From the publisher:
“Can a Love Shattered by the Sands of Time…Rise Beyond the Waves?
Taysia Green nearly chokes on her water when Officer Kylen Sumner shows up in her office claiming he’s back in town because he loves her. Since he’s broken her heart more than once, and she recently started dating youth pastor Blaine Pittman, she wants absolutely nothing to do with Kylen. But he’s been asked to stand in as the mediator between Taysia and wannabe model Sophia Clinesmith, who twisted her ankle in the parking lot of Taysia’s business and is threatening a lawsuit.
If she didn’t need him to help save her gym, Taysia would tell Kylen to take a long midnight walk on a short cliffside trail.
She’s perfectly happy with her life just the way it is.
So why is it that just the sight of Kylen Sumner sets her traitorous heart to dancing faster than it did the time Blaine kissed her?”
Beyond the Waves started strong and was laugh out loud funny and entertaining where I did not want to put it down. There are some important messages and themes throughout this book that makes it more than just plain fun, even though it is fun. The parts that made it okay instead of really good for me were the multiple similar physical mishaps and Taysia being so naive at times it, it just didn’t go with the rest of her personality that I met in the beginning of the book.
I give Beyond the Waves 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. So, I round up to 4 as I would recommend this fun, light read.
I received this book in digital format in exchange for my honest opinion.
About the author:
Born and raised in Malawi, Africa. Lynnette Bonner spent the first years of her life reveling in warm equatorial sunshine and the late evening duets of cicadas and hyenas. The year she turned eight she was off to Rift Valley Academy, a boarding school in Kenya where she spent many joy-filled years, and graduated in 1990.
That fall, she traded to a new duet–one of traffic and rain–when she moved to Kirkland, Washington to attend Northwest University. It was there that she met her husband and a few years later they moved to the small town of Pierce, Idaho.
During the time they lived in Idaho, while studying the history of their little town, Lynnette was inspired to begin the Shepherd’s Heart Series with Rocky Mountain Oasis.
Marty and Lynnette have four children, and currently live in Washington where Marty pastors a church.
