The Emerald Isle

   Need a good summer book??  Look no further than.... The Emerald Isle

   I may be a little biased in my review of this book, since my sister wrote it... but nonetheless I think it is important to talk about this amazing read!  If you havent had a chance to download and read this book, please do so ASAP...
   You can get it here from Amazon... or from Barnes and Noble... or here on Goodreads...

   This book is an excellent mix of romance and suspense with incredible twists and turns that keep you from being able to put this book down!  The main character Audyn is a confident young girl who needs to get away from her life in New York.  Far away from her cheating ex-boyfriend, her fighting parents and her deliquent brother who is constantly getting into serious trouble every time he turns around.  Audyn decides to call in a favor with their family friend Mr. Riche and work as a lifeguard on his resort island.  All of her rules for the summer fly out the window with the introduction of Tristan and Levi - two intriguing boys whose mysterious lives draw Audyn away from her desire to have a "boy-free" summer.  She can't help but be drawn to these mysterious boys who are each others enemies.  Audyn breaks almost every rule that Mr. Riche has for his resort island which could cost her everything.  Suddenly Audyn realizes that she is in the middle of a family feud between Tristan and Levi's powerful families.  What's she to do once she realizes she needs to pick a side and her life will be changed forever?  Read the book to find out!

   There are great characters throughout the entire book.  Audyn's boy-crazed, gossipy, hotel receptionist roommate Molly.  Tristan's adorable and precocious little sister Linley.  Tristan's brother Flacon who thinks he is Mr. Rico Sauve.  Mr. Riche the resort owner who is also a father figure to Audyn while she is on his island and many other characters!

   This book is so great because it isn't obviously predictable.  I wondered what was going to happen next and was always surprised by what actually ended up happening.  The character development, plot and scene descriptions are truly incredible, you feel as though you are a part of the story, like you are right there with them as the story unfolds.  It is the perfect summer read!!!

     If you would like to read Kate Hinderer's first book called Aurora Undefined, you can find it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Goodreads as well.  This is another great book of Kate's, but it is definitely a tearjerker.  If you would like to follow Kate and be updated on her next book, follow her blog: Kate Hinderer Writes

Congratulations Kate on your second book, I couldn't be more proud of you!!!
