The last thing naval officer Dan Avery wants to see on his radar is glamour girl Quintessa Beaumont—even if she has joined the WAVES.
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.
First of all, I want to thank Sarah Sundin for holding the giveaway in which I won this book! I was so excited when I got the message from her! I couldn’t wait to read the newest book by her. When the book arrived in my mail box, I couldn’t wait to begin reading it. Then, it was time for my spring break. And, for this year’s spring break, my sisters, Mom, and I traveled 700 miles to our destination. And then 700 miles back. That is when I read one of my newest favorite books—When Tides Turn. It was mostly on the way back home that I read it. And I couldn’t put it down!
I always like the story where the main characters are opposites and can’t stand each other. This story was just like that and I loved it! I mean, I even put down my ice cream to keep reading it. And that is saying something! Nothing can come between me and my ice cream, unless it is absolutely amazing!
I also like all of the historical aspects of the book. They were really interesting! I can’t say they intrigued me more than the romance in the story, but they were still cool!
The cover, unfortunately, was not my favorite. As you know, I don’t really like faces on book covers unless they really fit the story. The cover wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t my favorite. I will give it 2 stars.
The story, as you can guess, deserves 5 stars! Sarah is a wonderful author! I recommend this book to all readers who enjoyed romance, history, and mystery.
