Review by: tony parsons on Sep. 26, 2018 :
1940, Charlevoix, MI. Lake Michigan. George Hansen (husband) waved to Mr. Alex Clark (father, billionaire) & Emma Lee Megan (12, daughter) aboard the Emma Lee (180’ yacht) as they came into the dock area.
Everyone was here for the Venetian Festival.

The Charlevoix HS marching band began playing “America, the Beautiful.”
Sally Thomason (Emily Compton’s daughter, artist/painter) was introduced to the 2 of them.
Later, Mayor Martin Holloway helped welcome guest aboard to see the fabulous restored yacht.
Other prominent guests are: Elizabeth Hansen (wife), & Mary Alice Gregory (Grosse Pointe).
The Coast Guard Cutter Acacia was docked down at the Coast Guard station.
Flashback: The Helm. Connor Harris (Emily’s BMF, Northwestern U), & & Emily Compton (Michigan St.) were going have dinner/drinks & go see a movie.
Forward, Emma Lee: Mary Alice had brought Alex a bottle of wine.
Sally brought him 1 of her paintings & introduced him & Megan to Gwen Roberts (41, Sally’s Art gallery partner).
Sally had promised to show Alex & Megan all the memorabilia & pictures of the historical Emma Lee.
Flashback: Johnathan McKendry (son/brother) was going to give Emily Compton (Connor’s GF) & Louise Kelly (Emily’s BFF) a ride in his Chris Craft boat clear up to Horton Bay.
Later that evening out & about he introduced the 2 girls to Catherine Hansen (George’s younger sister, Johnathan’s GF).
Connor Harris confronted Johnathan, it did not end well for him.
Luke McKendry (22, eldest son/brother) had been arrested.

Later Jonathan McKendry was also.
David Krupp (attorney) would represent him.

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.

A very awesome book cover, & great font/writing style. A very well written romance thriller book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great romance thriller movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. A very easy rating of 5 stars.
