I have enjoyed the entire Waves of Freedom series, and When Tides Turn is an excellent addition to it. If you have not read the series, I believe you can still enjoy When Tides Turn. However, I really liked catching up with the previous couples from books one and two in this story and seeing what was going on in their lives.
Tess was definitely not a favorite of mine when she appeared in the previous books, but I couldn’t help but love her in this novel! When Tides Turn is packed with interesting details about U Boats, Radar, the WAVES program, and life at sea during wartime. I loved it all! When Tides Turn had action, danger, suspense, and such a wonderful budding romance between Dan and Tess. These two characters seemed like opposites, yet truly were perfect for each other. Their story is one you don’t want to miss! I loved this book from start to finish.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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?
