BOOK REVIEW...Undertow (Dragonfly, #2) by Leigh Talbert Moore

"An incredibly powerful sequel to Dragonfly. I found myself riveted to the last page by the dept of feeling, loss, tragedy, and love in this gorgeously woven story. This is a definite must-read." --Jolene Perry, author of Out of Play

Falling in love will pull you under...

Bill Kyser has a plan to take the sandy farms of his hometown and turn them into a world-class tourist destination--and become a billionaire in the process.
Alexandra "Lexy" LaSalle has a plan to change her life by becoming a world-famous artist.
Meg Weaver has a plan to hold onto Bill no matter what she has to do.

Three friends, three dreams.
One fatal decision will change all their lives forever.

In Dragonfly, Bill Kyser gave Anna the three journals that held the story behind the powerful developer's seclusion and the damaged lives of his family members.

Anna hoped to find a way for Julian to know the truth, but as she digs deeper into the tragic events of the past, she realizes silence could be the only option.

Now she's in an alliance with the man she formerly feared. And if Julian finds out what she knows, she could lose for good the boy she's starting to love.

Wow.  Just Wow.

"Undertow" picks up where "Dragonfly" leaves off and there's no unnecessary recaps.  The story starts head on and man is it a rush!!

While the pacing was slow, I felt like I was tossed and turned as there was a lot going on in the plot and the characters.  "Undertow" is more of an emotional read and will take you on a roller coaster by the intensity of it all.  

You learn a lot of secrets (e.g. the truth behind Jack and Julian's births, etc.) and back stories behind the different characters' reasons and motives for what they did/do.  It felt like more of a predecessor of the series where the story unveils how the past actions transgressed into the present.

As a precaution though, there was a little sex in the book and majority of the story is enveloped in journal entries.  There isn't much interaction between Anna and Jack/Julian for those of you who  are more so interested in the love aspect of the story.

Over all, VERY interesting read filled with twists and turns.  Now I wantwantwant "Watercolor"!!! Can't wait till September! lol ;)
