When Tides Turn


Book Title: When Tides Turn
Author: Sarah Sundin
Release Date: March 14, 2017
Publisher: Revell

Synopsis:
When fun-loving glamour girl Quintessa Beaumont learns the Navy has established the WAVES program for women, she enlists, determined to throw off her frivolous ways and contribute to the war effort. No-nonsense and hoping to make admiral, Lt. Dan Avery has been using his skills to fight German U-boats. The last thing he wants to see on his radar is a girl like Tess. For her part, Tess works hard to prove her worth in the Anti-Submarine Warfare Unit in Boston--both to her commanding officers and to the man with whom she is smitten. When Dan is assigned to a new escort carrier at the peak of the Battle of the Atlantic, he's torn between his lifelong career goals and his desire to help Tess root out a possible spy on shore. The Germans put up quite a fight, but he wages a deeper battle within his heart. Could Tess be the one for him?

With precision and pizazz, fan favorite Sarah Sundin carries readers through the rough waters of love in a time when every action might have unforeseen world-changing consequences.


My Review:
I love when Sarah Sundin writes a new book! There's not a book of hers I haven't read. I would consider these books to be some of the best historical romance out there. There is a very large amount of historical details that would be boring to read about maybe if you didn't have this talented author weaving them into an exciting tale. 

Not just a historical, When Tides Turn has a romance full of chemistry; and an ongoing mystery too. I love how each of the main characters, and some side characters, are paired. They're not polar opposites but each has their own personalities and quirks that bring out the best side in the other. I'm not sure which characters out of the three books in the Waves of Freedom series are my favorite. I loved every one of them! I connected to each one too. That's probably why I loved them, right? If you can't relate to someone you almost never form a connection. And while it may seem silly to some it's definitely possible to form a connection to a fictional character. 

And now to go place this book on the esteemed shelf of favorites on my bookshelf.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
