LONDON TIDES was a book that wooed me back over and over again because I had to know what happened between the characters. Grace is scarred by choices she made and things she has experienced as a war photographer, while Ian is stuck in life. The romance is a compelling wooing of fresh trust that reminded me in some ways of the Biblical story of Hosea and Gomer. A story that will be a great addition to the libraries of those who like a contemporary romance.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Irish photojournalist Grace Brennan travels the world’s war zones documenting the helpless and forgotten. After the death of her friend and colleague, Grace is shaken.
She returns to London hoping to rekindle the spark with the only man she ever loved—Scottish businessman Ian MacDonald. But he gave up his championship rowing career and dreams of Olympic gold years ago for Grace … only for her to choose career over him. Will life’s tides bring them back together … or tear them apart for good this time?
