Stone Cove Island by Suzanne Myers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Very atmospheric setting, which made me feel a little generous (this really is a 3.5). I'm not sure this is a real mystery, more of a Cold Case and Dark Secret, although why what happened to Bess is such a secret is questionable. The romance between Eliza and Charlie was much more interesting, given the class questions (as well as their parents' tangled pasts).
And, once again, ignore the blurbage. There's nothing either Stepford Wives or Stephen King about this book.
