Book Review - WHEN TIDES TURN by Sarah Sundin
Sarah Sundin is a fabulous author who turns out these great World War II Christian Romance/Mysteries on the order of about once a year. When Tides Turn is the third in her Waves of Freedom series, and the five-star reviews just keep stacking up on all three.
Quintessa Beaumont is tired of being just another pretty face. She hates it when men fawn over her and stare with googly eyes. Why can't there be a man who would love her for herself? She graduated with a business degree and went to work for an upscale clothing store. Her boss wanted her to have a year's sales experience before she became his assistant. Unfortunately, that boss retired, and the new boss doesn't have any intention of moving his beautiful and most effective sales clerk into the office.
So--Quintessa decides to join the WAVES and to shorten her name to a more professional-sounding "Tess." Besides, those smart-looking blue WAVES uniforms suited her to a T.
There are only one or two drawbacks. The biggest one is maybe that Navy men aren't allowed to date WAVES--and there's an officer there who treats her like an equal, Lieutenant Dan Avery, her best friend's brother. The other drawback is in the form of her supervisor, Lt. Randolph, a harsh and vindictive man.
Tess worries too about her friend and once-roommate Yvette, a young French woman supposedly in love with Henri. The two of them act so suspicious that Tess wonders if...no, that's impossible. Surely her friend wouldn't spy for the Nazis.
Interesting twists and turns in this novel. Grab it from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, or on the shelves of your favorite bookstore.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
