Editorial Reviews

Review

"People who loved Traci Hohenstein’s first novel, Burn Out, will definitely love the second installment in the Rachel Scott series, Asylum Harbor....A thrill ride from beginning to end, Asylum Harbor more than fills the bill for those who are fans of James Patterson or Mary Higgins Clark. If you like your suspense packed with plenty of action and enough turns to rival an obstacle course, I highly recommend this book." Night Owl Reviews

About the Author

Traci Hohenstein’s educational background includes journalism, real estate, and finance. Since her college days, she has written for both the local and national media. Inspired by the Natalee Holloway case, she wrote Asylum Harbor and Burn Out, novels in a suspense series that features Rachel Scott, who runs a missing persons search and rescue operation. Born in Moultrie, Georgia, the author has lived in California, Hawaii, Alabama, Mississippi, and Atlanta, and now resides in the Florida Panhandle, with her firefighter husband and their three children. In between books, Hohenstein spends time with her family and friends at the beach where she enjoys paddleboarding, swimming, building sandcastles, and soaking up the sun.

More About the Author

Dear Reader,
Thanks for checking out my author page. A little about me... I live in NW Florida with my husband, who is a firefighter, and my three kids. We live near the beach, where I love to hang out every chance I get. I am a full-time writer, but in my spare time I love to paddleboard (YOLO!).

I'm the author of the bestselling Rachel Scott series: Look For Me (series prequel), Asylum Harbor, Burn Out, and Cut & Run. The series centers around Rachel Scott and her search-and-rescue company, Florida OmniSearch, and Rachel's search for her own missing daughter.

If you like to read romance, try The Hollywood Hills series, which is a group of romantic comedy novellas that I wrote featuring Special Delivery, Split Decision, and Sinfully Delicious. The last book in this installment, Something Delightful (Venus Vanderbilt's story), will be out late Summer 2013!

I love to hear from my readers and answer each email. You can send me a private email at tracihohenstein@gmail.com or find me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/tracisatterfield. Facebook is where I post news, pictures, excerpts, appearances and more. Thanks for reading! Traci

I enjoyed Asylum Harbor very much. It kept me guessing the entire time, and I found the characters appealing and the premise intriguing - I've always wondered what the circumstances were when somebody just disappeared off a cruise ship! I read 'Burn Out' and liked that one, and this one doesn't disappoint as a prequel. It was interesting to me to get the back story on how Rachel Scott (the protagonist) met a lot of the characters that were in 'Burn Out', and I also got a better feel for everybody after reading this book. I think the idea behind this series - a woman whose child went missing years ago now runs a search and rescue operation to find missing children - is a great one with a lot of potential for future books, too. If you like fast-paced thrillers with a hint of romance in them, you should buy this book!

Hohenstein writes a second Rachel Scott story. Rachel was introduced in Burn Out - as a mother who has a child abducted she is now on a mission to find her own daughter and help others.

This installment is a Natalie Holloway type - the 18 year old daughter of the Florida governor and Presidential candidate goes missing while on a cruise with friends. Rachel and her Omni search crew are called in at the request of the governor.

A journalist tells the investigators that the cruise ship line has something to hide - maybe multiple things. DEA confirms that the line is suspected of running drugs.

A tired plot device - the sinister island is center stage. The writing in this second book is not much of an improvement from the first one. Some violence, an illusion to romance and a reference to Scott's own missing daughter round out the story.

The back story has possibilities but Hohenstein's writing is substandard.

What can I say, the book was great. It kept me guessing. Couldn't put the book down, but when I had to, I couldn't wait to pick it up and start reading again. The author of the book is a fabulous writer. Enjoyed the book thoroughly.

This is the story of Rachel Scott. Her daughter went missing five years ago and she has been searching for her ever since. On meeting other parents whose children have also gone missing, she decides to sell up her Real Estate firm and set up Florida Omni Search. This is an organisation dedicated to searching for missing children. In this novel Rachel is personally asked by the Governor of Florida to search for his daughter. She has gone missing while on a cruise liner with two of her girlfriends. Thus begins a frantic search to find her before it's too late. With so little information to go on, can they find her?

I enjoyed this, it was a nice easy read, nothing complicated about it. Having read another Rachel Scott novel by the same author - Burn Out - I knew what to expect. I was not let down. The pace started slowly as we were introduced to the various characters but as the search for Amber began in earnest the book took off and left me panting! Amber shone as the victim and Rachel's determintion and drive to find her was admirable. She will stop at nothing to find her own daughter and it is this motivation she uses to find others.

A great book with a great ending. Give it a go - you will love it.

This is a great book that moves quickly and has excellent dialogue. I don't know what those other folks are seeing, but this is a great read.

The plot concept was interesting, and the first chapter's writing was decent enough to encourage me to spend the $1.99 while this was a Kindle Daily Deal. Unfortunately, the author put all her effort into the first chapter, and the rest was poorly written, with a choppy flow, caricatures instead of characters, and illogical plot development.
The caricatures included (SPOILER ALERT):
* the druggie "aunt" who turned out to be the biological mother who overcame her past and sacrificed her life to save her daughter;
* the daughter who had been shot, sedated for days, and decided to start exercising so she could plot her escape. After one day of doing stomach crunches, she was fit and ready to escape;
* the main protagonist, who was constantly haunted by the fact that her own daughter had been taken several years ago, and she was driven to save others from a similar situation.

I'm not sure which upset me more, spending $1.99 for this book, or reading it to the boring end.

Loved this book! It is an easy read with a great story line. Some really great twists and turns that I did not see coming- The character development of Rachel is fantastic. The previous book Burn Out really made me want to find out more about her. Really enjoyed this part of the story. Also, the way the author sets up the scene with just enough details to make you think you are there is great too.. Can't wait for the next book!

Great concept. Interesting woman with a different job- finding missing persons. But this was not an introduction to an independent missing person investigator. This was a tv movie police procedural. When I feel like I wasted my time reading a book it gets a one star.
