This book was a very interesting read. The characters were very believable and real. Reading about WWII bombings and blackouts in Inverness Scotland while the characters searched for The Loch Ness monster was very adventurous and gave the book a bit of a fantasy feel. Watching Maddie's transformation as her marriage is failing gives the book a romantic edge when Maddie falls in love with the proprietor of the inn. The book held my interest until the end and had a very magical feel as the characters realized that "the monsters we seek may be right in front of us".
