Uncharted, By Tracey Garvis Graves

Tracey Garvis Graves – and Anna and T.J. – return in this companion novella to the New York Times bestseller On the IslandWhen twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire 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.

If you are like me and loved loved LOVED “On the Island”,  than “Uncharted” is a must read for you. I fell in love with TJ and Anna, and I was really curious to find some answers behind some of the mysteries and unanswered questions from their stay on a deserted island in the Maldives.
This is Owen’s story of the island, which you come to find out intertwines with Anna and TJ’s story in a really interesting way.  Owen was not stranded on the island; he went there willingly in order to get away from the stresses of his life, family and business.  When he wanted interaction, he simply called his pilot and got a ride off the island to civilization. It’s on one of this off the island furloughs that he meets Calia Reed and her brother James.  He invites them back to the island, and just when things seem to be going right, disaster strikes.  This is where Owen’s story begins to tangle
with Anna and TJ’s, and you find out how a decision made by him had a direct impact on Anna and TJ.

I have to say, this book was just superb.  It was a wonderful add on to Anna and TJ’s story, and what was best about it was that it all made sense.  I’m not sure if Tracey had this back story in mind when she wrote “On the Island”, but if she didn’t, she pulled it all together incredibly.  I can’t recommend this book enough; you will read it in one sitting.  5 stars!
