Around lunch time yesterday, I started reading The Raven Saint by M.L. Tyndall. Once I started, I couldn't put it down! Well, except to chase a 2 year old every once in a while, lol! Since I couldn't stop reading, I was offline all day. That never happens!
The Raven Saint is the third book in the Charles Towne Belles series. This one is about Grace Wescott, who has spent her life serving God by helping the less fortunate. On one such trip to deliver medicine, she is kidnapped by a French mercenary who is planning on selling her to a Spanish Don in Colombia. Grace sees this as an opportunity to try and spread God's word to those on board the ship where she is being held hostage.
On her quest to change others, Grace faces the realization that she needs to change also. Sure she was always helping others, but she was also looking down on them and judging them. She has to realize it's not her place to judge others, only to help.
Grace ends up falling for the same Captain who kidnapped her. He has his own demons to face and wants nothing to do with the pious Grace until he realizes she could be the one. The one who would love him and not hurt him. There is trouble on the sea, though, and Grace is kidnapped once again by someone far worse than the Captain.
I have read the whole series and each time I think the next book can't be as good as the last. But, each time, I have been wrong. I believe this was the best of the three since I couldn't stop reading. I love them all because each one has a different heroine and hero. The lessons learned in each book are very different also. I highly recommend The Raven Saint and can't wait to read another book by M.L. Tyndall.
I was sent The Raven Saint in exchange for review by M.L. Tyndall.
