Afloat Book Review

Picture Credit

 Afloat by Erin Healy is a stand alone suspense novel that tricks the mind during a freak accident. 
About the Book
Dark waters are rising.
There’s sabotage lurking in the waters of Eagle’s Talon, an elite floating community designed by gifted architect Vance Nolan. There’s also something else in the water—a mysterious presence friendly to some and hostile to others. And when disaster strikes, not even the saboteur expects it to be the first in a series of crushing blows.
Stranded by a flood and surrounded by unnatural darkness, a limping band of residents, builders, and investors set their sights on escape. Single mom Danielle Clement will do whatever it takes to save her young son Simeon, but she doesn’t know who to follow: her charismatic lover and aspiring politician Tony Dean, who dotes on her and her boy, or the selfless Vance, who promises protection for everyone who stays with him—based on a vision and a faith she doesn’t share.
In this watery world where everyone’s secrets will eventually come to light, survival might have more to do with uncovering the truth than with getting out alive.(Goodreads)

My Review
 I love Ted Dekker and when I read that Erin Healy had written some books with him I was excited to read her latest. I had not read anything by Erin before so I really did not know what to expect. 
The first part of the book I was totally into. I was into the plot and the characters, but as the story went on and switched between multiple characters, I lost interest. I wish I hadn't but I did. There is a freak accident and each character has somewhat of a flashback. I liked the flashbacks more so than the main story line but even with all the twists and turns this was just not the book for me. I was not in suspense reading it, though I can see how others would enjoy this book.
