Review: Tracey Garvis-Graves "Uncharted."

5 hearts Review: Tracey Garvis- Graves "Uncharted."
Amazon UK: 


Tracey Garvis Graves - and Anna and T.J. - return in this companion novella to the New York Times bestseller On the Island

When twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all. 

Calia Reed wasn't part of Owen's plans. The beautiful British girl - on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James - made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn't know anything about the life he left behind. 

But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago. 

And when Owen shows up at Anna and T.J.'s door with an incredible story to tell, everyone involved will learn just how much their lives are intertwined. 

Review: Kirsty

If you loved On the Island there's no way you won't love this. 

This is the story of 'Bones'. Who he was and how he came to be there. Told through the eyes of Owen, somebody else who had spent a large amount of time on the island. Once again, I felt like I was right there with them all. 

I devoured every single word in a matter of hours. Being back in the world of that little island was beyond enjoyable. Despite the absolute horror that it caused three families, I couldn't help but find it comforting when Owen described his time there. 

Even though this book was just a novella and relatively short, I felt so many emotions whilst reading. I went from feeling complete joy to absolute devastation, with tears and all. Tracey Garvis-Graves is extremely talented and I'll be sad to say goodbye to this series:

"Why are you crying?"
"Don’t worry, they’re happy tears. There’s nothing I love more than a good happy ending."

I rated this book 5 Hearts
