Butterfly Island was a great summer read. The exotic setting drew me right in. There was enough detail to make me feel I was there. The story was intriguing…the family secrets and trying to find them out. I am finding out I really enjoy books with some historical fiction. Since I am an adventurous spirit the foreign settings are always exciting. Loved the back story letters and diaries. The MC romance was more like a romance novel. Not too much to that story line. The real meat of this book was in the family secrets. Very interesting book! I will be reading more of this author.
