Uncharted (On the Island #1.5) by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Tracey Garvis Graves - and Anna and T.J. - return in this companion novella to the New York Times bestseller On the Island

When twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all.

Calia Reed wasn't part of Owen's plans. The beautiful British girl - on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James - made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn't know anything about the life he left behind.

But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago.

And when Owen shows up at Anna and T.J.'s door with an incredible story to tell, everyone involved will learn just how much their lives are intertwined. 

I loved On The Island, so I was really excited that Tracey wrote a prequel, if you will, before T.J. and Anna's story. Owen is a wealthy dot com business man who just is fed up with his life; his family, his business partners and his job, he decides to leave it all and go live in solitary on an island.

When the story opens, Owen is standing on T.J. and Anna's doorstep. They don't know him, but they welcome him in when he explains who he is. He shares his story with them and it brings back a lot of memories for the happy couple as well as answers some of the mysteries they encountered when they were on the island.

This is a short story, at just over a hundred pages. But, I was fully invested after the first few pages. I was thrilled to get some answers from some mysterious questions from On The Island, namely who Bones was. A great companion novel that I just loved - soo soo good!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I thought this was a great companion. As you said, it answered a lot of the questions I had asked myself.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
