My rating is 4.5 stars
If I wasn’t already a fan of Zane, the gift of the beautiful seashell he picked up on the beach simply because it made him think of Billie would have put me over the top. He showed the kind of loyalty and friendship that had him searching for his friend when he went missing from the hospital. He was playful, strong, determined and handsome as well. One fun quirk of his was that he liked reading the encyclopedia.
Zane had dev ...more

I have so enjoyed this trilogy by Shanna Hatfield. Her writing never disappoints, but these WWII stories, intricately woven together, are really the cats pajamas! I adored Billie and Zane, whom I had already met in Garden of Her Heart, but was amazed at what a true romantic Zane was once he met his match! Additionally, the historical bits and pieces were thoroughly researched and brought these books to life in a way I truly appreciated. Breathtakingly poignant and ...more
This is a beautifully written book to add to this awesome series. Wonderful storyline, well written characters that played all their parts well, even that dastardly varmint Floyd! The work spent researching for this novel, really paid off with all the historical facts woven in and around this beautiful sweet romance. Shanna Hatfield's writings has you feeling as though you are in the midst of what is going on and I love it! JudyE
Read full review in the 2019 February issue of InD'tale Magazine.
I thoroughly enjoyed this romance which read as a stand-alone, but included some characters I met in an earlier novel in the series. Great characters with plenty of suspense regarding what direction the plot would go. Definitely recommend this book.
In addition to blogging and eating too much chocolate, she is completely smitten with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller.
Shanna creates character-driven romances with realistic heroes and heroines. Her histor ...more
