    1. great book, loved every minute of it. proved that you don't have to be 25 and a Greek goddess to be the heroin ;) Saundra Kelly writes a great page turner .

    2. Saundra Kelley spun a wonderful mystery tale. She used the swamp region as another ominous but beautiful character. Sometimes the swamp became a protagonist and other times she portrayed it as an antagonist. Although, swamps are not my favorite places, I followed the story and the use of this background.I wish the author had brought Jake Collins in a little sooner. Once he appeared the real conflict (and the story) started. There are many times Kelley’s descriptions blew me away. I was surpris [...]

    3. I guess I expected something a little different than what this book ended up being; I guess I thought it would be more Lillian Jackson Braun and less Breaking Bad, at least for what sounded like a simple, pseudo-homespun mystery tale. It took me quite a while to get the gumption to finish it after I started it because of that - far too much news-like reality and not enough escapism. It was very well-written though, and had some great, if archetypical characterization.

    4. This is a great first book. I liked the action and the honest dialogue. I also liked the historical aspect of the plot line. This would make a great vacation book.

    5. I really enjoyed this book. The story moved at a good pace and turned into a real page turner. I enjoyed the setting for this book and the various characters.

    6. Suspense, yes…but an awful lot of thoughtful – and realistic – romance, too…Danger in Blackwater Swamp by Saundra Kelley is one of those interesting books that benefits from having an identity crisis. Its principle desire is, I think, to be a standard offering in the suspense genre. Instead it winds up being only partly a suspense tale (to the author’s credit, it will bring readers to the edge of their seats at multiple points in the narrative); with – or without – the author’s p [...]

    7. Danger In Blackwater SwampThe novel is full of unexpected twists. The characters are real people you probably know. They have depth, good points and flaws like all the rest of us. The antagonist is a character we can all love to hate.Meet the real Florida. The book is set in the rural North Florida Panhandle. There are beauiful segments on the river and elsewhere describing the unusual regional scenery and features. In addition to the main plot line the text also deals with real issues faced by [...]

    8. BJ Hathaway has came back to Florida for the reading of a will. The last thing she expected was to see her old flame Matt Walker again. BJ decides to take some time off from her work as a professor and comes back to Florida to do some restoration on a house owned by a dear friend who just passed away. Both in their late fifties they have a long history. In that history is a man naked Jake who is evil through and through. He has it out for BJ and nearly kills her. SPOILER ALERT. BJ survives but i [...]

    9. The story is about an anthropologist who inherits a house in North Florida, the previous owner was a good friend and there are some suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.One moment I was laughing out loud, next I was angry and my adrenaline kicked in. Then all of a sudden I felt like crying. It's a book that gets you hooked once you have been introduced to all the characters and you can't put it down. The main antagonist was well developed and is a character you will love to hate. I enj [...]

    10. I felt like there were a few things missing from this book. I wanted more about the anthropology/archaeology, and a bit more character development. The setting was quite nicely described, but I didn't really understand the motivations of most of the characters, especially Jake, the villain of the book, who was simply a deranged character with no real explanation as to why. B.J who was supposed to be the strong female lead, constantly needed to be saved by her love interest. I didn't really have [...]

    11. Not bad for a first novel. The plot was okay if not a bit obvious. But there were a few unknowns thrown in to keep you guessing at times. The description of the physical local was wonderful. Having never been in the part of the country where this book was set, I felt like it could almost envision myself there. I did find the writing style a bit difficult. It seemed to be a bit choppy, but was still readable. Maybe that's the difference between story telling and novel writing. I'm not sure. But I [...]

    12. I loved it. What I enjoyed most were the characters. BJ isn't your average heroine and is accustomed of taking control of her life and saving herself (sometimes with the help of a hound). We had a good understanding of why BJ did the things she did, regardless of if they were frustrating!She wasn't the only character I enjoyed, though. Jake Collins may have been the villain of this story, but he was one that you could hate to the core because of how great a picture Saundra painted for us.The plo [...]

    13. Wonderful read. The characters were believable. the romance was predictable and unneeded. The scenery was brought to life without slowing the pace of the story. I really liked this book
