Description from amazon.com:

Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all.

Calia Reed wasn’t part of Owen’s plans. The beautiful British girl—on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James—made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn’t know anything about the life he left behind.

But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago.

And when Owen shows up at Anna and T.J.’s door with an incredible story to tell, everyone involved will learn just how much their lives are intertwined.

This is a sequel to Ms. Graves’ novel ON The Island (my review can be found https://ladeetdareads.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/review-on-the-island-by-tracey-garvis-graves/ ).  This novella, although a story onto itself, really should be read following the reading of ON THE ISLAND.  I had some issues with the first book that were totally not relevant with this book. Ms Graves did a good job of editing and research in this one.

I enjoyed reading about Owen Sparks who is mentioned in the first book and his story not developed.  Now we know all about the bones and who built the cabin in the woods.  This was a fascinating story that I read in one day. The writing is good and the details were well researched.  The romance was believable and the friendship between the three island characters rang true.  The glimpse of T.J. and Anna from the first book was fun.
