Kate Miller has been having recurring dreams about the same man... a dead man. Will Hawke, to be exact, a celebrity who died long before Kate had any reason to pay attention to celebrities.

Though the night-world she enjoys with Will is a siren song lulling her towards sleep, the intrigue of Kate's waking world goes up several notches when Ty Watts breezes into her life, a tall, dark stranger with looks that would set a thousand housewives free.

The problem: his smile hides a secret that could be dangerous.

Kate's dreams gnaw at the very idea of what is real. She must negotiate the knife-thin edge of reality vs. dreams, solve the mystery of her nightly rendezvous with Will, and either save him or lose herself forever in the seductively dangerous world he inhabits.

A Boat Made of Bone is a love story that spans worlds, generations, and reaches beyond death into the realm of fantasy.


Ugh. I hate when a book doesn’t do it for me. I love authors and I want to love all their stories. That being said, this book just wasn’t working for me. I was super intrigued by the title, premise and cover. I just didn’t connect with the characters the way I was hoping to. The story was a bit convoluted. I was having trouble keeping track at times.

Okay, okay, here’s the deal. Kate has a life, right? Then she goes to sleep at night and is transported into another world where she also has a life… a lover to be more specific. And, of course, he has secrets all his own.

The story ideas were all interesting and I really did like the concept, I just couldn’t connect with the characters and it made it difficult for me to follow the rest of the story.

I gave this book 2 stars and pair it with Absinthe, because girlfriend had some freaky sh*t going on!
