Review: Seaside Letters by Denise Hunter

Seaside Letters
by Denise Hunter

Genre: Contemporary Inspirational Romance
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Cost: $10.19

What I Liked:
This book was excellently written, and very engaging. Tucker is a sweet, kind beta hero who knows what he wants and isn't afraid to wait for it. This is the kind of man that a lot of women need, but may not be willing to engage with. Of course, he's also hot, so that helps a lot. And Sabrina has been hurt before, so she's not on the prowl for some alpha male who won't treat her right. She needs a man who will wait for her to be ready, and who will accept his love.

Very beautiful metaphor, since it is a Christian book. And not overdone on the Jesus-y front, which I appreciated. This is a book that will not disappoint, I think. I was a little skeptical, I'll admit, because I have read a couple of duds recently. But I was impressed by this book. It was well-written, the characters were engaging, the love story was beautiful, and there was a lot at stake. Plus, there's just something about Nantucket.

Thankfully, it appears that Denise Hunter has a whole series of Nantucket love stories, and one just came out last week. I look forward to reading more of her work. I love what I've seen so far.

Book Blurb
"Sabrina never intended to fall in love with Tucker McCabe, the man she serves coffee to every morning at a Nantucket cafe--especially since he's unwittingly tied to a past she deeply regrest. But she's fallen hard, though she's kept her feelings a secret.

"When Tucker learns Sabrina is the research assistant for a local mystery writer, he asks Sabrina to help him with a little sleuthing of his own... locating an elusive woman he's fallen for online.

"If Sabrina accepts the job, the'll be spending her evenings in close proximity to a man who can never be hers. If she turns him down, he'll hire someone else--and that would be a disaster. Because if someone else sifts through all those letters and finds the truth, Tucker will discover her secret...

"That the person he's trying to find is her." from the back of the book
