UFO Skeptic- left wondering

Sample  an excerpt or buy
It was raining thick sheets of water. The sound was deafening as it hit the tiled roofs and slid heavily through the gutters to the ground. As I made my third cup of coffee for the morning, I was longing for a good book I could dig into, curl up in my favourite chair and lose myself in another world. It took me only a few minutes to find and download Lifeboat on the Kindle and I was set...

Like the biblical story of the "Flood", Earth is about to be destroyed by a natural disaster. Cass and Rhys are two of the one thousand humans taken on board the "lifeboat", an alien version of the ark--with the object of repopulating the earth when it's safe to return. I was blown away by this book. I honestly had not expected it to be quite as plausible as it is. I'm a UFO sceptic and I was pulled in from the first page. The plot with its surprising twists and turns kept me hooked. I read it in one sitting-- I had to find outwhat happened. I was gobsmacked by the ending.

But it isn't just the ingenious plot that delighted me.  Lifeboat has some stunning writing, beautiful prose and natural authentic dialogue. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a  rich  reading experience. Left me wondering.
