Yesterday’s Tides

In 1942, Evie Farrow is used to life on Ocracoke Island, where every day is the same–until the German U-boats haunting their waters begin to wreak havoc. And when special agent Sterling Bertrand is washed ashore at Evie’s inn, her life is turned upside down. While Sterling’s injuries keep him inn-bound for weeks, making him even more anxious about the man he’s tracking, he becomes increasingly intrigued by Evie, who seems to be hiding secrets of her own.

Decades earlier, in 1914, Englishman Remington Culbreth arrives at the Ocracoke Inn for the summer, but he doesn’t count on falling in love with Louisa Adair, the innkeeper’s daughter. When war breaks out in Europe, and their relationship is put in jeopardy, will their love survive?

As Evie and Sterling work to track down an elusive German agent, they unravel mysteries that go back a generation. The ripples from the Great War are still rocking their lives, and it seems yesterday’s tides may sweep them all into danger again today.

What a finale to the Blackstone Legacy series! I have been waiting for Liam to finally get his story, and it did not disappoint. Maggie is perfect for him and a fun character to boot.

This was the sweetest story! I am loving this series from Laurel. Ruby is a fantastic character as she guides her foster kids to their happily ever after and this one was charming. The premise with the twin terrors and the supper nanny to sweep in and save the day was fun and then as Elise and Ryder’s relationship begins to deepen made for a great read. I loved everything about this book especially the ending. A fantastic read!

When bodies start showing up with Peter’s MO, Sam and Grace are both called in to consult. They’ve met before–and though Grace thought they’d made a real connection, Sam ghosted her.

This is an excellent read! This story had been high on my TBR due to the fact I love all the Fixer Upper things. So, this one definitely intrigued me. It did not disappoint. I really felt for Georgina, she had a lot of things she needed to work through and a lot of heartbreak to come to terms with. This a fantastic story of how God can redeem even the most broken lives and make something beautiful out of the yucky moments of life. A great story that will give you all the feels.
