When Tides Turn book review

6aecc4b82a42f8cb87e4aabb6bb83579    Tess Beaumont joins the Navy’s newly established WAVES program for women. (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service), hoping to convince people there is more to her than just a pretty face. Lt. Dan Amery is a determined man, focused on his job and doing his part in the war. The last thing he wants is a distraction named Tess. However, when she needs help rooting out a possible spy, how can he say no?

I have always enjoyed Sarah Sundin’s stories and as with the other books, I was looking forward to reading this one. I love how Ms. Sundin takes true events and weaves them into a novel. I always learn something new (to me) while reading her books. This ne is no different. I did not know about the WAVES program until this book. She makes history come to life.

Just a Kiss book review

1d6f33229112506b7aef32cc985d7e17    Seeing the love of his life fall for his brother had been hard enough to send Riley to enlist as a marine. Beau and Paige are no longer together and it all seems to be time to tell Paige how he feels. And then he is hit with a IED that leaves him an amputee. He feels he is no longer worthy of Paige’s attention.

Paige is more than ready to help her best friend recover and as time goes by her feelings for him go deeper than that of friendship. But what if he does not feel the same way? Although she wants him to know how she feels, is telling him worth the risk?

As always, Denise Hunter strikes gold again. This story is easy to follow but did not lose my interest by being too slow or predictable. The characters were also easy to connect with. All in all it is a very enjoyable, entertaining story. I liked that is has a side story as well. In regards to the main story, it can be read as a standalone. However, to fully grasp the picture of the side story I do recommend reading the Summer Harbor series in order.
