Reviews

"Romance and mystery, war and Prohibition, infidelity and murder, inheritance and lies--the list of ingredients is long and potent in this cocktail of dramatic suspense rooted in early-20th-century Florida . . . Williams' story, a rich brew of suspicion and intensity, also has a flavor of Daphne du Maurier, with its Cornish roots, dubious housekeeper, and embattled heroine . . . there's no denying the author's full-blooded commitment to her intricate edifice . . . Williams spins a good, spirited yarn."--Kirkus
"[Beatriz Williams is] a master of the historical fiction genre . . . COCOA BEACH is a breathtaking family drama that moves from the battlefields of World War I France to the sun-soaked beaches of Prohibition Era Florida."--Shelf Awareness
"If you aren't actually traveling to Florida this summer, picking up Beatriz Williams' latest just might be the next best thing . . . If you're hankering for a Prohibition-era romp through Florida with a healthy dose of intrigue, look no further."--Bookish
"Williams has gained a solid reputation with readers for her gracefully written historical fiction, and COCOA BEACH is an excellent example of her ability to flawlessly marry a finely honed plot rich in unexpected twists and turns with a full cadre of richly nuanced characters, who will keep readers engaged from the book's first page to its stunning conclusion. Readers who enjoy novels with a strong sense of place and time will especially savor William's latest masterwork . . ."--Reader to Reader
". . . A gripping novel of scandal and suspense. Williams is at the top of her game, crafting an engrossing beach read with enough twists and turns, action and surprises to keep anyone riveted. Florida in the summer was never more intriguing."--RT Book Reviews
