Summary

From the bestselling author of These Tangled Vines comes a gripping novel about one woman’s search for answers when her husband vanishes in the night.

Olivia Hamilton is married to the love of her life, Dean, a charismatic pilot who flies private jets for the rich and famous. But when he vanishes over the Bermuda Triangle, Olivia’s idyllic existence unravels. After years of waiting, Olivia must eventually let go of the fragile hope that her beloved husband might still be alive.

Melanie Brown is a particle physicist who spends late nights studying the Bermuda Triangle. But her research interests falter when her mother dies in a tragic accident. Struggling to reboot her life and career, Melanie begins a forbidden love affair with her therapist.

When a shocking discovery shows Olivia’s and Melanie’s paths are intertwined, it casts Dean’s disappearance in a new light. The two women’s strange connection threatens to unlock secrets that will change everything Olivia thought she knew about her marriage, her husband, and most importantly, herself.

Full of spellbinding twists and turns, Beyond the Moonlit Sea is a vivid, emotional novel about the stirring power of love lost and found—and the incredible strength of one woman who fights for happiness in the wake of tragedy.

Critic reviews

“I started this twisty, page-turning, five-hankie tale and didn’t stop till I was through. The multidimensional characters are artfully drawn, and you care, really care, what happens to them. The end was a bombshell, satisfying to the bone.”—Tanya Anne Crosby, New York Times bestselling author

Beyond the Moonlit Sea brilliantly intertwines myth and science to create a stunning story full of romance and intrigue that had me on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last. Julianne MacLean is a master storyteller, and this riveting page-turner might be her best work yet.”—Suzanne Redfearn, #1 Amazon bestselling author of In an Instant

“The Bermuda Triangle is a fitting backdrop for Beyond the Moonlit Sea: a vortex of love found and lost, mistakes made and buried, and secrets too deep to let go. Julianne MacLean has crafted an irresistible premise all the way to the satisfying finish.”—Jessica Strawser, author of A Million Reasons Why

Fantastic book! Loved it!

I usually do not choose romance because of the all too perfect relationships they describe. But this… this is just wonderful. The mystery woven in with all the mushy bits kept me interested throughout. Surprisingly, the mushy bits also contained real life types of love explained in beautiful writing. I would definitely recommend this book.

Not the Best, Just OK

The story is ok, but frankly, I had a difficult time getting into this one. The other two books I've read by Julianne MacLean were much more enjoyable and held my attention and emotion much better. That's why I read this one ... but ... I had to work hard to keep reading this one until about the middle of the book.

I found it tedious. So, while it's not bad ... assuming you like this genre it's just OK in my view. Why did I have a hard time with it? Well ... I found the characters pretty thin and when you don't warm up to the characters in a book ... the book just doesn't grab you. You may feel differently ... so good luck.

Decent

I love Maclean's writing. This one required a little more suspension of disbelief than her others, but still a decent journey with great narration.

Stunning storyline

Story starts out blasé, without much oomph to it, but hang on to your pants! All the curves and twists with a herring or two will blow them off before the story wraps. This isn't a fairy tale but a reflection of real life, flaws and all.
If a good romantic suspense that's non-traditional is what you're looking for, this is a must read. Don't let the lower number of reviews deter you. I'm very surprised by them.
Narrators did a good job. Unfortunately, not great. For me, that means the different characters are easy to differentiate. Other than the actual voices of the narrators, that was it. Maybe that was a mutually agreed in decision but makes for a more difficult and boring listen. I subtracted a star for that on preformance.
Overall, I recommend this story!

couldn't even finish it

This book started out with an interesting story line, then completely shifted to an unrelated group of people! I listened for several chapters but just could not relate to any of the newly introduced characters and the storyline was unbelievable. I finally just ended it and gave up, maybe the two story lines would have come together but it was too boring to wait for that to happen.
