really, what a dreadful book! I had to delete it from my kindle immediately. Badly written and with no evidence of editing, this is the sort of book that gives e-publishing a bad name.

Found it hard to get into and gave up. I found the switching between past and present so confusing it was just too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good old fashioned southern mystery with a twist 17 April 2011
By lovestodive - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Shane Alexander, against his better judgment, allowed his ex-girlfriend to spend her honeymoon on his exclusive island retreat and she repaid the favor by running to tabloids with tales of ghosts and supernatural happenings. Now he has to try to salvage both his and Leigh Island's reputation by allowing one reporter, who he will hand pick, to spend a week on his island and write a story about it. Cassie Edwards is a reporter with Coastal Signal and is supposed to go on the junket with other reporters to the island so Mr. Alexander can decide which reporter will stay, but at the last minute she hurts her ankle and can't attend. In desperation she asks her roommate, Lila Fitzpatrick to go in her stead. Lila, under pressure agrees, and before she knows it, finds herself on a small boat heading toward Leigh Island. Little do Shane and Lila realize that what starts out as, what they both hope is a plan to move their lives forward, will change the course of both their lives. Will they be able to bridge the gap between time and solve the centuries old mystery of Leigh Island?

Island of Secrets is a hard book to categorize. Yes - it's about time travel, yes - it's a mystery, yes - it's a romance, but amongst all this there are dark and strange happenings mingled in with breathtakingly beautiful moments. You are pulled into the story, and are able to see and feel all the beauty of the old south in the 1700's, and then back you come to present. The transitions from present day to past flow well enough, though there are a few places where it could have been refined. The mystery is kept going throughout the book, and just when you think you may have solved it, another riddle is thrown your way. Lila is written with a bit of humor, and her reactions to the situations she finds herself in at times are funny, and are at other times heart breaking. Shane will make your heart flutter, no matter which period he is in. The secondary characters occur in both time periods, which I have to admit, confused me at times. The romance is intense but tastefully written. There are sex scenes but they lean toward the fade to black of the old historical romances of the past, instead of the blow by blow detail of most current novels, which works well with the story line.

I enjoyed this book and read it in an afternoon. The mystery kept me interested, the descriptions of the characters and scenes made it easy to picture all in my mind. The romance was at times intense, and at other times bittersweet. As I mentioned before, some of the time transitions were a bit difficult and I found a few places where I had to re-read a paragraph or two because I thought I had missed something. The first chapters of the book seemed to have more of these issues than the later ones. As a southerner myself, I enjoyed escaping to our rich past. All in all a good read for a lazy spring afternoon, I would recommend to anyone who likes a good time travel/mystery/romance to pick up this book and escape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, amazing, amazing book! 2 Jan. 2011
By AMANDA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Rarely do I have the time to read for pleasure; however, I came across this title and decided to download it on my kindle app on my phone, thinking that I would read it when I could find the time. I found a few spare minutes over Christmas break and decided to start on this book. Much to my surprise, I could not put it down. I read the entire book, from cover to cover, in one day! This book was that good. In fact, this book was excellent. I love the imagery used in the description of the characters and scenes. I felt like I was actually watching the events unfold. I will definitely make the time to read it again. I hope there will be more from this author very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating! 8 Dec. 2011
By Diana Harn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book captivated me from the first paragraph! I am a very busy person with little time to read pleasure books, most of my readings are leadership and business books, John Maxwell, Grant Cardone, etc... I wanted to read something for pleasure, the title caught my eye, then the body of the book, OH MY WORDS! The use of imagery, the choice of words and the flow of the story was so perfect! I actually felt I was there with the characters, I slept in that mansion, I heard the waves, I saw it all! INCREDIBLE body structure, suspense was fantastic, thank goodness not your standard "ho hum" formula writing where you know the rest of the story after the first few chapters. Highly recommend. Tasteful, no bad language, skillfully and artistically composed!

4.0 out of 5 stars New copy editor needed? 18 Mar. 2012
By Suze - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the content of this book. However, it was difficult to wade through the many, many punctuation errors (sometimes one or two on every page), as well as frequent mispelled words. There were even occasions where a sentence important to the storyline seemed to be missing. I hope that in the future this talented author will employ a different copy editor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read 6 Nov. 2011
By Iris Deorre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
At the beginning I was really into this book, it kept me intrigued and couldn't wait to know what was coming next, but then I did get a little frustrated going back and forth to the past and present. So it took me a little longer to read. Bear in mind this is only my opinion and I can't fault the storyline, I just got bored of the back and forth.
