Book Review-Afloat by Erin Healy

Supernatural With a Spiritual Twist

Afloat
by Erin Healy
HCCP Publisher
 
Vance Nolan, architect, wanted to build floating homes on the Rondeau River Cove for low income families.  He felt why not give them an affordable home in a beautiful setting.  He contacted his estranged brother for financial backing, which he refused.  In stepped developer, Tony Dean.  At first Dean lead Vance to believe he was on board with his plans, but soon realized Dean was developing high income floating homes.  Before the homes could be finished, multiple disasters struck, from sink holes, torrential rains, flooding and even a volcano eruption, putting the homes, the workers and occupants’ lives in jeopardy.   As the story continues, it takes on a supernatural tone, along with a spiritual twist.
Danielle Clement and her young son are residents of Eagle Talon, not because she can afford to live there but because she is using Tony to supply her and son’s needs….or is he using her?  Danielle's son Simeon is able to see things under water that others cannot see. Are they real or is it his imagination?  Who does Danielle turn to in this crises?  Which man can she trust?  All of these questions are answered as you turn the pages of this novel.
 
I am not a fan of the supernatural; however Ms. Healy blended the supernatural and spiritual very well.  Her characters were realistic.  At times I felt the story waned.  I was somewhat disappointed in the ending, which could be due to a possible sequel?
All in all if you are a fan of the supernatural, like mystery, murder and romance this would be a great book.
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this ebook by the publisher, HCCP, through Net Galley  blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
