Comments Stone Cove Island

  • AH

    About a 3.0-3.5 star read for me. Stone Cove Island was a quick read. The book was not at all what I expected; I thought it was to be more of an apocalyptic hurricane disaster book. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was more of a murder mystery. There was also a cute little romance as well. Thank you to Edelweiss and Soho Teen for a review copy of this book.

    I was very curious about this title because mystery is a genre that appeals to me very much. I looked forward to reading Stone Cove Island especially because of the island setting and I knew that murder taking place on such an isolated island would undoubtedly make for an edge-of-the-seat kind of read.Stone Cove Island is not the best mystery book I have read, but it was an enjoyable read. I'll get the things that didn't work out of the way first. I had trouble connecting with our main character [...]

    I was curious to read this book when I saw it promoted saying "Stepford Wives meets Stephen King". Like who would not get hooked by that tag line and want to read the book. The author did write this more for the younger teen readers. The mystery that the people of Stone Cove Island were hiding was not portrayed as dark. It was on the lighter side. Even the murder was light so that it did not seem so gruesome. The author did feel like Eliza needed help solving the mystery so she gave Eliza a budd [...]


  • Carrie

    This was a 4-star review up until the end. It's an intriguing YA mystery that pulled me in and kept me entertained. One thing I really admired was the way the author handled the teenage romance. I can't think of another romance that doesn't put a focus on either the woman's level of inexperience or experience and the unavoidable cultural value or meaning that is attached to those two states. Eliza and Charlie just ARE and the fact that that is refreshing gives me pause about the way female sexua [...]


  • Jim

    Ugh, you can predict as much about the ending, and there was no murder mystery. Yet another shitty book, and why does someone always have to be a knocked up slutty teenager. Christian conservative values anyone??


  • Drucilla

    Was heading for a 3 star rating, but it fell apart in the third act. Nothing came together. The Black Anchor club was cool, but I felt like nothing was really done with it until later in the book and by that point, it never felt like it could be a threat. Same with Eliza's (view spoiler)[mom getting arrested. (hide spoiler)] It comes so late and we never get a reason why it happened so it never feels urgent. I thought the reveal of what happened to Bess was cool, but the fact that Bess and Charl [...]


  • Lorna

    YA mystery that takes place on an Island just off the Massachusetts coast. A hurricane "stirs" up lots of secrets that 2 teens are determined to get answers about. They discover alot about their Island and their families. Maybe more then they want.


  • Mandy

    2.5 StarsI picked up this book because it's been compared to Stephen King and The Stepford Wives--one of my favorite writers, and one of my favorite books. Bonus: at 241 pages Stone Cove Island promised to be a quick, and hopefully thrilling, read. Well, it is quick And yes, like King's Delores Claiborne, it takes place on a small New England island full of buried secrets. And yes, as in Stepford, Stone Cove Island is home to a nefarious secret society dedicated to keeping the town picture perfe [...]


  • JennRenee

    This book caught my attention right away. I grabbed it first off netgalley then grabbed it on audio. It was a great audio. I was hooked into the story from the very beginning. The story had a lot to give. It was a great mystery but also had some realistic issues in the mix. It was great paced, a pretty fast read, and it was very captivating. I was happy with the read from the first page to the last page. Eliza grew up on Stone Cove Island and one of the downsides to growing up on the island are [...]


  • Cecilia

    What a fun mystery novel! I loved the setting of a small town island where everyone knows one another. The ending was pretty surprising and I enjoyed reading the journey to solve the mystery. My only problem was that the romance between Eliza and Charlie, it didn't seem genuine and didn't really get me excited.


  • Mehsi

    Even though I am a bit disappointed, I am glad I read this book. I will put up a good/bad review, since I feel like doing one of those again. :)Good~-The setting. An island, a storm and no way to access the main land easily. Add to that some 20-something murder mystery and voilà, this is one of my favourite settings (next to Boarding School + Mystery). -The storm and the details. We knew the book would be about the storm, but I didn't expect it would take this much of the book. Don't get me wro [...]

  • S. J.

    Like many other readers, I was initially sucked in by the excellent setting and deeply creepy prologue. Sadly, the rest of the novel just didn't deliver. In the first place, the mystery became deeply boring once it was revealed (abruptly and without real justification) that the "murdered" teen had faked her own death and run off to the mainland. Secondly, the Big Threat that was supposedly the Black Anchor Society.wasn't. Like, what did they even do? Who were they really? Did they actually kill [...]


  • Kitty Keith

    More like 3.5 stars. I was gifted this book at a time that I was buying a lot of other books (buying a lot of books? Shocking, right?) and because of that, this book went to the bottom of my TBR pile. Well, I finally got around to reading it! It was a quick read that kept my attention all the way through. After a hurricane hits Stone Cove Island, Eliza volunteers to help organize a clean up day. While cleaning she comes across an old letter. She brings the letter home and her parents sort of fre [...]


  • Mary Brown

    Stone Cove Island by Suzanne Myers is a great suspense romance read. It is a mixture of romance, mystery, suspense and community that is blended together very well.A New England resort town is nearly destroyed by a hurricane. The community works together to try to rebuild what they have lost. Seventeen year old Eliza volunteers to work inside the lighthouse to help restore some of the chaos. While doing this, she discovers a letter that appears to be a confession to a thirty year old murder. Whe [...]


