The Whiskey Tide by M. Ruth Myers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was another of my DSOA picks back in mid 2013.
After the last two quite disappointing books, this was refreshing change.
It was well written, and relatively error free. The plot was enjoyable with a twist or turn here and there, with good quality writing displayed.
Having said that, I do feel the author took the safe option, and could have pushed herself further with both the characterisation and plot changes. Quite a bit of the time it felt as if she had taken a "safe" option, rather than really pushing her writing boundaries.
It had the the good bones of a good 4 star read, but could have been so much more. Obviously, I am bracing myself for the negative feedback that happens on Amazon reviews; which can be frustrating, as I just try to be constructive in my reviewing ... however, there is always an element of any society that does not accept honesty!
That having been said, I would read more by this author.
As mentioned above, I picked this up as a freebie Kindle download in April 2013, and featured it as a Daily Selection on Amazon at the time. It is currently listed HERE for £2.70 as a Kindle download - which represents fair value for money.
Historical fiction, with a romantic element
No overt sexual content

It was relatively error free from memory (my Kindle is on charge upstairs, so I will have to amend this section if that wasn't correct).
