Reviews - What do customers think about Frasier Island (Frasier Island Series, Book 1)?
Fraiser Island should appeal to suspense and romance readers Mar 4, 2007
A military suspense set on the remote naval outpost of Frasier Island, Susan Page Davis' new book reminds me very much of one of my favorite suspense authors, Dee Henderson. Like Dee, Susan writes with the perfect balance of suspense, romance, and faith. Both internal and external conflicts kept me eager to turn the next page.
Ensign Rachel Whitney's first assignment is the one she had hoped for--serving under Lieutenant George Hudson on tiny Frasier Island in the North Pacific. Lt. Hudson's reputation is stellar, and Rachel knows she can learn many things from him that will advance her career in the Navy.
George Hudson has his own reasons for choosing to serve on such a remote island. While his assignment has lasted much longer than Navy protocol would normally allow, his exemplary performance and dedication to his country make him the perfect person to guard the highly classified secret hidden on the island.
However, George wasn't expecting a female ensign to replace one of his departing men, so his reaction to Rachel's presence is less than welcoming. But Rachel is determined to show that her skill and competence make her the perfect person for the job. And she relies on her newfound faith in God to help her overcome her quick temper, and to give her the patience and wisdom she needs to persevere--especially when her feelings for her commanding officer become more than she had intended.
When a Navy insider leaks the island's secret, George and Rachel find that they have few resources besides each other and their faith in God to thwart the plans of the enemy.
Susan Paige Davis begins Frasier Island with more internal than external conflict, but this is an asset to the story. By the time the action begins to build, I cared so much about the characters that I could hardly bear to put the book down!
Armchair Interviews says: A perfect blend of suspense and romance, Frasier Island should appeal to fans of both.
Romantic suspense that is truly romantic... Mar 3, 2007
Wow! This story packed some emotional punch. I enjoyed the romance and the suspense equally. That's very unusual for me because I usually prefer the romance, but the intrigue was fabulous! The romantic element and suspense were so intricately woven together that separating the two elements would've unraveled the entire story.
I loved George about as much as Rachel did! He was such a great hero in every sense. The longing they felt for each other was perfectly done. It made my heart ache despite the fact that they were fictional characters. At times I lost sight of that fact and just wanted to see them together. And that first kiss....ahhhhh. Very satisfying. Rachel was tough, but lovable and cute. I enjoyed experiencing her character growth along with her. Trust was hard for her to learn, but rewarding when she experienced the benefits of putting her life in God's capable hands.
In some ways this story had an exotic feel like the Hawaiian setting of Heitzmann's novel Freefall (which was awesome!) Frasier Island was different in that it had a touch of Gilligan's Island sentiment. Portions of the book had a real "castaway" feel. Rachel made me think of Maryann because she was fun and dainty, yet also tough when needed. George and Rachel were so isolated on that island that at times it made me get the shivers. And not knowing who the bad guy was for the last third of the book was quite exciting. Sure, there were little hints dropped as who it might be, but I felt the tension as they hid from the unknown. I loved how they had to protect themselves and stay on the offensive at the same time. Brilliantly done!
The secondary characters were also terrific. Pierre was a dream and Brian was creepy at first. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Oh, and the last chapter of Frasier Island was probably the best part of the story. Talk about great endings! This was no wall-banger. It made me want to sigh and grin like a fool. I loved this book!