  • Waiting For Wentworth

    This turned out to be a really good YA murder mystery with an unpredictable outcome. Well written and easy to read, it managed to capture my attention from beginning to end.Eliza and Charlie were both likable, but I didn't get to know either of them very well. While I enjoyed the romance between Eliza and Charlie, their relationship developed a bit too quickly for my taste. But I actually liked how well they worked together to solve the mystery, and the romance wasn't the main focus of the story [...]


  • Missie

    I loved the setting. I think it would be so neat to live on a island and have to take the ferry to get to a bigger town. I bet that it would be so peaceful and an amazing place to sit down and read.Eliza was a great MC. I thought she was really strong for her age, especially having to deal with her mother's depression and anxiety. The whole story that starts at the beginning where a girl goes missing and they only found some of her hair was really interesting. The mystery of the story really kep [...]


  • Susan K

    Clean romance, mystery, YAShort read (my only complaint). A mysterious disappearance/death in the past comes to light in the present. Eliza finds a note that alludes to something that happens in the past when cleaning up after a hurricane that devastates here secluded island home. She gets some help from Ben, a high school graduate who is visiting the island and stranded after the storm and unable to leave.Her digging and curiosity uncover secrets from the past that connect their small island co [...]


  • Heather Brown

    Wow! It is insane how much I liked this book! It sounded interesting, so I picked it up this afternoon and finished it before dinner without stopping. After a hurricane wreaks havoc on her small tourist town, Eliza deals with her fears and worries by doing what she can to clean up the destruction. As she cleans up the local lighthouse, she finds a creepy letter referring to a murdered girl, Bess. Neither Eliza nor any of her classmates have ever heard about Bess' disappearance thirty years ago, [...]


  • Lexi Wright

    Eliza finds the cryptic letter while cleaning the lighthouse after the hurricane. Eerily filled with fragments of nursery rhymes, it reads like a warning and references a woman named Bess. But when 17-year-old Eliza asks her parents and the other longtime locals on Stone Cove Island, a removed tourist location, about Bess’ disappearance 30 years ago, they mysteriously shut her down. Soon Eliza is drawn to investigate what she is told is Bess’ unsolved murder. As the island recovers from the [...]


  • Katelyn Jones

    The read was very enjoyable for me and I loved the mystery aspect of things. I was so hooked when I first started reading it because it had a little bit of everything I liked to read about; chaos, love interest, mystery, murder. I can honestly say I was completely confused as to who committed the "murder" and why everyone on the island was so sensitive to talk about the subject and why no one seemed to question who actually did it. Now here's where I have the problem, the mystery aspect of thing [...]


  • Nicole Jacob

    I really actually thought this novel was about something different than it turned out to be which was a very pleasant surprise. The story follows Eliza as she uncovers the truth about a murder that took place before she was born. The storm that hit the island stirred up a lot of questions and theories about what happened to Bess more than 30 years ago. Eliza learns secrets about her parents and about the town's history by digging for clues and more information on the suspected murder. While she [...]


  • Sabrina

    My typical complaints about young adult novels is that typically the protagonists are depicted as either young and naive or much older adults. It is hard to create a realistic teenage character that holds a reader's attention. Add to that the tricky mystery/crime genre, which is often gory and/or deals with issues not suitable for the demographic, and you have a very difficult task. However, Stone Cove Island delivers on both of these issues. The story was intriguing and offers something for all [...]


  • Brenna

    Stone Cove Island is not the Stephen King versus the Stepford Wives that I expected. I did enjoy the book. A hurricane hits a small New England island, leaving it without power and supplies. During the initial cleanup, Eliza finds a letter to Bess who was thought to be murdered 25 years ago. Eliza and her friend, Charlie, start to investigate the story. I would have liked to see more interaction with the other families living on the island, even if it was under the pretense of Eliza investigatin [...]


  • Kitten Kisser

    This was a pretty low key YA murder mystery novel. Nothing overly exciting happens, but despite this the author did a decent job holding my interest. Even though the book was essentially about Eliza wanting to discover exactly what happened to a local teen named Bess, the book was in many ways more about a budding romance between Eliza & Charlie. It seems like the whole town has been keeping a very big secret for a rather long time and only Eliza & Charlie want to find the truth. Towards [...]


  • Bill

    With flavors of Hawthorne’s SCARLET LETTER, mystery and rumor unravels a summer beach community off New England, when Eliza Elliot, helping to clean up after a hurricane has devastated her island community, discovers a lost letter pointing to a quarter century old murder.As she and her friend Charlie begin sorting out a mystery that leads to a secret island society with a history of intimidation and possible murder, and their parents refuse to speak about any of this, she begins to see the tru [...]


  • Lisa

    Thank you Netgalley fore e-read in exchange for honest review. This is a YA read about a mystery that flourished twenty years later in a storm that took place on an island off New England. The young girl finds a note and begins to ask questions about a girl that went missing 20 years ago. NO-ONE in town wants to talk about it. It has been kept a secret for all these years and needs to remain in the past, but why? As the story unravels, more and more towns people are becoming mysteriously involve [...]


  • Julie Responsibly

    I'd categorize this as very young YA/older middle grade, although it was about a HS senior. Good mystery, but romance was fulfilled so quickly and they had so little chemistry I ended up skipping those sections and they're usually my favorite. Also found the mystery, though well plotted in the beginning got tied up in a hasty and unrealistic way (why did you have to sail to gloucester? how did the boat get back? why was there hair with the hand pictures, why was mom ok with girl disappearing?) I [...]
