She's done it again.
Helene Young's Safe Harbour is the latest from the Australian romantic suspense author.
Young's novels have been consistent in their balance of heart-stopping tension and heart-wrenching emotions.
Safe Harbour is no exception.
From the storm-ravaged waters of the opening scene, through to the pursuit of Darcy and the mysterious man she's rescued from the sea near her home town, the conflict never wavers.
There are some truly heartbreaking moments along the way, and I don't mind admitting I read some parts of this novel with tears in my eyes - it's truly evocative.
Five stars once more to an author at the top of her game.
