Editorial Reviews

Review

I would recommend "Swan Loch" to all generations and all age groups. Mixter has the ability and insight to bring back the faith and trust in relationships and friendships that, at times, we feel no longer exist. By combining a love story with mystery and sci-fi, this story comes together beautifully. - Kimberly Shursen - Underground Book Reviews                                                                                           



I liked the dialogue and found it believable and well written, and dialogue in my opinion can either make or break a book. I would read another work by this author and encourage others to as well. - Iona Martin - Amazon Top Reviewer                                                                                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            


Heart-rending, mind-tingling, above average fiction. Mysterious and romantic at the same time, Swan Loch is an addicting read. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves romance, crime, and mystery novels. Or anyone who loves books! - Anna B     

What a beautiful, moving and romantic love story. All the relationships were special and touching. Enjoyed it very much. No language, no explicit sex and grammar and spelling were perfect. It was really great. - Cathy S. Reynolds                             

Swan Loch is a romance that spans time and universes and is one of the best books I have ever read.
Larry Deibert - author of Combat Boots, Dainty Feet and The Christmas City Vampire 

From the Author

Swan Loch is a Mystery Thriller with a touch of the Paranormal. For those readers who follow my Jake Stanton adventures, FBI Agent Stanton has a significant role in Swan Loch.  

A passage from Swan Loch.
   Chris parked along the side of the road and they walked a dirt path to the Lake of Swans. A bright full moon and a cloak of stars blanketed the night. The lake, still and placid, reflected the sky, duplicating the universe on its shallow surface.
   "Rumor has it that this lake only shows the stars a few times a year. It seems we were lucky tonight," Chris said to Molly as they neared the lake. They were alone in the night. In the distance the faint light of houses spaced far apart could be seen. Trees surrounded much of the lake, but here, close to the foot path, a grassy slope curved gently into the water's edge.
   "My God," Molly said when they were close enough. "I feel like I'm surrounded by stars."

Swan Loch is a very interesting and unique book! Randy Mixter is an excellent writer. He combines the romance and love of three couples, suspense, murder, evil, heartbreak, joy, and even the supernatural in this page-turner novel. It is fast-paced and highly descriptive, with good characterization of the interesting people of Swan Loch. The reader gets to know them very well! The unique plot makes you think, "Could it really be? Could it really happen?" If you are looking for a truly different and thought-provoking novel, Swan Loch should be your choice!

This book grabs you in the first few pages and doesn't let go until the end. I have long been a fan of Dean Koontz and find this authors style of writing to be remarkably similar. It is a mystery, a love story and a tragedy with an ending that leaves you wondering if something like this is really possible. A great summer read.

After falling in love with Sarah of the Moon, I was so excited to get my hands on Swan Loch. As I've come to expect from Randy Mixter's writing, I was transported to another time and place with wonderful descriptive detail. I could absolutely picture this Idyllic small town and all the characters within.
Swan Loch has a little something for everyone. There is mystery...heart melting romance...fantasy...magic...
I was drawn in immediately with this sense of foreboding, but also promise. The love shared by our main characters is the kind of rare love that so few find, and I was terrified to see what could happen to destroy that bond. Instead, what I saw is that true love transcends all with a little faith in the unknown and unseen. True love knows no boundaries.
I honestly could not put this book down - thank you for another escape! I can't wait to see what you come out with next!

With Swan Loch, Randy Mixter has written a book that was hard to put down once I started reading it.

His plot, characters, and settings are so real that you are pulled into the story, visualizing everything that is going on in this small New England town.

After Sheriff Chris Hayward's wife is murdered, he makes finding her his life's quest. She has been whisked away to an alternate universe. When a young girl is found in Swan Loch, stating that she was brought here on the wind, Chris and his friend Emma must follow her to a place much like this Swan Loch, where Chris's wife Molly is alive and well. They must move quickly because the next murder is going to occur in less than twelve hours.Chris must see that that murder never happens.

I am looking forward to the next Randy Mixter novel.

I could not put this book down. The story just kept moving along without any real stopping point. One of the best books I have read. It is a very different story: romance, mystery and supernatural all rolled into one great story.
Sue Baier
I just had to stop and tell you that I read Swan Loch and in just two days. I am NOT much of a reader, but found your book extremely easy to read and very fascinating at the same time. Every time I had to stop for some reason, I could not wait to get right back to it. Well done and I loved every minute of it and loved the romance and the intrigue. Great concept and great book ! !

I have come to expect a lot from Randy Mixter's books over the last few years of his brilliant writing career. I remain a constant fan as he has never let me down. Randy, thanks for all the good reads but I think this one, Swan Loch, is truly your best. I don't know how you will top this one. I have seen on your blog though that you are going to be coming out with a Jake Stanton (character in Swan Loch) novel. I read the first few pages and that was a teaser. I want more!

Randy uses his same wonderful writing style to develop all of the characters in Swan Loch so that you feel like you know them personally almost immediately. Using this to his advantage he doesn't stop there but continues to build on the Swan Loch character's strengths and weaknesses to weave you into the story which takes many twists and turns throughout. There is a bond of love between two of the characters that one always dreams of. There is also a friendship bond between two of the characters that one always wishes for and the ending is absolutely unforgettable. It's the perfect novel for a book club because it welcomes much discussion as to it's content and meaning. I was drawn in immediately and wished it would have gone on for a lot more chapters. This is a book that is going places. Best seller list and a movie script, I hope. I am always hopeful.
