"Janet Cooper's lastest historical romance adds a bit of mystery to a fast-paced tale about the early days of the Coast Guard. You'll love her heroine, a colonial widow who's also a mid-wife who rescues the hero after a terrible NorthEaster hits the East coast..."
"I really enjoyed this story - great character conflict and interesting historical details made this plot come alive. Going to look for other books by this author!"
