This was a much deeper story than I was expecting and I really enjoyed it, the last quarter was a real twist that I never saw coming. I liked the way Frank and Taylor's relationship changed and evolved. If only all kids had parents as great as Taylor's foster parents, maybe there would be a lot less teens out there with issues.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Being somewhat a murder mystery it wasn't what I would normally read but I am really glad I did. It had a great plot, was well written and I fell in love with all the characters. It really was a beautiful story and I couldn't put the book down.
The story spans a 10 year period, starting with a young teenager (Taylor) found hiding in a home with his parents murdered. From that monent on the lives of Taylor and the police officer that found him, Frank, are entwined. They are like brothers and their families are close and supportive. Every summer they holiday at Frank's family's cottage and every year we watch Taylor mature until all of a sudden he's a grown man, looking at Frank in more than a brotherly way. But will their age gap be a problem and can they ever solve the mystery of who murdered his parents.
