Editorial Reviews

Review

"OBSIDIAN is a terrific combination of romance and suspense. Teagan Oliver knows how to keep her readers turning the pages!" -- Tess Gerritsen, author of THE MEPHISTO CLUB.

"Tangled mystery and touching romance--it doesn't get any better than OBSIDIAN. I couldn't put it down." -- Susan Vaughan, author of DEADLY MEMORIES.
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

Obsidian wasn't the first book I wrote, but it was the first book that I sold. For me, that was a wonderful, heart stopping moment when I realized that anything really was possible. Obsidian also holds a special place in my heart as it's set in a fictional town that is based on my own hometown. For those that know me they are able to pick out the local landscape as they read through my story. I only hope I did it justice.

Shelby's story is unfortunately a sad tale that plays out quite often in the small fishing communities along the coast. The work and the living is hard and the fight to just make it day to day can sometimes mean the loss of a loved one. But being a true Mainer, Shelby carries on and takes on the task of taking care of everyone else that needs it as well.

Jamie is a tribute to my father. I'd long wanted to create a Coast Guard hero for him. What these men do on a daily basis is nothing short of heroic and hard. Like Shelby, Jamie is dealing with loss in his own way. He's determined to do anything to find out who killed his friend. I gave him the opportunity by coming to Maine. My thanks go out to the USCG members who were patient and gave me information. I appreciate it. Any mistakes or inconsistencies are my own work of fiction.

I hope you all fall in love with this place and these characters. They truly come from my heart. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Teagan Oliver grew up on an island on the coast of Maine. The island may have been connected to the mainland by a bridge, but that didn't stop it from instilling a love of the ocean, the people who live there and a love for the history that is as fanciful as it's residents.

Never one to side for a typical or quiet life, Teagan has done everything from selling promotional products, working as an event planner, sold outdoor products for that big name Maine retailer, and even did a stint as Santa's elf.

Teagan's love of the paranormal comes from her background as a former ghost hunter, a self professed Taphophile and a Spirit Intuitive. (if you don't know what that is, ask her, she loves questions). She loves anything vintage, jewelry, dishes, history and people.

When not enjoying life with her family or writing, Teagan now divides her time between her many loves, including presenting workshops for writers, selling and researching anything vintage, jewelry, dishes, history and people, and lastly, spending time recording the stories and legends of her home state of Maine.

Format: Hardcover
The explosion on a boat killed his best friend, Coast Guard Special Investigation Unit partner David while leaving Jamie Rivard physically battered and mentally worse. The Coast Guard places Jamie on sick leave while he heals. However, his Commanding Officer McAlvey says that there is evidence that David illegally sold guns and if Jamie wants to quietly and unofficially investigate to prove otherwise he should.

Jamie travels to Chandler, Maine where he obtains work with John Case, who is the prime suspect in the weapons trafficking. He also meets John's niece harbormaster Shelby Teague, whose husband died on the ocean which her brother apparently emulates the recklessness of her late spouse. As Jamie begins to uncover the shocking truth, he and Shelby fall in love, but neither seems to trust the other with the full truth while a behind the scenes Machiavelli type manipulates everyone involved.

OBSIDIAN is an entertaining investigative romantic suspense that hooks readers with the boat explosion that kills David and severely injures Jamie. The relationship between the lead couple enhances Jamie's inquiries because he does not trust her as she obviously is loyal to and loves her Uncle John, his prime suspect while she has doubts about men with secrets especially after the escapades of her spouse and new her brother. Though the criminal mastermind seems over the moon, readers will enjoy accompanying Jamie as he explore coastal Maine seeking the truth about his late partner and his heart.

Obsidian is wonderful! This romantic suspense has plenty of riveting action. Teagon Oliver has a wonderful knack for description and engaging compelling characters. Jamie and Shelby's dominant issue is trust in their relationship and you root for them throughout! Looking forward to more books by this author!

Obsidian was filled with twists and turns that kept this reader guessing until the very last chapter. I enjoyed watching the characters grow as they worked together to solve the mystery in a Maine coastal community. Obsidian definitely belongs on my keeper shelf.
