The Magnolia Duchess: Gulf Coast Chronicles Book 3
By Beth White
“Fiona Lanier is the only woman in the tiny Gulf Coast settlement of Navy Cove. While her shipbuilding family races to fill the demand for American ships brought by the War of 1812, Fiona tries to rescue her brother who was forced into service by the British Navy.
Lieutenant Charlie Kincaid has been undercover for six months, obtaining information vital to the planned British invasion of New Orleans. When a summer storm south of Mobile Bay wrecks his ship and scatters the crew, Charlie suffers a head injury, ultimately collapsing in the arms of a beautiful mermaid who seems eerily familiar. As Charlie’s memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political loyalties begin to collide, they’ll each have to decide where their true heart lies.”
This book is the third book on the Gulf Coast Chronicles. I haven’t read the first 2 books, but to me I don’t think its necessary to read them. This book acts well as a stand alone. But if you get a chance to read the first 2, do it, and then let me know how they are. Since I’m pretty sure I wont be reading them, and here’s why.
This book is a well-written-historical-fiction, I enjoy historical fiction but this one didn’t grasp me as much as I would’ve wanted. I guess the pacing was a little slow for me. But I do recommended for fans of historical fiction. Maybe it was the time that I read it that didn’t help. I don’t know, but that happens sometimes. I’m really a moody reader.(no idea if that’s a thing lol)
Anyways this book has pretty good reviews on Amazon.com . So go check that out. And let me know what you think.
This book was given to me by Revell a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange of an honest review.
