those books that had me so confused I didn’t even begin to understand what it was talking about. Of course, it didn’t help that I had started reading the third book in the series, without reading books one and two first. Overall, it was a bit confusing. But it was worth it in the end. I found this story to be quite intriguing.
Caroline and Cyril are a great couple and when they meet Edward and Leslie, things start picking up big time. I found myself intrigued by how the story was written and how the characters present and hold strong no matter what. It is amazing what a bit of strength and some danger can do for a story.
Overall, this story is strong, powerful, and mesmerizing. I found myself wanting to read it again and again. I would highly recommend this to those that like to read historical fiction and the mystery that comes with it.
