Making Waves - A Great Debut

Making Waves
Lorna Seilstad
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3445-9
September 2010/368 pages/$14.99

Sun, summer, and a scrumptious sailing instructor. What more could a girl want?Making Waves will whisk you away to a breezy lakeside summer holiday.

Lorna Seilstad is a history buff, antique collector, and freelance graphic designer. A former high school English and journalism teacher, she has won several online writing awards and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. She lives in and draws her setting from Iowa. This is her first novel.

Lorna Seilstad makes a splash in the world of fiction with this great debut novel. This is another book that makes me so glad I didn't live in a time when parents arranged the marriages and the primary factor was economics! Marguerite's intended is a wimpy jerk who sees her only as someone to bend to his will as well as increase his social standing. Accustomed to getting her way, Marguerite is convinced her doting father will rescue her from the proposed wedding. Her antics as she endeavors to stealthily take sailing lessons (under the guise of supervising her brother's lessons) are alternately amusing and exasperating, and Trip isn't sure whether to throttle her or kiss her! Danger and suspense threaten their budding romance as the novel sails toward completion. This is a fun read, and I look forward to more from this new author.

Available September 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

I know why the Lord didn't place me in a filthy rich family...I would have made so many waves I would have drowned myself!

FUN book!
