"Afloat" by Erin Healy

Eagle's Talon is an impressive new housing development on the water. While all of the buildings aren't finished, Building 12 is and actually has occupants. Suddenly, death and destruction become part of Eagle's Talon. What caused the crane's collapse? Is anyone safe? 

Vance Nolan is an architect who loves what he does most of the time. The developer of Eagle's Talon, Tony Dean, wants things his way no matter the cost, which causes problems periodically. When the crane disaster happens, he wants to affix blame without an investigation, while Vance wants the truth and to save lives. Not everyone escapes before the torrential rain and flooding cut off the project from the land. Danielle Clement is a single mother "hired" to sell units. When the crane hits their balcony and they fall into the water, her son Simeon notices some strange lights. What are they? Zeke, a blind man with a message, and his dog Ziggy, join the group and try help in any way possible. As darkness falls and the power fails, will people listen to Vance and his message that all who stay will be safe, or will they follow Tony and his command of leaving? Will anyone find out what really caused the disaster?

Erin Healy never disappoints me! Her characters and stories are always well written and developed, and draw me in quickly. This book also can make the reader think about topics like: selling out, compromise, faith, blindness, and truth. I really enjoyed the book and recommend it to readers who enjoy suspenseful novels. I received my free review copy from Litfuse Publishing in exchange for participation in the blog tour.

About Afloat:

Who will you trust when dark waters rise?
Eagle's Talon is an architectural marvel-shining residential units afloat in a protected cove of the gorgeous Rondeau River. The project is nearly complete, partially occupied, and ready to make investors rich when a sinkhole gives way. Then torrential rains and a flood leave a ragged collection of builders, investors, and residents stranded in one floating building, cut off from the rest of the world.
They're bitterly divided over what to do next.
Architect Vance Nolan insists they should sit tight and wait for rescue. Developer Tony Dean wants to strike out into the darkness. And single mom Danielle Clement, desperate to protect her young son, Simeon, struggles to hold their motley band together.
Power failure, a pall of unnatural daytime darkness, explosions in the distance, then a murder ratchet tensions to a boiling point. But Danielle's young son, Simeon, has spotted something strange underwater-beautiful, shifting lights in the dark water below.
In this watery world where everyone's secrets will eventually come to light, salvation may mean more than just getting out alive.
Another stunning exploration of the human spirit and supernatural possibilities from best-selling author Erin Healy.
