Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Watkins artfully captures the distinction between reality and fantasy. Indeed, her depictions of Kate's hallucinations are terrifying, and it's often deliciously unclear whether the protagonist is experiencing a mental mirage or a clearheaded epiphany. The author builds the suspense in a cautious manner, meting out just enough information to keep the tale moving forward, but not so much as to lessen the gripping drama of the story ....An engrossing and suspenseful mystery." ~Kirkus Reviews
                                                                       ***
"This fictional work is truly a page turner and keeps the reader engaged from the first page to the last. The plot is skillfully crafted, as the author blends present day events with those from the past. The development of each character is fascinating to watch; it is difficult to ascertain who has good intentions or evil purposes towards Kate until the last chapters. There are many twists and turns throughout this exciting story. Author Linda Watkins has written a riveting mystery suspense story in Storm Island: A Kate Pomeroy Mystery. As the title indicates, this book is to be the first in a series of Kate Pomeroy mysteries on Storm Island - and we look forward to the next edition!" ~ Deborah Lloyd for Readers Favorite
                                                                       ***
"...An intense and intriguing puzzle, Storm Island by Linda Watkins is a thrilling and suspenseful mystery novel that you can't put down once you pick it up. Complete with a complex plot, a fascinating story line, and wicked antagonists, it is a stunning story that keeps the reader enthralled until the very end ... With all the psychological twists and turns, this captivating novel reminds me of a cross between a Hitchcock film and a Phyllis Whitney novel. It is an exciting tale of deceit and betrayal, with just a small hint of the paranormal, and will delight those who enjoy a good psychological thriller." ~ Susan Sewell for Readers Favorite
                                                                        ***
"Storm Island is a real treat of a novel, filled with chills, historical mysteries and a compelling heroine. I seriously can't remember enjoying a Gothic novel as much as I did this book, and I have always enjoyed the genre. Storm Island: A Kate Pomeroy Mystery is most highly recommended." ~Jack Magnus for Readers Favorite
                                                                       ***
"Storm Island is the first book in a Kate Pomeroy series of mysteries, and opens with flashing lights and a dead body...Further complicating matters is an unexpected romance and mystery on the island, which places Kate in both desirable and dangerous positions as she assesses her talents, reactions, history, and present-day threats. Linda Watkins' ability to draw readers into a gripping mystery that involves psychological inspection, suspense, and drama rests firmly on strong characterization and Kate's first-person observations...an absorbing mix of cozy mystery with a dash of romance and psychological inspection creating just the right blend of suspense." ~D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review 
                                                                      ****
"Author Linda Watkins crafts a fast moving, engaging plot, filled with twists and turns. Kate Pomeroy is a determined young woman caught in a frightening situation, yet the narration is good-natured and an enjoyable read. Blending history with a touch of magic, "Storm Island" is full of intrigue and mystery, with hints of future stories to come."~Janice Martin for InD'tale Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars This mystery with a lot of psychological suspense will twist your mind this way and that!
By MikiHope on December 16, 2018
This mystery with a lot of psychological suspense will twist your mind this way and that! What a roller coaster ride!!

Kate is a resident in a hospital and is also having a kind of affair with one of the surgeons. She decides to take a quick nap before a surgery she is going to be helping with when she hears a conversation between one of the doctors and an unknown stranger. Her "friend" brings her a Latte. In the operating room Kate gets delusional and is admitted to the hospital.

They want to admit her to a psych hospital--luckily her Father-a bigwig in the hospital system-wants her to have more days. He then decides to send her to his sister-a well known psychiatrist. She decides that Kate needs rest and relaxation and brings her to the summer house Kate hasn't been to since the night her Mom died.

What happens from this point forward is surreal and you will not be able to put the book down until you have finished it!

And yes, I will continue reading this series!!
