I received a copy of the book from the author. The review is my own opinion.
From the first chapter to the last, I found this book strange. It had possibilities, but it turned out to be much too short to make the story line work. The book ended at 85% and read more like a short story. Although the ending was good, the novelette felt fragmented and incomplete.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I will definitely read the other books in this series.
I was given this advanced copy to read. This review is my honest opinion of how I felt about this book.
Carianna is a simple soul--not to be confused with idiocy. No, maybe way innocent, but not stupid. Maybe because she is so trusting and friendly, everyone on Mustang Island and nearby San Jose Island knows her and would have her back if there were ever a problem. At least most of the time.
Dominic is a professional photographer out to take pictures of the best sea shell hunting places. He encounters Carianna on Jan Jose Island and is amazed by her beauty and naivety. She actually believes everyone is good and that she has tea with God every Thursday. Yet he's irresistibly drawn to her, and he comes with her to Mustang Island to meet her dying father.
Carianna's naivety nearly gets her into an ugly place, and Dominic finds himself being her protector. How can he leave her there? Available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
I received a free copy of this from the author in return for an honest review.
The description of the setting, a beautiful beach, drew me immediately. It is not a place that I go often but when I do, I always think of the majesty of God. His ability to create this little bit of heaven is amazing! As I read the story, I was able to sit on the beach with the main character, Carianna, studying the seashells and finding unique and valuable treasures on her doorstep. The realistic and detailed description of the characters had me involved in the plot from beginning to end. Carianna's ablility to talk to God and hear that still, quiet voice had me deep in thought about my own life. Do I take the time I need, to hear Him when He speaks?? Do I see the good in others as she did?? What a great example of Christian, she is!
Domenic was such a fine, young man, who quickly appealed to my sense of romance.
The plot was very different from most stories. It was one of a sweet romance as well as showing us how one can grow one's faith. This delightful romance develops , as Domenic embraces the faith of Carianna.
What a marvellous and different read!! Light, however, thought provoking!!!
Ok, Beth!! I dare you to outdo this creation!! This was outstanding!!
This ebook was received as a gift. The opinions and thoughts expressed are honest and my own.
