This is book #3 in the Stockholm Diaries series, and it takes place on a small, rather isolated island out in the Stockholm archipelago. Sweden has a strong summer cabin culture, and the archipelagos are filled with tiny, rustic retreats where residents spend their July vacations.
Melanie's stuggles with island life are real - getting food or anything else out to the islands is a project that takes some planning, and her lack of a motor boat makes independent living much more complicated.
But Melanie's story is also about looking into the past. Long ago, I read A.S. Byatt's Possession and loved it, and this book was partly inspired by the same exploration of private documents, though Stockholm Diaries, Melanie is certainly a much steamier and less literary version of this plot!
I hope you enjoy this new twist on Stockholm romance.
