Some things are better left alone…

After Ethan Hodges discovers an undersea cemetery just off the beach of Pelican Bay, South Carolina, he seeks answers from a grandfatherly fisherman named Captain Shelby. The captain wants the past to remain buried, and he warns Ethan to stay away. But Ethan doesn’t listen.

Ethan’s best friend and secret love interest, Morgan Olinsworth, joins in the investigation, unearthing intriguing secrets about the mysterious fisherman. When Captain Shelby is suspected of murder and disappears, a manhunt ensues, revealing a truth that unnerves everyone in Pelican Bay.

About The Author
Jesse Giles Christiansen is an American author who writes compelling literary fiction that weaves the real with the surreal. He attended Florida State University where he received his B.A. in English literature. His newest novel, “Pelican Bay,” focuses on a very old fisherman, Captain Shelby, and the mysterious happenings linked to him surrounding a nosy, sea-battered beach town (release date: July 20th, 2013, Imajin Books). One of his literary goals is to write at least fifty novels, and he reminds himself always of something that Ray Bradbury once said: “You fail only if you stop writing.”

My Review:

Pelican Bay held my attention!  Ethan had grown up in Pelican Bay and loved the water – when he was young played along and in the water.  He met Captain Shelby who thought of Ethan as a son.  One day Ethan mentioned to Captain Shelby he wanted to  visit the stones jutting out of the water – but Captain Shelby told him it was a dangerous place and stay away. He couldn’t stay away and found out that it was an under water grave site with names craved into some of the stones.  He wanted to investigate who’s under water graves they were so he in listed his friend Morgan to help.  She worked at the local library.   What information did they find? What happened to Captain Shelby?  You will need to read Pelican Bay to find out.
