When Tides Turn
by Sarah Sundin
This is the third book in the Waves of Freedom series. I LOVE Sarah Sundin's books and this is a absolutely fantastic historical series. Readers, if you enjoy historical fiction, especially WWII fiction, you are not going to want to miss this book!!
Add the books in this series to your GOODREADS TBR pile.
The last thing naval officer Dan Avery wants to see on his radar is glamour girl Quintessa Beaumont—even if she has joined the WAVES.
When fun-loving glamour girl Quintessa Beaumont learns the Navy has established the WAVES program for women, she enlists, determined to throw off her frivolous ways and contribute to the war effort. No-nonsense and hoping to make admiral, Lt. Dan Avery has been using his skills to fight German U-boats. The last thing he wants to see on his radar is a girl like Tess. For her part, Tess works hard to prove her worth in the Anti-Submarine Warfare Unit in Boston—both to her commanding officers and to the man with whom she is smitten. When Dan is assigned to a new escort carrier at the peak of the Battle of the Atlantic, he’s torn between his lifelong career goals and his desire to help Tess root out a possible spy on shore. The Germans put up quite a fight, but he wages a deeper battle within his heart. Could Tess be the one for him?
With precision and pizazz, fan favorite Sarah Sundin carries readers through the rough waters of love in a time when every action might have unforeseen world-changing consequences.

A touch of kindness enthusiasm could transforma person's spirt, and Quintessa Beaumont delighted in participating in the process.
