Tracey Garvis Graves - and Anna and T.J. - return in this companion novella to the New York Times bestseller On the Island
When twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all.
Calia Reed wasn't part of Owen's plans. The beautiful British girl - on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James - made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn't know anything about the life he left behind.
But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago.
And when Owen shows up at Anna and T.J.'s door with an incredible story to tell, everyone involved will learn just how much their lives are intertwined.
I read the book "On The Island" in 2012, it was one of my favorite books of 2012. How excited I was when I spotted this sequel to that book. WOW! I thought I get to read more about T.J. and Anna ten years later. And may I add I was not disappointed... The story filled in some details that the first book didn't have. I learned who built the little house before they were swept up onto the shore of "The Island" I also learned who the bones were they found in the cave, and how those bones came to be there. Many questions were answered that the first book didn't include.
It was a quick and fun book to read, and I liked it so much I awarded it 4 stars. It is a must read book for fans of "On The Island" If you haven't read "On The Island" yet, read it first before reading this book.
This book is part of my Nook library.
