I opened this download in my Kindle for PC file thinking I'd read a couple of pages before bedtime. I didn't stop reading until 5 o'clock in the morning. SEA OF REGRET by Carolyn J. Rose is a classic suspense novel and the author didn't leave any breathing room between the pages.

The setting is the small Oregon coastal village of Castaway Beach. A wildlife rehab center is home to wounded people who give loving care to wounded birds and animals, with mixed results. The author wastes no time in introducing the main characters and setting up the conflicts.

Evie operates the rehab center on a valuable piece of property inherited from her husband. Her live-in helpers are Kate, "a square peg in a world of round holes;" Kate's lover, Jackson, a crippled, recovering alcoholic with a mysterious military background; and Way-Ray, a boy rescued by Kate from homicidal relatives.

The story opens with a threat from Evie's son, Paul, a money-hungry real estate salesman. Prodded by a group of land developers, Paul demands that Evie turn the property over to him for an upscale resort and golf course. When she refuses, his threats include having her declared mentally incompetent.

Their confrontation is not a private matter in a place like Castaway Beach. Rhea Whitaker's ice cream parlor at the center of town is on the "main stem of the grapevine" that carries news and gossip. As Kate's best friend, Rhea gives her background and advice on dealing with Paul.

Paul's first shot in the war of wills is a false rumor about rabid animals at the rehab shelter. It's not hard to squelch that rumor, but his tactics get worse. Life at the rehab shelter becomes a series of moves and counter-moves.

The town watches.

Carolyn Rose has crafted another beautiful book. While dealing with the rough edges of life, she manages to leave the reader hopeful that it can all work out. In Sea of Regret she brings back four damaged characters we first met in An Uncertain Refuge. Evie, Kate, Jackson, and little Way-Ray have been beaten up pretty good by life, but found each other. While struggling with their personal demons, the four operate an underfunded wildlife refuge where injured wildlife is brought to heal and sometimes to die. This is a gentle thriller with enough danger to keep the stakes high but Ms. Rose never resorts to senseless violence and gore as a substitute for good writing--of which there is plenty. I especially enjoyed how the author balanced the suffering and threats faced by each character with their unique strengths. In the end, those strengths help them to prevail. The story moves along quickly, the tension and conflict kept me turning pages quickly, and the action was believable. This the perfect feel good novel for an uncertain world.

Format: Paperback
Sequel to Uncertain Refuge.... After Kate, Jackson and Way-Ray were taken in by Evie they began their new life working at the Castaway Beach Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Even tho the work was hard, they still found time for family fun and also to continue the romance between Kate and Jackson. But land developers have decided they want Evie's land and they will do anything they can to get it - by starting rumors of rabies, cutting of their utilities and even kidnapping! But so far, they have managed to keep the wildlife reahab running to protect sick and injured animals of the area.

This is a great romantic thriller that has many twists and turns as they try to figure out who the developers are and what they will do next. Should they sell the land before someone gets seriously hurt or even killed? Or should they continue to stay and fight?

Even tho this is a sequel it is still a good stand alone read.

Another great book by Ms. Rose and I can't wait to see what's in store next!

FTC disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author hoping I would review it.

Sea of Regret is the sequel to Carolyn J. Rose's An Uncertain Refuge. The theme of the first book was human beings abusing other human beings. The theme of this sequel is human beings abusing animals. In this case, unscrupulous business people's profit motives threaten a wildlife center on the Oregon shore. There is a quiet intensity to the struggle of the protagonists punctuated by action scenes that clash with the rough-hewn beauty of Ms. Rose's settings. You'll like this book. Sit back, throw another log on the fire, sip a good whiskey or brandy, and become immersed in the age-old struggle of David versus Goliath.

Edie's wildlife rescue center is found on her strip of land that developers want. She is now helped by Kate, Jackson, and Way-Ray, the main three protagonists from An Uncertain Refuge. The land developers hire Paul, Edie's son, who has both the spoiled attitude of a prodigal son and a penchant for getting involved with bad elements. He goes to extremes to convince his mother to sell. When he fails, the developers take things into their own hands. The book is about Edie and friends' struggle to fight back in order to save Edie's life's work.

Carolyn J. Rose writes excellent mysteries. This book, like Refuge, is a thriller. For those who like well-defined book genres, I'll even call it a romantic thriller, because it's also the story of the growing bond between do-gooder Kate, who saved Way-Ray from a wife-abusing and violent father, and ex-military man Jackson, who struggles to stay away from liquor and manage a bum leg. I don't usually choose to read books like this, so it's somewhat puzzling to me that this one held my interest so well.

There are parts to the story that seemed a bit too syrupy-sweet.
