Look the Other Way Reviews
A romantic thriller with some great twists and turns.I am not a sailor but have enjoyed time on the sea with a very capable captain at the helm. It was clear throughout the book that there was a very capable sailor writing the story who knew their way, not just around a boat and the Bahamas but also a romantic thriller.The main characters were everything that a romance needs. Attractive, feisty and independent heroine, Shannon Payne who has some very good reasons for taking a break from her life, for some much needed time to think and consider her future. A good-looking and rugged hero, Jake Hunter who seems to be hiding a secret from his past, and who is desperately trying to keep his eyes of the bikini clad Shannon who might just put a dent in his resolve to remain single and celibate.Shannon’s aunt Debi is on a mission to unravel the mystery about her husband Bobby’s last sailing trip. It seems that wherever the boat with its occupants anchors in the exotic Bahamas, the mystery deepens with dangerous manipulative female hitchhikers, and a much disliked yachtsman who likes to help himself to expensive keepsakes. Add in Debi’s excitable little dog and you have all the ingredients of a great adventure.The locations from the Florida coast to the various yachting havens in the Caribbean are authentic and clearly well researched. Whilst the appeal of the nomadic life sailing these waters was apparent, so was some of the darker elements of this lifestyle.One of the clever elements that the story of a troubled boy and teenager that is told in the background.. is it Jake or someone else? As Shannon’s brother joins the crew and seems at odds with everyone, it raises more questions about both their backgrounds.Who are Shannon and her aunt to trust, and will they discover the truth behind the loss of Bobby? As the feelings heat up between Shannon and Jake she is knows that she must discover the truth if she is to find true happiness.. Oh and look out for the ex-fiancee who decides to confuse the issue even further by turning up uninvited.I enjoyed the book very much. I escaped to the warm waters of the Bahamas with Kristina Stanley at the helm and found myself captivated to the end. Not my usual genre, but there was plenty of excitement, mystery and action to keep any reader happy. With the cold winter nights drawing in I recommend you curl up by a fire and escape to the islands.
Ms. Stanley has crafted a compelling mystery filled with betrayal, secrets, deaths, unresolved family issues and—of course—romance. I immediately connected with both protagonists, Shannon Payne and Captain Jake Hunter, and couldn’t read fast enough to find out what awaited them in this well-plotted, character-driven novel. I recommend setting aside uninterrupted blocks of reading time; you won’t be able to put this book down. Next, please!
Past secrets make for deadly stowaways when amateur sleuth, Shannon Payne, cruises her way into the Bahamas…and the murky waters of lies and betrayal. Bestselling author, Kristina Stanley delivers an intriguing psychological mystery, with a big splash of romance. Look the Other Way? You won’t be able to put this page-turner down.
When Kristina Stanley takes you sailing, hold on tight. Look the Other Way whips up a storm of suspicion and intrigue in deceptively tranquil Caribbean waters. Stanley writes characters who will capture your heart, fire your anger, make you doubt, and keep you wondering until the end.
I really enjoyed this book, especially because it takes place in the Bahamas.
What I've enjoyed about my New Year's Resolution to explore social media, is coming across authors new to me. Kristina Stanley is one. "Look the other way" had me on the edge of my seat for most of the book, with the author's clever use of suspense. She drops in pinches of mystery about most of her characters at unexpected moments, so that we never really know if anybody is who they truly are. Shannon - the main female character - was the only one I trusted throughout. Was her Aunt, Debi, telling the whole truth about the death of her husband, Bobby? Who is the child that Stanley introduces at regular intervals (interestingly, in the present tense, as if to try to explain this person's strange, present behaviour). Only about 3/4 of the way through, are we more sure of his identity. Who is the killer? Is there a killer or was it an accident? There is a fog of doubt, like a sea mist, throughout this very clever story. All this is set against the backdrop of the Florida coastline and Caribbean, its casuarina trees, creeks and bars at the stop overs. "Being out here changes people." The author herself is a proficient sailor who lived on a boat for long spells and I enjoyed the on-board descriptions. There is romance - not sickly sweet( and we are never completely sure about the main male protagonist, Jake), a cute dog named Peanut/Piddles (read the book to find out why), adventure and intrigue on the high seas - all carefully stitched together by a talented author always in control of her plot. I enjoyed this book and will look up her others.
