The Wishing Tide

The Wishing Tide - Barbara Davis

 

Mary, Lane, and Michael.  Three marvelous and completely different characters when put together make the pages of THE WISHING TIDE come alive.

Lane owns a Bed & Breakfast, Mary is homeless, and Michael is the mysterious, unwanted guest who arrives during a storm for what appears to be for reasons other than not having any other place to stay for the night.

All three characters blend together with things in common that they don't know about, and they fill the pages of THE WISHING TIDE with a splendid, beautifully told story.

 

There is something about Mary that you can't help liking. Could it be her elusiveness,  her purple bag, her ability to read a person, or just her constant presence?

 
Lane is a character you will feel sorry for even though she seems to have it all. 
 
Michael seemed sinister, and is someone who appeared on the scene more than by chance and with secrets of his own to work out.‚Äč
 

THE WISHING TIDE is an emotional ride about life's lessons, personal secrets, and personal relationships. 

 
The writing was beautiful, detailed, and flowed nicely. The descriptions have you hearing the sea, smelling the sea air, and feeling the sand as well as vividly visualizing the buildings,  the quaint town, and every scene.
 

I enjoyed THE WISHING TIDE simply because it was a cozy, comforting read with outstanding characters, an intriguing storyline, and a magnificent setting.

The entire book and especially the ending wraps you up in a warm, homey cocoon.  Don't miss reading THE WISHING TIDE.  5/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
