Book Review - ANCHOR IN THE STORM by Sarah Sundin
I've yet to talk to anyone who didn't love, love, love Sarah Sundin's war stories, and I'm serious when I tell you, you will also love this one. Sarah knows her history, and she knows how to spin a tight tale!
Lillian Avery is a live-wire who won't let anything like a wooden leg slow her down. An accident as a child might have removed her real leg, but it only fueled her desire to succeed in everything. She becomes a pharmacist, and her brother Jim convinces a drug store owner in Boston to give her a job.
If he'd known she didn't have two flesh-and-blood legs, Mr. Dixon would never have hired her. As it is, he refuses to let her out from behind the counter. At least at first. Gradually his attitude mellows, and he actually lets her brighten up his dark store. Especially since she's paying for it.
And then there's Ensign Archer Vandenberg, one of Jim's best friends, assigned to a destroyer that hunts U-Boats on the Eastern Seaboard. Jim has warned this society darling to back off flirting with his sister. Not that the flirting's doing any good. The woman seems immune to his charms. Which, of course, only attracts him the more, but he agrees to be just her friend, at least for the time being.
When it becomes obvious to Lillian and Arch that barbiturates are being distributed where they shouldn't be, they become partners trying to expose a deadly drug ring.
They could use a little help. How's about if you dash over to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and grab a copy. Anchor in the Storm has also begun showing up at bookstores, so it won't be hard for you to begin reading tonight....
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.
