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.
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.
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.
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.
