About the book:
Copenhagen, 1940

When the Germans march into Denmark, Baron Henrik Ahlefeldt exchanges his nobility for anonymity, assuming a new identity so he can secretly row messages for the Danish Resistance across the waters to Sweden. American physicist Dr. Else Jensen refuses to leave Copenhagen and abandon her research--her life's dream--and makes the dangerous decision to print resistance newspapers.

As Else hears rumors of the movement's legendary Havmand--the merman--she also becomes intrigued by the mysterious and silent shipyard worker living in the same boardinghouse. Henrik makes every effort to conceal his noble upbringing, but he is torn between the façade he must maintain and the woman he is beginning to fall in love with.

When the Occupation cracks down on the Danes, these two passionate people will discover if there is more power in speech . . . or in silence. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review: Yesterday's Tides by Roseanna M. White

About the book:
In two world wars, intelligence and counterintelligence, prejudice, and self-sacrifice collide across two generations

In 1942, Evie Farrow is used to life on Ocracoke Island, where every day is the same--until the German U-boats haunting their waters begin to wreak havoc. And when special agent Sterling Bertrand is washed ashore at Evie's inn, her life is turned upside down. While Sterling's injuries keep him inn-bound for weeks, making him even more anxious about the SS officer he's tracking, he becomes increasingly intrigued by Evie, who seems to be hiding secrets of her own.

Decades earlier, in 1914, Englishman Remington Culbreth arrives at the Ocracoke Inn for the summer, never expecting to fall in love with Louisa Adair, the innkeeper's daughter. But when war breaks out in Europe, their relationship is put in jeopardy and may not survive what lies ahead for them.

As the ripples from the Great War rock Evie and Sterling's lives in World War II, it seems yesterday's tides may sweep them all into danger again today.

My thoughts:
Yesterday's Tides was absolutely amazing! I was quickly drawn into the story and loved how it was written. The time-slip was great; I was intrigued by how the stories intertwined and trying to figure that out was a treat. 

The romance was wonderful in BOTH timelines. I was nervous at times with how everything would turn out, which made the book difficult to put down. 

One thing I especially loved was how this story included characters from White's previous books AND she included in the author's note all the little connections. So fun! 

All in all, Yesterday's Tides was an amazing read that I highly recommend. It's definitely going on my favorites' shelf. :)

Review: The Color of Justice by Ace Collins


About the book:
1964


Justice, Mississippi, is a town divided. White and black. Rich and
poor. Rule makers and rule breakers. Right or wrong, everyone assumes
their place behind a fragile façade that is about to crumble.  When
attorney Coop Lindsay agrees to defend a black man accused of murdering a
white teenager, the bribes and death threats don’t intimidate him. As
he prepares for the case of a lifetime, the young lawyer knows it’s the
verdict that poses the real threat—innocent or guilty, because of his
stand Coop is no longer welcome in Justice. As he follows his
conscience, he wonders just how far some people will go to make sure he
doesn’t finish his job?


2014


To some, the result of the trial still feels like a fresh wound even
fifty years later, when Coop’s grandson arrives in Justice seeking
answers to the questions unresolved by the trial that changed his
family’s legacy. When a new case is presented, again pitting white
against black, this third generation Lindsay may have the opportunity he
needs to right the wrongs of the past. 

But hate destroys everything it touches, and the Lindsay family will not escape unscathed.

My thoughts:
The Color of Justice was a fantastic read! I ended up listening to the audiobook I borrowed from the library instead of reading my e-review copy and it was such a good listen! The narrator was amazing.

I was drawn into the story right away and I loved how it was written. I kept trying to figure out what the truth was and, I've got to say, the ending SHOCKED me!

All in all, The Color of Justice was a great read and I recommend it to fans of mysteries.
