Very dated book. Sad- full of stereotypes. I love Elizabeth Lowell's works, but this book follows her basic plotline: hurt/innocent young woman falls for the worldly, dashing, hunk of man that wants nothing to do with a relationship. They have sex; he feels like a heel for seducing the poor lass. Misunderstandings abound. Then, they have a fight of sorts, clear it up, and all is well again.
I love Elizabeth Lowell!! This was great fun to read, especially as it was a tribute to The Great Barrier Reef and Australians of the 80s. In my head, I had images of the male supporting characters wondering around in terry towelling hats, short "stubbies" shorts and thongs (just like my dad and grandads did in those days). Everyone except the two leads talked like Crocodile Dundee tragics. Despite these colloquial cliches (maybe they weren't exactly cliches when she wrote the book), it was a good plot and an easy read (I managed it in about 6 hours at the beach house). I love that her publishers are re-releasing her oldest books for newer readers.
