Watkins knows how to write and how to involve the reader in her characters' lives. Another outstanding read.
This was a great, quick introduction to the main characters in the series. After I started reading, it was hard to put down until I was done. Then, I immediately started the second book.
(Matequas Island Book 1
By Linda Watkins
Bill and Karen Anderson share the proverbial ‘marriage made in heaven,’ until the unthinkable happens — and from Karen's point of view it is unforgivable. Yet it's not that simple. They have lovely five-year-old twin girls named Sophie and Terri. Is it fair that their young, previously happy lives change for the ‘sins of the father?’
It shouldn't have happened. Bill had a great job as lead engineer working on a new software package for a company could take him far ahead into his field. Karen's life was pleasant until Bill began keeping extremely long hours, missing dinners and time with his daughters. Their marriage begins to bulge from the stress, showing signs of tearing into irreparable threads. Both of them are trying to hold things together, they really are. But like in the Garden of Eden, temptations slither in, changing their lives, spiraling out of control and veering off into an entirely different direction.
Author Linda Watkins writes a fast-paced, compelling prequel to her outstanding ‘Matequas Island’ series. Will Bill and Karen be able to rebuild their lives on this tiny mysterious island in Maine? Readers will want to read the next two books in this wonderful series to find out.
Micki Peluso, author of . . . And the Whippoorwill Sang
This is a story filled with mystery and Native American folklore.
This story is well written with a steady build up to a suspense filled finale.
You get to know the characters really well, well enough to either love them or hate them.
Either way they pull you right into the middle of the story with them.
You will shout out, laugh, and cry with the characters.
A very well earned 5* for Linda Watkins.
I look forward to reading more of her work.
Growing up, I had to watch my mom go back to work to bring the household onto stable ground. My parents grew apart and our house was foreclosed, and Linda Watkins relates all of that in her story.
It was interesting that one secret (Bill's secret) started the story, and another secret (Karen's secret) ended it. And the end . . . that was shocking. No doubt it hints at something more sinister to come.
