Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: From Shore to Shore by Tabitha Bouldin

Book: From Shore to Shore

Author: Tabitha Bouldin

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: May 31, 2022

Can one captain show her the deep love of the ultimate Captain without falling in love himself?

Bree Jamison comes to Sparrow Island for one reason: to study coral reefs. She’s not interested in happily-ever-after and certainly won’t allow her handsome boat captain to sway her into believing these islands are different from any others. But when she finds an old shipwreck and learns the history of pirates and treasure, Bree finds herself searching for something that always feels just out of reach.

Cooper Carmichael takes the job as boat captain for the enigmatic Bree to further his career. He never expected her to be so driven—or so painfully opposed to God.

All Cooper wants is his happy island life. He wants for nothing. In fact, he’s made it his mission to be content. In every aspect of his life. Bree throws a wrench in his plan as her presence pushes Cooper to want for things he deems unnecessary.

A man striving for contentment. A woman who believes God is picking on her.

It takes one to show the other that no matter which shore you find yourself on, God got there first.

Read the next Sparrow Island novel in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

I have been enjoying the Independence Islands series. I have read several of the books. One thing I especially like is that each book in the series is written by a variety of authors, but all the books flow together nicely. From Shore to Shore by Tabitha Bouldin is Book 23  in the Independence Islands series of Books. I was soo excited to read this book!

Bree Jamison is a Marine Biologist who visits Sparrow Island with one plan in mind which is to Study the Coral Reefs. She is very focused on her career and feels she has no time for any relationships. Bree is very excited when she comes upon a ShipWreck and all its treasures. She learns about Pirates and more after her discovery. It is then she realizes that she is really searching for something that might not be able to happen. Cooper Carmichael is the boat captain for Bree's excursion to the Reefs. He is impressed with her focus on the reefs and her study.  He is saddened at the fact that she is not a Christian. Cooper is a man of contentment and wants very little in life. He really enjoys his life on the Island. He is trying really hard to not fall in love with Bree, but he also wants to show her Christs Love is real. Will Bree find joy in what she is searching for? Will there be a romance between Coope and Bree? Does Bree stay on Sparrow Island? 

WOW, another GREAT Book by Tabitha Bouldin and another great addition to the Independence Island series! Bree is a career focused woman and doesn't seem happy most of the time. Cooper is a Content man and has joy. I really like how the author takes the strengths and weaknesses of both characters to help each other.  I have to say my favorite character in the book was Cooper, as I LOVE being Content in life, so that really resonated with me.  The story is one of second chances, trust, and faith. FANTASTIC BOOK!

More from Tabitha

Writing in the Independence Islands series has been a true blessing, and From Shore to Shore is no different, except that these characters brought out feelings that I never expected.

Most of the time, when I go into a story, I know a bit of what’s going to happen. I already understand the characters’ backstory and what has driven them to this point in there life where I’ve picked up their tale and begun to weave it into a book.

Bree decided she wanted to go another route.

Cooper didn’t want to talk to me for half the book.

Christian walked onto the page and tried to take over because he didn’t want to wait for his turn in book five.

These characters, I tell you what, they’re a demanding bunch.

Finally, though, finally they settled in and told me their story.

You might remember Cooper, he’s Mel’s brother and he showed up in book one, Mishaps off the Mainland. Cooper is a delightful yet careful captain who delights in the open ocean and loves the islands.

Bree is a tangled mess of consternation. She scorns love and believes it to be a trap. Even God’s love is suspect in Bree’s eyes.

These two are imperfectly suited for each other, but God has a plan to help them both, and He helped me through every page of From Shore to Shore, a story that shows no matter how far you run, no matter what shore you find yourself on, God got there first.
