Camino Island is the first of two (so far) by John Grisham, in the Camino Island series.
Mercer, who has written and published two books, has just lost her teaching job and is asked to help an insurance company’s recovery team discover if their suspect, Bruce, who owns and operates a book store on Camino Island, has any stolen hand written manuscripts hidden in his store.
Camino Island turns out to be home or many authors of various abilities and styles, some of these authors knew Mercer’s grandmother and all are friends with Bruce.
Initially I thought this may be a bit slow but any of those thoughts vanished and the true Grisham style had me reading in the wee hours of the morning and all too soon I had completed Camino Island, book 1.
I thought Camino Island was an easy and enjoyable four star read and I eagerly await reading, or listening to, Camino Winds (book #2) when it is released in late in April 2020.
I have not read a John Grisham novel for some time as I have been busy discovering other authors. The return to a Grisham tale was a thoroughly entertaining experience.
