Product Description

Book Description

When Olivia Mayfield arrived in Florida, hoping to escape her rich, powerful father and controlling ex-boyfriend, the attraction between her and Anders Erickson was immediate and mutual. But after the two are involved in a horrific motorcycle accident, Anders finds himself plunged into a terrible nightmare. The severely injured Olivia mysteriously disappears from the hospital, and her father will stop at nothing to prevent Anders from discovering the truth . . . In a desperate search against time that takes him all the way from his Florida home to the quaint New England town of Olivia's youth and to the wild, haunting African savannah of her birth, Anders is tested to his limits. And as he struggles to save the woman he loves, can he reconcile his own tortured past and, in doing so, save himself as well . . . ?

HASH(0x9865c6b4) out of 5 stars Great story keeping you in suspense! 19 Feb. 2013
By churchlady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book like the last Julie Compton book I read keeps moving. It is suspenseful through and through. It keeps you guessing about who did what. The ending is different and not what you would think. I definitely recommend it.

HASH(0x98cf8ebc) out of 5 stars Julie Compton rescued me into discovering a new author. 2 Mar. 2010
By Cheryl Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Anders and Olivia are lovers. While riding on Ander's motorcycle, a black Mercedes runs them off the road, leaving Olivia in a coma. Anders was lucky and only sustained a few cuts and bruises. Olivia's father won't let Anders anywhere near Olivia.

A few days later, Anders receives the news that Olivia has died. Anders has a feeling that Olivia is very much alive. He goes in search of Olivia. In doing so, Anders uncovers a deep, dark secret that involves Olivia. Can Anders rescue Olivia before it is too late?

I have not read Tell No Lies by Julie Compton, though I have that book on my wish list. After reading her latest novel Rescuing Olivia, I plan to purchase the book soon. This book kept my interest from beginning to end. The whole time I was reading this book, I was cheering for Anders.

After reading the concept for this book and what Mrs. Compton learned from her research made the thought behind the plot for Rescuing Olivia that more scarier and intriguing. As if I needed that because there was enough adrenaline in the story line to keep my heart racing. Julie Compton rescued me into discovering a new author.

HASH(0x98e74af8) out of 5 stars A "Flying-by-the-seat-of-your-pants" Thriller 27 Feb. 2010
By Jeffrey R. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Take two soul mates separated after being injured in a suspicious hit & run motorcycle accident, the main character, Anders Erickson, kept from seeing his love in the hospital by the powerful & rich family, and ultimately being told she is dead, and you are hooked into joining Anders in his search for the truth of what really happened to Olivia.

Compton creates engaging characters with depth that we can readily love or hate based on their roles as the mystery plays out. Many with deep seated issues that influence their behavior and choices as the story takes us first from Florida to Connecticut and ultimately Africa.

Rescuing Olivia is an excellent read that keeps you guessing and rooting for Anders as he rolls with all the punches delivered to him in his quest for the truth about what really happened to Olivia and why.

HASH(0x9865caec) out of 5 stars Unpredictable and Captivating 19 Jun. 2010
By Robin Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After reading "Tell No Lies" and then the reviews of Compton's latest novel, I just knew that once I started reading, everything else that I needed to do would become secondary. I've had "Rescuing Olivia" since it was initially published and just recently found a break in my schedule so I could read and enjoy without interruption. "Rescuing Olivia" exceeded every (very high) expectation that I ever had. Everything else on my "to do" list was suddenly not so important as I savored every word and every turn of the page.

The events and twists are unpredictable and captivating. Compton brings every character to life and every scene into full view....you know these people, you are there with them and you share every emotion.... I kept finding myself turning back the pages to re-read details that I did not deem significant at the time. I remember reading an early review that described Rescuing Olivia as a "modern day fairy tale". As I read the final pages, these words came back to me...it is every bit that and so much more. I couldn't wait to read the next page, the next chapter .....and then when I realized I had read the last, I longed for more.

HASH(0x9865cc9c) out of 5 stars Liberating a Damsel 26 Nov. 2012
By Raymond Gustavson, author of A Thirst for War - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Rescuing Olivia is a thriller that is absolutely hard to put down. From the beginning, I was drawn into the novel with Anders arriving at the hospital and attempting to gain admittance to the ICU to see his friend, Olivia, who is in a coma. He is stopped by her father who has ordered that no one except family -and this excludes Anders - is allowed to see her.

From there the author takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride that leads to Connecticut and ultimately Kenya where Olivia is the recipient of a memory-blocking drug. She cannot remember Anders, and that drives him crazy with fear for her safety.

The characters are three-dimensional and we get to see them from all angles, including both their good and bad points, and their strengths and weaknesses. The plot also is well-constructed with enough plot twists and turns to satisfy even the most ardent of mystery lovers. But the part that really got to me is the love Anders has for Olivia, and she for him, and the decision he must make: to give up his mundane existence in Florida for a life of exquisite adventure in Africa with the woman he loves.
