About The Book:
Olivia Hamilton is married to the love of her life, Dean, a charismatic pilot who flies private jets for the rich and famous. But when he vanishes over the Bermuda Triangle, Olivia’s idyllic existence unravels. After years of waiting, Olivia must eventually let go of the fragile hope that her beloved husband might still be alive. Melanie Brown is a particle physicist who spends late nights studying the Bermuda Triangle. But her research interests falter when her mother dies in a tragic accident. Struggling to reboot her life and career, Melanie begins a forbidden love affair with her therapist. When a shocking discovery shows Olivia’s and Melanie’s paths are intertwined, it casts Dean’s disappearance in a new light. The two women’s strange connection threatens to unlock secrets that will change everything Olivia thought she knew.
This story is told from three points of view...Dean, Melanie and Olivia. We also have a timeline that goes from 986 to 2017. I know it sounds a tad confusing but trust me, the author does this brilliantly. There is also a lot going on in this story, many issues are tackled. There is grief, alcoholism and abandonment to name but a few. This book can also go under many genres, historical fiction, romance and mystery. I loved Olivia's chapters the most, I felt that part of the plot was the most realistic and entertaining. I had a really hard time with the chapters dealing with Dean and Melanie's relationship. I found it a little unbelievable and immature and also kinda gross. This was an okay read overall and deserves an ok rating.
With many thanks to NetGalley, Julianne MacLean and Lake Union Publishing for the giving of the ARC.
