Afloat Blog Tour, Book Review and iPad Mini Giveaway

I have a new book to tell you about, Afloat by Erin Healy.  This is the first book I have read by Erin Healy and it will not be the last.  This was an action packed read filled with mystery, intrigue, supernatural, romance, and so much more!  Healy has a true talent for character development - you will find yourself loving some and not others though!  I was amazed at how she developed so many characters in such a short novel.  I loved getting back history on many of the characters past and how that contributed to the present picture of who they had become, especially Vance.  I was fascinated with his floating house design and his motivation and heart behind it.  And who doesn't love a good read that is redeeming?  To prevent any spoilers I can safely say that you will find some plot twists and turns with unexpected surprises and I do not think you will be disappointed!

About Afloat:

Who will you trust when dark waters rise?
Eagle's Talon is an architectural marvel-shining residential units afloat in a protected cove of the gorgeous Rondeau River. The project is nearly complete, partially occupied, and ready to make investors rich when a sinkhole gives way. Then torrential rains and a flood leave a ragged collection of builders, investors, and residents stranded in one floating building, cut off from the rest of the world.

They're bitterly divided over what to do next.

Architect Vance Nolan insists they should sit tight and wait for rescue.  Developer Tony Dean wants to strike out into the darkness.  And single mom Danielle Clement, desperate to protect her young son, Simeon, struggles to hold their motley band together.

Power failure, a pall of unnatural daytime darkness, explosions in the distance, then a murder ratchet tensions to a boiling point.  But Danielle's young son, Simeon, has spotted something strange underwater-beautiful, shifting lights in the dark water below.  In this watery world where everyone's secrets will eventually come to light, salvation may mean more than just getting out alive.

Another stunning exploration of the human spirit and supernatural possibilities from best-selling author Erin Healy.
