I had never heard of this author before but since I love suspense I decided to give it a try. Wow! What a pleasant surprise. The story line was great. The suspense and love was perfect. I read every single word. There was no long descriptive pages to work through. And the 3 main characters were loveable. I immediately purchased the next 2 books. Finding Marie and Inside Story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

When I first began reading, I thought that this was just another romance novel--but boy was I wrong!--this story is much more than that. It's also part suspense and adventure. The story line is one that keeps the attention of the reader. Just when it seems to be concluding, a new complexity develops. The ending is worth the price of the book! <BR/><BR/>The characters are believable. Rachel is a new Christian who gets assigned to a naval location with two other men. Talk about lonely! She has a problem with her temper and taking orders from a domineering male. As she stumbles along in her new faith, the reader can't help but root for her. She's almost forced to turn to God, and when she does, the reader can witness her growth in character. George, the man in charge, is a guy who takes time to get to know; there's something in his background that must be revealed. Pierre is comfortable from the first page he appears. These three naval officers assigned on a remote island set the stage for both romance and suspense. A good read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Frasier Island is a quality romance set in today's world. The main characters are well defined, realistic and likeable. The military details are well researched and accurate. The story did seem to move a bit slowly at first, but unexplained comments concerning the past & hints of the future kept me reading and it was certainly worth it. The action was suspenseful and it kept on coming to the end. To say more may ruin the book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Wow! This story packed some emotional punch. I enjoyed the romance and the suspense equally. That's very unusual for me because I usually prefer the romance, but the intrigue was fabulous! The romantic element and suspense were so intricately woven together that separating the two elements would've unraveled the entire story. I loved George about as much as Rachel did! He was such a great hero in every sense. The longing they felt for each other was perfectly done. It made my heart ache despite the fact that they were fictional characters. At times I lost sight of that fact and just wanted to see them together. And that first kiss....ahhhhh. Very satisfying. Rachel was tough, but lovable and cute. I enjoying experiencing her character growth along with her. Trust was hard for her to learn, but rewarding when she experienced the benefits of putting her life in God's capable hands. In some ways this story had an exotic feel like the Hawaiian setting of Heitzmann's novel Freefall (which was awesome!) Frasier Island was different in that it had a touch of Gilligan's Island sentiment. Portions of the book had a real 'castaway' feel. Rachel made me think of Maryann because she was fun and dainty, yet also tough when needed. George and Rachel were so isolated on that island that at times it made me get the shivers. And not knowing who the bad guy was for the last third of the book was quite exciting. Sure, there were little hints dropped as who it might be, but I felt the tension as they hid from the unknown. I loved how they had to protect themselves and stay on the offensive at the same time. Brilliantly done! The secondary characters were also terrific. Pierre was a dream and Brian was creepy at first. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Oh, and the last chapter of Frasier Island was probably the best part of the story. Talk about great endings! This was no wall-banger. It made me want to sigh and grin like a fool. I loved this book! Frasier Island was published by Harvest House and is being released this month!Was this review helpful?
