    One thought on “Isle of Misfortune”

    1. I think I liked this book because the setting is Galveston, then Lake Travis -- nice to read something set in Texas. It was an OK suspense novel with a few very good parts.

    2. I enjoyed the book which had some unexpected twists in it! I live close to Galveston and was also interested in the landmarks written about in the story.q
