Review by: Johanna Beth Michaels on March 14, 2015 :
Saving Grace is YES INDEED one of those books that I found almost impossible to put down. I devoured every page, delved into every sentence and character. I relished in the feeling of being in the company of people that felt like my own friends and family. I identified with Katie, often jumping from the frying pan into the fire and truly learning to live life along the way. It is authors who have the ability to make you feel as though you or someone you know are a part of the story while writing a wonderful, attention getting and keeping story that get my rating of 5 stars and my recommendations to everyone who will listen. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series and P. F. Hutchins's other books as well. Thank You Pamela for sharing your work of art freely and if I could I would give it 10 Stars. A definite read and I RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY!

A fun, nicely-written book, especially if you like main characters who start off as a total mess! The mystery wraps up tidily. Some of the characters are vibrant (others not so much) and I loved the depiction of island society, but what makes this story unusual is Annalise. Glad she was in it.

Overall, it wasn't really my cup of tea and I don't think I'll read the other books in the series, but it's certainly worth giving it a try.

OK YES I am the authors husband, no tricks here, AND, this really is a great book. I have read a ton of books in my lifetime, owned a bookstore before Pamela and I even met. When I first read some of her writing I was immediately hooked by her VOICE, yes, she has an amazing unique wonderful, funny, smart, voice.
She has had the good fortune of hooking up with an excellent editor who has helped her create some really GREAT stuff while keeping that Voice.
Saving Grace is the first of 3 in the series. It zips along full of life, laughs, color and mystery. The Characters are not cardboard cutouts, the scenes are NOT black and white.
If you give Katie (the main character)a chapter, she will have you hooked for the series.
And guys, this is NOT a girls-only book. If you want a great story with characters you can attach to, a murder mystery with a fast pace, and some great laughs while you are at it, this is it.

Pamela Hutchins' debut fiction novel, Saving Grace, is a quick paced and fun read...I made the suggestion that my book group read it, and, I'm getting texts saying things like..."Saving Grace...fab book, I don't want to put it down, but have to make dinner! Loving it! xo" The book brings back fond memories for me of a place that I used to know quite well...The island culture is amazingly well portrayed and the characters are fully human, complicated and flawed, as we all are. A must read!
