It is 1941 and America teeters on the brink of war. Handsome and outgoing naval officer Ensign Jim Avery escorts British convoys across the North Atlantic in a brand-new destroyer, the USS Atwood. On shore, Jim encounters Mary Stirling, a childhood friend who is now an astute and beautiful Boston Navy Yard secretary.
When evidence of sabotage on the Atwood is discovered, Jim and Mary must work together to uncover the culprit. A bewildering maze of suspects emerges, and Mary is dismayed to find that even someone close to her is under suspicion. With the increasing pressure, Jim and Mary find that many new challenges--and dangers--await them.
This is one of those books that will fill in a few hours if you fancy a light read. It's a pleasant book that has a bit of romance and intrigue in it.
I will say I am not a huge fan of war books and felt this was a little light on details. I didn't know about the convoys that escorted freight ships via Iceland, so that was something new I learned. I will say though it took me a while to figure out "who dun it!"
Stars out of 5 : 3 I will not remember this book next month. It is the first in a new series by Sarah called "Waves of Freedom."
