When Meg Whitaker’s father decides to sell the family’s lobster-fishing business to her high school nemesis, she sets out to prove she should inherit it instead. Though she’s never had any interest in running the small fleet–or even getting on a boat due to her persistent seasickness–she can’t stand to see Oliver Ross take over. Not when he ruined her dreams for a science scholarship and an Ivy League education ten years ago.
Oliver isn’t proud of what he did back then. Angry and broken by his father walking out on his family, he lashed out at Meg–an innocent bystander. But owning a respected fishing fleet on Prince Edward Island is the opportunity of a lifetime, and he’s not about to walk away just because Meg wants him to.
Meg’s father has the perfect solution: Oliver and Meg must work the business together, and at the end of the season, he’ll decide who gets it. Along the way, they may discover that their stories are more similar than they thought . . . and their dreams aren’t what they expected.
Bestselling author Liz Johnson invites you back to Prince Edward Island for a brand-new series about family, forgiveness, and the kind of love that heals all wounds.
Beyond The Tides by Liz Johnson is book 1 in the Prince Edward Island Shores series. This book captivated me from the start! Liz Johnson always draws me right in with her contemporary romance novels. The characters are brought to life with their unique personality traits, painful pasts and human flaws. While the main character, Meg Whitaker, is a strong female role who decides to take over her dad’s lobster business. The supporting role is an enemy from her childhood with his own story to tell. He to is trying to win the bid for her father’s fishing boat. The secondary characters are as important as the main characters and weave through the book beautifully. You will feel as though you are living in the town and are familiar with the characters. The small island setting is charming and quaint. The storyline will make you laugh and then pull at your heart strings. It has themes the of grief, forgiveness, determination and family. The best part of the book to me is the surprise ending! Yes, this contemporary romance has a plot twist. If you are a fan of Denise Hunter, Suzanne Woods Fisher or Becky Wade, you will enjoy this novel by Liz Johnson. Buy Now: Amazon Kindle Bookshop.org
