I can’t think of a better way to pass a rainy Sunday than reading a good book. I always like to have a book on hand for such an occasion. Seventeen Days didn’t disappoint. It’s not often I get uninterrupted time to do just what I love best, to dive into a story and stay there. The best part of my day was when a severe thunderstorm passed through and at that very moment, I was at a suspenseful part in the story. You can imagine how the combination of the two made me come alive with adrenaline, but I never put the book down. It was too exciting!

From the first page I was drawn into the story as Jenna, the heroine, was exploring the house she inherited from her grandfather. There were several well developed characters introduced throughout the story. I loved the setting of a quiet California fishing village. It was the perfect backdrop for gossip, rumors and murder. Seventeen Days consisted of all the ingredients needed to create a fast paced story with unexpected plot twists.

I felt the chemistry between the hero, Rick, and Jenna even though he was reserved. Rick had his reasons to be cautious especially after what happened to him three years ago. It was sweet how his son and Jenna connected over her drawings. Jenna was easy to like. It was only a matter of time before they realized they had a future together.

I need to mention how much I absolutely loved that the author, Linda Griffin, chose to end the story with an “Afterword”. That was better than an epilogue, and everyone knows how much I adore epilogues. I just loved that wrap up. Seriously, this book deserves the opportunity to be read. I recommend it.


  1. Excellent book in every way!
