Testing the waters is one thing, but Teresa Reynolds is in serious danger of going overboard.
Feeling down on herself after a breakup with her ultra-critical boyfriend, Teresa arrives in Crescent Cove, Oregon, for a weekend getaway. The trouble is, her ex-boyfriend’s claims that she’s uninteresting and unworthy of love have left her wishing she could be someone else. Then a chance encounter with a cute guy on the beach gives her the opportunity to reinvent herself…
Curt Mason is spending the summer avoiding women and getting over a broken heart. When he meets Térèse from Paris on the beach in Crescent Cove, his vow quickly goes out with the tide. Who is this mysterious woman, and why is he suddenly wracking his brain to remember every bit of French he learned back in high school just to try to impress her?
Being Térèse seems to bring out the best in Teresa, until her little game turns into a French knot of deception. Does she dare let Curt meet the person God made her to be?
Crescent Cove. Where true love comes in waves.
Testing the Waters deals with the desire to be someone you aren’t after someone tears you down. You are a creation in Christ and both characters had to deal with rejection, but they did it in different ways. This novella allows you to use your imagination. What happened between the “reintroduction” and the epilogue, no one knows except that it was good. I like that about this book.
Though this is easily a novella you could read in one sitting, I wasn’t able to. Life kept happening and days would go by where I couldn’t touch my kindle. What I loved was that I could pick this right back up and remember where I was, the main characters were that likable and engaging. I received this book free for an honest review which I have given.
