Riptide Rumors (The Legacy of Sunset Cove Book 2) by [Carlson, Melody]
About the Book: 
If the Tide Doesn’t Change, Who Will Pay the Price?

As autumn of 1916 descends upon the once-peaceful town of Sunset Cove, Anna McDowell has great hopes that the excitement of the summer will be over, now that a few of the key players in the rum-running ring have been arrested. But with a daring jailbreak getting the town in a dither again, she knows that the danger hasn’t passed for anyone in her coastal hometown.

With a mayoral election keeping tensions high and the authorities busy searching for those behind the jailbreak, Anna has plenty to keep the newspaper busy. But when her sixteen-year-old daughter begins making noises about leaving high school and abandoning dreams of college, Anna realizes that prohibition isn’t the only thing she needs to be worrying about.

How deep does the root of corruption run in their town? As she digs deeper, Anna is forced to put the concerns of her own heart on hold in an effort to save some of the people dearest to her.

About the Author: Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books (with sales around 6.5 million) for teens, women and children. That's a lot of books, but mostly she considers herself a "storyteller." Her novels range from serious issues like schizophrenia (Finding Alice) to lighter topics like house-flipping (A Mile in My Flip-Flops) but most of the inspiration behind her fiction comes right out of real life. Her young adult novels (Diary of a Teenage Girl, TrueColors etc.) appeal to teenage girls around the world. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. She's won a number of awards (including Romantic Time's Career Achievement Award, the Rita and the Gold Medallion) and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV.

My Thoughts:

One of the things that I love about this author is the careful research she does with all of her books. She tries to make them as historically accurate as possible. This is the second book in the Legacy of the Sunset Cove series. It can be read as a stand alone. At time of this posting, I have not read the first one. I was able to follow along but will be going back and reading the first book so that I can make the connections. As always, this book has well written characters and a storyline that will draw you in within the first few pages. America is on the brink of the first World War and the characters and their love of country and culture shines through this book. Very well written. I received a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit - all thoughts are my own.
