Fraiser Island was a fast paced page turner. The story centers around George Hudson and Rachel Whitney. George is on a the very remote Fraiser Island. He is there with Pierre Belanger and Ron Davidson. Ron's assignment on the Island is up and he is being replaced by Rachel.
Rachel and George each have their reasons for being is such a remote location. Dealing with past hurts is a big part of that. Their attraction is instant but each batton-down-the-hatches on their feelings. George is not mean per-say but not overly friendly.
Rachel really tries hard to get in his good graces. She is well trained but not afraid to be female. She and Pierre become very good friends. They have a good time together and Pierre slowly tries to bridge the gap between her and George.
George has not been honost about what they are really guarding. He finally clues her in. There is a lot that happens after this part in the story. You are not sure who the enemy is. There are hints but you keep turning pages to see what happens next.
I agree with the other reviewers that Susan gave us the perfect balance of romance and suspense. And I did love the last chapter. That is worth the whole book. Aaahhhhh!!!!!
The characters and emotions felt very real. She sucked you in on the first page and by the end of the book you've fallen in love with each of them and feel like you were part of their journey.
Get the book! It's a keeper.

This was a romantic and exciting adventure which follows Ensign Rachel Whitney on her first specialized assignment to a remote island in the Pacific, guarding classified secrets, with two other officers. She receives a cold reception from her commanding officer who finds her very attractive. They must learn to rely on each other when they are under attack. It was a book I couldn't put down. I have to order the next book, Finding Marie, which has the same characters in it. It doesn't hurt that it had a navy theme. I love to read about naval officers. Sigh!
