No Safe Harbor Still Onshore

Cara Hamilton is a newcomer to America from her native Ireland. From the minute she steps off the boat, she seems to be holding the burden of her identity as it relates to her family background. Although I was intrigued by the setting of the story, I'm afraid reading No Safe Harbor was something of a chore. 

The plot focused on Cara finding her long lost brother Eoghan ( pronounced Owen) though that plot seemed all but abandoned in favor of a love interest with a man who wanted him dead. The other characters involved were hard to keep track of and in the end I just wanted it to be over. When it was finished, the ending was both anti-climactic and predictable. A recipe for disappointment. Too bad. I think the author had a good idea, but never got it off the shore.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in return for my honest opinion of this book. You can read my review and buy the book at
