Experience this gripping story of a family’s fight for survival and a terrifying reckoning from the deep.

The Review

Eighteen months after an accident that left her a paraplegic, Kate is ready to test out the new wheelchair-adaptable yacht as a step toward healing.

Author Holly S Roberts takes readers on an action-packed ocean adventure in Breach. As the story begins, Kate contemplates the state of her marriage, rocked first by the confession of cheating by her husband, Sam, and then by the car accident that took away her independence.

However, it’s their 5-year-old daughter, Ryan, who provides the glue holding the family together. Her inquisitive nature and desire to be helpful add flavor to the story.

What could go wrong with three people on a yacht in the ocean? Let’s just say this storyline reinforces my desire to stay safe on dry land. What begins as a random shark spotting turns into a nightmare.

The author ramps up the tension and suspense by progressively adding more complications. Waiting out a shark attack might sound like a smart idea as long as the sharks behave typically. What happens when a shark stalks the yacht?

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
