Wreckage by Emily Bleeker

wreckageThis reads a little like Lost mixed with Castaway mixed with Days of our Lives. Lillian and her mother-in-law, Margaret, win an all-expenses-paid vacation to Fiji courtesy of a yogurt brand. While on the promotional trip, the two women, the pilot, a flight attendant, and an executive from the yogurt company go down in their chartered plane. Several of the passengers survive and make it to a small island. Several others do not. When the survivors are rescued a few years later, the coverups and lying begin.

I enjoyed this book, although I could see a few of the big secrets coming a mile away. It was a quick read and enjoyable, but I did wish a few of the characters were a bit more developed. I also craved a different ending, but that’s just personal preference, I think. Still, I’d recommend it, particularly as a good beach read.

This was a Kindle First promo for February and I read it for book published this year. You can get it for $1.99 for the rest of the month :)
