Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 
                                                                                                                                                    
"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    
                                                                                                                                                   
"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 - Author of Itsy Bitsy Spider and Hush
                                                                                            
"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  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                                                                              

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!

I'm giving this a three-close-to-four-star for a weird reason, that being that it was plotted well enough that there were several exciting directions to proceed towards identifying the killer and I was anxiously awaiting the author's choice of paths toward the reveal and hopeful capture.
Unfortunately he chose one from completely out in left field that removed the story so far from the realm of any reasonable possibility that the 77% of the book I had read prior to that point was all but spoiled.
I could have passed over the naivete of the characters and their lack of depth or development, the usually simplistic dialogue, and the "junior sappy" romance aspects in favor of a resolution that didn't call on the paranormal or supernatural. Up until that point, the killer's POV could easily have just come from a deranged mind, which to me would have been considerably more interesting. I could easily see some of the characters being bound over for a sequel, or even a prequel if their development was enhanced, and I would have looked forward to that. Still and all, I will give another Mixter book a try before opting in or out.
For those who are keeping score, here are the standings: (1) Paranormal/supernatural/magic component but not revealed until past the 75% point, so all is not lost; (2) Some profanity; (3) Some romance; (4) No explicit sex; (5) No graphic or grisly violence; (6) No child or animal abuse; (7) No religious or alternative lifestyle agenda or promotion; (8) Grammar and punctuation police, come ahead on - I know you'll find something.

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.

Not only did I receive this book from the author to give an honest review I also picked it up from amazon when it was free.

After reading the blurb I was like okay I will totally give this book a shot, it sounds right up my alley. It started off holding my interest but then the author through in the paranormal and it really was like um...what? I felt as though maybe if the paranormal aspect was put into the story a lot earlier than it could have possibly been believable within the story.
Also I couldn't connect with the romance between the two main characters. It didn't seem or feel real to me. I thought maybe it was a rushed type relationship. Being as the first half of the book they were "meeting" then bam they get married. Then the so called mystery comes into play.
The other dimension within the story it felt more of a science fiction. The story line did seem promising besides the flat characters and the other dimension thrown in. I would have liked more details with the murders, how exactly was the killer able to come into our world and do his dirty work? I felt as though this was left out for me.

If you like sci-fi books with a romance thrown in the mix then get this book. Would I read more by this author probably just to see if he has a different writing style than this book. It gets a 3 1/2 rating just for me finishing the book, enjoying a bit of the story line (where the killer is involved).
