I picked this up in a Bookbub 99p deal, but it's not so expensive that it's not worth trying anyway. A different sort of tale for me, as a woman who left her homeland of Jamaica many years ago (after her mother's death) returns home to recuperate from a broken heart. She makes several discoveries along the way as she connects with long-lost family, has a couple of terrifying experiences and finds someone who may be worth staying for...
This was interesting in being different from just purely romantic lesfic. As other reviewers have commented, there's plenty of sex in this, but more evocative for me were the descriptions of the land and the edge of fear that I found pervading. Jamaica is not painted as a welcoming place for the LGBT community, progression having barely scratched the surface there. We still have some way to go here, but even though the author takes a side-swipe at England (when Hunter talks about it) I have to say that I'd take England, with its wet and its ice, over the risks of being murdered with a machete in Jamaica, any day!
