My Review: The third and final installment of the Port Aster Secrets series is just as gripping and exciting as the first two. I really loved how Sandra Orchard concluded all of the twists and turns from the first two books in a nice and tidy story. I was guessing at who the bad guys were and who the good guys were until the very end. 

I really enjoyed watching Kate and Tom fall in love throughout the series. Their romance was rocky, but sweet all the same. His protectiveness over her warmed my soul. Her reticence towards him was understandable, but you couldn't deny her feelings, even if she did. With a whole host of bad guys and good guys, this story is not lacking for character excitement.

Both Kate and Tom had to learn to trust that God doesn't always answer our prayers with a "yes" and that's ok. Sometimes, He has other plans for us, better plans, and they are even more than what we were asking for. Overall, I'm very pleased with the conclusion of this book. It had me turning as quickly as I could until the very end. 

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the Revell Reads blogging program in exchange for my honest review.*
