EDITORIAL REVIEWS:

“Fans of Watkins’s MATEGUAS ISLAND will welcome this solid sequel…Watkins smoothly integrates the paranormal with a complex family drama.”

~ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

 

“This is a quick-paced story portraying a wide range of human emotions, deadly supernatural forces and ancient Native American beliefs that may help the characters survive the ordeal in store. It explores the depths of love and loss, dedication and defiance, innocence and desire – all in spite of the threat of losing everything. This is supernatural fiction at its best with a hint of coming-of-age enlightenment to appeal to younger readers as well as readers of all ages.”

~ Melinda Hills for READERS’ FAVORITE

 

“The real power in Return To Mateguas Island lies not so much in its inclusion of supernatural rituals as in its exploration of simmering emotions that lay just under the surface…Thus, its power and strength are most evident in its explorations of interpersonal relationships…the supernatural force described serves as a catalyst for events; not the end-all of these explorations. And it’s the centrifuge of a whirlwind of emotional forces that swirl around all involved in the backdrop that is Mategaus Island and its mystical heritage … the compelling draw of the island and its mysteries create suitable devices for a novel that excels in emotional interconnections with a dash of supernatural suspense added in for good measure.”

~ D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer, MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

“The use of lore and characters from Native American tribes is rendered beautifully, with the honor and respect so often overlooked in contemporary books … Though it’s the second in a trilogy, this tale has a satisfying beginning, middle,and end — a journey readers won’t soon forget and one they will want to continue until all their questions are answered”

~Julie York for InD’Tale Magazine, February 2016.

“Return to Mateguas Island by Linda Watkins was a gripping read … Excellent storyline, excellent characters in an all-round thrilling read. Linda’s attention to detail is second to none and the book is very professionally written. Loved it!”

~ Anne-Marie Reynolds for READERS’ FAVORITE

 

“Linda Watkins’ contemporary dark fantasy, Return to Mateguas Island: A Tale of Supernatural Suspense, is well-written and fast-paced. While this is the second book in Watkins’ Mateguas Trilogy, the author gives enough background to enable it to stand on its own, but the first book, Mateguas Island, is as marvelous, dark and brooding as this one is, and I’d recommend starting from there …The Indian folklore that serves as the basis for this trilogy is so compelling, and Terri’s interactions with Charlie, the elder Indian at the museum were powerful and intriguing … Return to Mateguas Island: A Tale of Supernatural Suspense is absorbing dark fantasy, and it’s most highly recommended.”

~ Jack Magnus for READERS’ FAVORITE

RETURN TO MATEGUAS ISLAND is the second full-length novel in the MATEGUAS ISLAND TRILOGY.

About the Author
Linda Watkins

Born in New England, Linda Watkins’ family moved to Michigan when she was a child. But her east coast roots remained strong and, each summer, she journeyed back to visit relatives in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine. Her favorite place to visit was a remote island, accessible only by boat.

When Linda graduated from college, (Carnegie Mellon ’70), she relocated to San Francisco Bay Area where she lived and worked for thirty years. But the allure of that special island remained strong and, in 2006, she packed up her four dogs and belongings and fulfilled her dream, moving to Chebeague Island, Maine (year-round pop. 350).

She lived there for seven wonderful years and, while a resident, she penned her award-winning novel of horror and suspense, MATEGUAS ISLAND (published in April of 2014). In December of that same year, she published the sequel to MATEGUAS, aptly titled, RETURN TO MATEGUAS ISLAND.

Today, she resides in Western Michigan and is at work on the 3rd full-length novel in the Mateguas Series, GHOSTS OF MATEGUAS.
