Making Waves by Lorna Seilstad
Lake Manawa Summers #1
3 of 5 stars
When spunky Marguerite goes to spend her summer at Lake Manawa, her greatest wish is to evade her boring suitor Roger, but finds much more excitement (and romance) when she decides to learn to sail.
“Dear God,how can I live a vanilla life when I’m a strawberry girl?”
In preparation for National Novel Month, I’ve been trying to read books that take place at the turn of the century, and found this one, about a Midwestern summer lake resort, just the sort of thing I was looking for. The author really brought the reader into the setting, and left them with a sweet story as well.
Like many Christian historical romances, this is definitely a bit cheesy in places, and the main character may not necessarily be someone that I’d like to be best friends with, but the lighthearted humor and happily-ever-after ending is sure to satisfy fans of the genre.
