Description

Her biggest dream was to become a mail jumper, not the key witness to a crime…

All Bailey wants is to join the elite crew of mail jumpers, fleet-footed kids who must leap from boat to pier to deliver the mail around a Wisconsin lake. She’s never done anything so daring in her life, but the hazards of wind and wave would be worth it to work alongside Captain Tommy. If she’d ever had a grandfather—or a family at all—she would have wanted him to be like Tommy.

But all her charts to success may end up in the drink when she catches a veteran mail jumper red-handed with a key to the police station. Only the night before, someone broke in and attacked a dispatcher. Is it possible that Baron, the most popular boy in town… is the villain?

Meanwhile, Police Detective Monica Steele learns that the case carries ties to a murder thought solved long ago, a suspect who’s been behind bars almost twenty years, and a cop she always knew was crooked to the bone.

Can they dredge up the truth before Baron catches on? Or will Bailey’s dreams for a perfect summer be dashed against the shore?

The Girl on the Boat is a prequel novella to the thrilling Mailboat Suspense Series. If you like hurricane-force plot twists, complex characters you can’t help but love, and a real-life setting that comes to life on the page, then you’ll love Danielle Lincoln Hanna’s enthralling tale!

    How thrilling to have a behind the scene look at Bailey’s life and dreams. The mystery part leaves you wanting more.

  2. Sam Petitto

    Danielle has done it again. I find myself looking forward to her next book in the Mailboat series before I’ve even finished reading the latest one.

  3. Nancy Diestler

    The Girl on the Boat draws you into a web of mystery and suspense. As the reader gets to know and love the characters, their lives become imbedded in the heart as their stories are introduced and unfold. I love reading more about my favorite characters, and hold my breath as Bailey tries out for the mailboat jumper position! Highly recommend!

  4. Kimberly

    This little gem of a book will give you an nice peek into the exciting world of a picturesque town, Lake Geneva. There are wonderful characters to meet and plenty of mystery to solve. If you haven’t dived in to the Mailboat series yet, this is a great starting point! If you are already a Mailboat fan you will love finding out more background on your favorite characters!

  5. Elaine Montgomery

    I’m usually not a big fan of prequels as they’re often just a way for an author to tell us things they haven’t figured out how to include in their novels. Danielle Lincoln Hanna is, however, not a run of the mill author and The Girl on the Boat is not your ordinary prequel.

    Setting the scenes for the rest of the series, this book introduces us to Bailey, Monica, and Tommy and the world of Lake Geneva. Even after reading the first three books in the series, I didn’t actually understand just how hard the job of the mail jumper is.

    The Girl on the Boat is a great introduction into the twisty mind of Danielle Lincoln Hanna and an all around great read.

  6. Susan

    The Girl on the Boat really whets your appetite for the rest of the Mailboat book series. Danielle Lincoln Hanna gives us more insight into three of the series’ main characters; Bailey, Tommy, and Monica; and leaves us with hints to the overall mystery. For readers of the Mailboat series, The Girl on the Boat is a great read while we wait for the next book. And if you haven’t started the series, this is a great place to start.

  7. Cynthia Koetterhagen

    I love the whole Mailboat series. I cannot wait for Mailboat IV in August.

    Too many unresolved issues. Not happy with it.

  12. Rebecca P.

    I received this book as a gift and just LOVED it. Danielle Hanna has topped my “favorite author” list for a while now and she never disappoints. Having read the other books in the series already, I was worried that this one would somehow seem cheesy or “less” than the others as I often find myself disappointed in other author’s novellas. That was certainly not the case here. What I loved is that if you have not read any of the other Mailboat books, this could be a great start. And, yet, having read the others, I was very happy with this story. It felt like a flashback in the current series and gave a great sneak peek into the storyline. And, just when I thought the story was over, Danielle managed to leave us with a little “twist.” This was a very good read and fabulous addition to the rest of the series. Can’t wait for more!

  13. Jill

    Loved it!
    Can’t wait for next book!

  14. Judy Jansen

    I loved reading this book that gave us a little more insight into the character of Bailey! I have loved this series and cannot wait for the fourth book in August!!!!

    Have read all the books in the Mailboat series and am hungry for more. Keep writing Danielle

  17. Mark Baumbach

    For those who have read the Mailboat series, this book is another gem. I could not put it down, like all of Danielle’s books.
    The storyline with Monica was especially enlightening. Buy it and enjoy!

  18. Sharon

    I really enjoyed this prequel to “The Mailboat” series. Since I have not read anything by this author before, I am a new fan. I immediately ordered the three book series and totally looking forward to enjoying more by Ms Hanna. Good character development, and made me care what happens to Bailey.

  19. Rebecca St. Dizier

    I loved it. It seemed short to me but I always want more😂😂😂

  20. Linda Mosier

    I loved it. I agree with Rebecca St. Ditzler. It was too short. I will read the others in the series as well.

    I just turned 82 this week, and I loved The Girl on The Boat. Can’t wait to get the next one. I read, read, read, lots of books, plus my bible through each year. My mom said I was born with a book in my hands. So I am really looking forward to reading the Mailboat series. Thanks, and God bless.
