4 thoughts on “Mulligan’s Reach

  1. 5.0 out of 5 stars Romance and adventure set against a backdrop of a wild island full of secrets
    By Geoffrey West. Amazon Review
    Mulligan’s Reach will stay in your thoughts long after you’ve finished reading it. The heroin, feisty Alex McBride is recovering from a failed relationship when she inherits an uninhabited island off the Australian coast, where she goes to live with her best friend, qualified vet Jody. The pair are set to start a stud farm and the story begins when two handsome American brothers arrive with their horse, who is to service the stud farm’s mares. The scene is set for a conventional romance, but before long you realise this is a more complex book altogether, and the romance is far from straightforward. Mysteries begin, strange happenings to which there is no answer, and the tension mounts as these unexplained happenings become more and more lethal, leading to accusations, recriminations and even deaths.

    You cannot call Mulligan’s Reach a pure romance, because there’s a whodunit-type mystery within it, and you can’t call it a pure adventure story either, because at its bedrock is a romance. It is all these things: an exciting adventurous story, where the characters reveal themselves and find answers to what they’re looking for in the most unexpected ways, plus it’s a romance and a thriller too, with plenty of action and reaction and ever-present danger to life and limb. And don’t expect the excitement to tail off: its ultimate climax at the end is absolutely riveting, getting more and more exciting right up to the last page: you literally cannot put it down.

    The characters are interesting, lively and well portrayed, the plot is ingenuous and clever, and there are a number of surprises. More than anything it’s a very emotional book, and you really care about the characters. There’s the backdrop of the island with all its grittiness and beauty, the raging of the elements, while the details about the horses are all so vivid and lifelike that you feel as if you are actually there. And the unsung hero of the book is the trusty Land Rover, that gets Alex and her friends out of all kinds of scrapes: you can almost smell its hot oil, and see its battered metal and scored upholstery.

    Mulligan’s Reach. By Jennie Orbell.

    Cried real tears in some places, got angry at times and frustrated in others? This is a writer who engages your emotions, draws out your feelings, wrings them out and shoves them where you don’t want them. Horses, beaches, strange happenings, pain! People with broken lives, loving, hating, misunderstanding. The emotional strain is palpable. This is a humdinger of a story that will rock your senses. Alex will make you feel anger, despair, passion. Kane will hide his feelings, except for his horse. Is he as aloof as he seems? Jodie and Jack try to nudge the pair, are they doing right?
    Ghosts? Strange happenings on an even stranger island? The story is fast-paced with so many twists and turns, the reader feels ‘wrung out’ at times. But, it is all in a good cause. Read this book and find out what happens. You will not be sorry.
    As a post script. This is the third book I have read from this author, and with each book, I have not been disappointed.
