Book Review-Storm Island: A Kate Pomeroy Mystery (The Kate Pomeroy Mysteries Book 1)-Linda Watkins

Monday, December 17, 2018


This mystery with a lot of psychological suspense will twist your mind this way and that! What a roller coaster ride!!

Kate is a resident in a hospital and is also having a kind of affair with one of the surgeons. She decides to take a quick nap before a surgery she is going to be helping with when she hears a conversation between one of the doctors and an unknown stranger. Her "friend" brings her a Latte. In the operating room Kate gets delusional and is admitted to the hospital.

They want to admit her to a psych hospital--luckily her Father-a bigwig in the hospital system-wants her to have more days. He then decides to send her to his sister-a well known psychiatrist. She decides that Kate needs rest and relaxation and brings her to the summer house Kate hasn't been to since the night her Mom died.

What happens from this point forward is surreal and you will not be able to put the book down until you have finished it!

And yes, I will continue reading this series!!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

From award-winning, USA Today Bestselling Author, Linda Watkins, comes a new contemporary gothic series to chill your bones and warm your heart.

A body found hanging from the ceiling fan in the tower room of the old manor house on Storm Island.

For nineteen years, Kate Pomeroy has suppressed that memory. A second-year-resident in surgery, she thinks she has her life under control. But a curious conversation overheard while taking a catnap launches her on a descent into a world filled with nightmarish visions that cause her to doubt her own sanity.

Sent to Storm Island to rest and recuperate from an apparent breakdown, Kate is forced to come to grips with memories of the summer her mother died as well as new terrors that plague her mind. Even the blossoming of an unexpected romance with islander, Jeremy Bradshaw, cannot keep her fears at bay for long.

The discovery of a strange little silo, hidden deep in the woods, spurs Kate to action as she tries to unravel its mysteries. But is the silo real or just another illusion created by her tortured mind?

Storm Island, A Kate Pomeroy Mystery, is the first book in a series of mysteries taking place on Storm, a remote island off the coast of Maine.
