Book Description

After Carrie Sinclair's husband betrays her, she flees halfway around the world to hole up in the remote Fiji islands. But what was supposed to be two weeks of solace quickly changes when on the way back from one of the outer islands, Carrie falls overboard and is left behind. Exhausted and nearly done in, she finally makes it to an uninhabited island, where she spends the next two years alone, eking out her survival. When rescue finally occurs, it brings with it much more than release from the island.

Editorial Reviews


"A Patch of Blue is an adventure-filled, enticing novel that is sure to attract readers of all ages and interests ... a story that tackles adventure, a budding romance, and the struggles of marriage, family, and relationships - truly a novel with something for everyone. Sharon Mikeworth created a novel that fosters the "can't-put-down" feeling that all authors yearn to achieve."  
--Red City Review
"The author, Sharon Mikeworth, has created an amazing adventure that has both credence and reality as the reader experiences all of Carrie's emotions and turmoil as she comes to terms with her husband's betrayal. Her struggles to survive on the remote and uninhabited island had me sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation. The descriptions are stunning and draw the reader into the world of Carrie while she determinedly makes a life for herself as she waits for rescue. This is fast-paced and exciting and I was totally absorbed in the story."
--Readers' Favorite
"A combination of pretty excellent characters swept together in a compelling plot. Enjoyable and well-written, brief and fast-paced without being rushed.This is a book that would appeal to all the over-worked and under-appreciated wives and mothers who want to invest their leisure minutes in something worth reading."
 --Online Book Club
"The book starts off with a bang right from the start and doesn't let up. I found myself glued to the pages and soaking up this adventure ... a definite page-turner."

Carrie Sinclair on witnessing her husband's infidelity decides she needs to get away. When she finds out she can't get on a cruise at short notice, Abby, her travel agent recommends Fiji. Carrie jumps at the opportunity just as long as she's away from her husband. A few days before she's due to return everything changes on the day she goes out to one of the surrounding islands, with a group to go snorkelling.

This was an interesting read. It was well-written apart from the few grammatical errors, kids instead of kind and can instead of came just being a couple of examples.

I don't know why but from the start I assumed this book had something to do with someone falling into a coma - I have no idea where that came from. This book has nothing in the slightest to do with comas. After Carrie's world changed I found the story became a bit too coincidental and far-fetched. I mean everything she wanted she found.

I loved Jesse. He was so damn adorable and very much the gentleman. I'm not sure what I make of Carrie. She was a great protagonist but I seriously wanted to punch her when she walked back to her husband. She had it going good and was prepared to live a lie. I'm glad she realised it all before it was too late. I did feel that as soon as she was back in Fiji, after being rescued, everything went a bit too fast in her life. Maybe that's how it goes after a traumatic experience.

I did get a bit confused at one point because she was on about having called Ally back at the hotel but I'm sure she called Abby! Oh well.

I was not expecting anything that this book threw at me. I liked that. It didn't seem to predictable. I thoroughly enjoyed Carrie's time on the island. It made me think of what I would have done had I been in that position and I don't think I'd have had her willpower. I wasn't jumping for joy to continue reading this book but once I picked it up and started I didn't want to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down September 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When I sat down to read this book, I wasn't prepared to not be able to put it down. It started with a husband's infidelity, and I thought...oh here we go, a book about a woman moaning about how she tried to turn her life around. Well, I was in for a surprise! This was a kick in the pants book that was a fast, fun, but totally can't put it down read! I loved the characters, loved the adventure, and really loved Jesse. Yes, I know the story is a bit wild, but the twists and turns kept me completely engaged. This was thriller, love story, adventure and revenge all rolled into one. I highly recommend it and it would be a perfect beach vacation read...just make sure you take more than this one will finish it is that delicious.

After Carrie finds her husband cheating on her, she waits until their two teenage boys are away for the summer, then meets a travel agent hoping to immediately go on a cruise. When that isn't available, Carrie finds her way to Fiji for a 2 week get-a-way. A little boat trip changes her life forever when she falls off the boat and finally makes her way to a deserted island. Although I find the rest of this story very farfetched, I'd still enjoyed reading it!
