Publisher's Summary

Former marine Maggie Riley has just set sail for the Caribbean, ready for a little R&R on her 40-foot boat before starting a work assignment in Dominica.
Then Cole Thatcher appears. Sexy, naked - and possibly nuts - Cole turns out to be an archaeologist searching for the wreckage from a World War II submarine that may hold millions in gold coins and classified documents from a powerful inner circle of the secret society Skull and Bones. Maggie has enough skeletons to deal with, but when she learns her own past may intersect the Bonesmen’s, joining Cole in the hunt for the sub may be the only course to uncover a hidden truth.

Entertaining Adventure Book Under 10 bucks

Good solid effort. Interesting, holds reader's interest the whole way. Believable characters, excellent setting, fairly predictable plot, though well-done.

The time/POV shifts in the story were occasionally hard to follow. One paragraph would follow another (not a chapter break), but the action was days later. Or the same day, different locale.
I didn't like the ending. Contrived cliffhanger, the kind intended to force you to read the next in the series to find out how the hero or heroine gets out of an impossible situation. However, as the next book is only $7.34 so not such a big issue this time.

All in all the book was an entertaining adventure book without excessive gore or sex scenes.

Angela Dawe did a really good job with the delivery of the story. Some people didn't like her narration but I have to disagree I liked her reading.

Narrator hits the wrong note

What did you love best about Circle of Bones?

I like the story very much


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was tense at times, and, this being a new author to me, I couldn't be sure the good guys and gals would survive to the final page.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Dawe?

Sadly, just about anyone. The narrator started off with far too much tension so that suspense didn't have a chance to build. Her odd intonation didn't help, either.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction.


Any additional comments?

The second book in this series is also narrated by the same individual so I won't be purchasing it as an audiobook.
