There’s not just the mystery to solve, but love to be found. Tucker falls for Josie, a local girl. They’re sweet together, but something isn’t right. Tucker has all sorts of suspicions about her. When the two of them find themselves in danger, new revelations, both the bad and the good, rise to the surface.
I really like Seckman’s storyline here. I’ve immensely enjoyed her other novels, but this one seemed more intense and complicated, and the ghost added a wonderful layer to the setting. I recommend this for romance and suspense lovers. Readers will fall in love with Tucker and Josie.
Ms. Seckman is a very talented writer, so everything she produces has a smooth down-to-earth quality that makes it a fast-reading pleasure. This book is no different. Well, actually it IS a "little" different. Personally, I think it's her best book to date. I mean, this book has got it all. Mystery... repressed memories... dangerous killers... a touch of the paranormal... and of course, romance. There are bad cops, good cops, a dysfunctional family, and the sheltering love of caring friends. The characters are well-developed, the dialogue is spot-on terrific, and the story's exciting, with an unexpected turn or two.
So, yeah, I liked it. I loved it. I can hardly wait to see what this writer has in store for us next.
Tucker finds himself in Ocracoke, North Carolina after doing research on the internet and reading a story about a restless spirit named Mad Mags that haunts family graveyards. It's a stretch, but Tucker takes a shot. He lands a job as a mechanic's assistant and it includes a small cottage on the premises.
Then he meets Josie McCoy, the niece of the man he's working for. She's beautiful, but standoffish at first. Although she's eccentric, Tucker can't help but fall for her, but her past haunts her. Eventually, the truth comes out. Can their love survive?
The ending is sad, bittersweet, and happy at the same time. As you all know, I don't do spoilers, so I'll leave the ending to your imagination.
This isn't the first book of Ms. Seckman's that I've read. She is a fantastic writer who puts her heart and soul into her works. The characters were all unique and had distinct personalities. No cookie cutter characters here. The story flowed well and was full of unexpected twists and turns. I'm a dreamer, so I had hoped one part of the story would turn out differently, but there are sad realities in this world.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in thrillers and mysteries with love mixed in. I'm definitely reading more of her books.
Grieving, looking for answers and needing a little space Tucker Boone begins the search for a sister he never knew existed. And that's after learning he also has a father of the blood and flesh kind and not the 'sperm donor' kind.
Elizabeth Seckman has a fascinating, suspenseful romance in her latest release, Swept Away. I read it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I loved the setting, Ocracoke, North Carolina. A place I want to visit, heck a place I'd love to live, except for the fact that I'm afraid of water, and it's an island. Oh well, but it does seem as if being there would bring mystery and adventure to any life.
Tucker Boone doesn't find what he's looking for; he finds a whole lot more - murder, a knife in the back, and a girl who intrigues him beyond all measure.
Swept Away is how you'll feel while reading it and coming back won't be your first desire when you're done, booking a visit to Ocracoke, North Carolina will be, though!
Well done, Elizabeth. Now I'm off to read a few more of your books!
