Revell Blog Tour and Book Review: Making Waves

What an absolutely wonderful book!

With vivacious characters and a story line that draws the reader into the middle of the story world and a love that swept me away, there was not a thing that I did not totally fall in love with.

Lighthearted, with a gripping story message, I laughed and frolicked with the characters, watching them grow and expand their horizons.

Marguerite is a precocious young woman thirsty for adventure and she finds it by the bucket load, along with a fair amount of trouble! She grew so much in this story and her transformations were genuine and enlightening. The love story was warm and giving. The suspense was intriguing, going right down to the wire, until I wasn’t sure how Marguerite was going make it out!

I can’t say anything negative about this book, it is a fabulous debut in a wonderful era, (late 19th century) on a beach (I could see the waves and boats on the water and smell the island breeze). I felt the stifling heat of a distasteful engagement and couldn’t wait to be released along with Marguerite. In short: I. Cannot. Wait. For. More.

This review is my honest opinion, thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

Available September 2010 from Revell, a division of Baker publishers.
