From Shore to Shore Release Week Fun

From Shore to Shore Party!

Bree and Cooper are two of the most outgoing characters I think I’ve ever written. Cooper is a water taxi driver, and Bree is a marine biologist. They practically live on the water.

For From Shore to Shore‘s release, I thought it would be fun to talk about our favorite moments on or near the ocean.

I’ve been on water taxis before. They’re pretty interesting. I have never been on a big boat. I’ve never been on any kind of boat other than a water taxi.

Which means that my favorite moment is going to be near the ocean and not on it.

I was in my 20s the first time I ever saw the ocean. My husband and I took a trip to Daytona Beach while I was pregnant with our first child. It was one of the most memorable vacations we’ve ever had.

We love the beach. Since that first vacation, we try and visit the beach every year. We don’t always make it, but even after all these years, when we plan a vacation, the beach is our first choice.

That first trip to Daytona was special in many ways, but here is my favorite.

There was a moment when we sat in the sand at Daytona during that first vacation and I could see our forever stretching toward the horizon. We’d been married about 5 years at that point and were more in love then than the day we said I do.

I looked at my husband, and I looked at the ocean. And I felt such peace. More peace than I’ve ever felt in my life. To this day, I look at the ocean and I feel it, that rush of knowing that God is bigger than everything.

About the book:

Can one captain show her the deep love of the ultimate Captain without falling in love himself?

Bree Jamison comes to Sparrow Island for one reason: to study coral reefs. She’s not interested in happily-ever-after and certainly won’t allow her handsome boat captain to sway her into believing these islands are different from any others. But when she finds an old shipwreck and learns the history of pirates and treasure, Bree finds herself searching for something that always feels just out of reach.

Cooper Carmichael takes the job as boat captain for the enigmatic Bree to further his career. He never expected her to be so driven—or so painfully opposed to God.

All Cooper wants is his happy island life. He wants for nothing. In fact, he’s made it his mission to be content. In every aspect of his life. Bree throws a wrench in his plan as her presence pushes Cooper to want for things he deems unnecessary.

A man striving for contentment. A woman who believes God is picking on her.

It takes one to show the other that no matter which shore you find yourself on, God got there first.
