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.

While the night-world she enjoys with Will beckons, her waking world has suddenly gotten intriguing. Ty Watts--a guy with looks that could set a thousand housewives free--just walked into her life. He's got a smile and a secret that begs to be found out.

But is Ty a distraction or a savior?

Kate's dreams threaten to take over. She must negotiate the edge of reality, solve the mystery of her nightly rendezvous with Will and either set him free 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. 


The cover was what captures my attention, but the description was what held it. This was a great start to a series that has a lot of potential to gain momentum as it continues. Grotepas introduces us to a very interesting concept and follows through with an enjoyable story.

I really liked the dynamic between all the characters. They fit well and complimented each other. Audra was a great companion for Kate to have and was one of my favorites. I must say that I would have liked to see more Ty, there is just something about him that I can’t get over. The beginning was a bit slow, but the second half of the story really picked up and held my attention.

Overall, the reading experience was enjoyable and I look forward to the continuation of this saga.
