On the Island - Tracey Garvis-Graves 3 1/2 stars This is a debut novel by Tracey Garvis-Graves.She has talent and I look forward to watch her grow as a writer.My only issues were a few overly convenient and silly plot devices. the suitcases washing up on shore with all the right stuff, the dolphins, etc. It all read like the situation wasn't as hard as it truly would be. But I remind myself that something had to happen otherwise it would have been like watching the movie "Castaway." That said, every time I had to put the book down, I found myself thinking about Anna and TJ.They were sweet and kind and their love story was a pleasure.Some have mentioned the controversy with the age difference and I felt it was perfectly handled.I never once felt like it was weird for them to be together.I enjoyed this story.
