Beyond the Tides by Liz Johnson.

Book Blurb

When Meg Whitaker’s father decides to sell the family’s lobster-fishing business to her high school nemesis, she sets out to prove she should inherit it instead. Though she’s never had any interest in running the small fleet–or even getting on a boat due to her persistent seasickness–she can’t stand to see Oliver Ross take over. Not when he ruined her dreams for a science scholarship and an Ivy League education ten years ago.

Oliver isn’t proud of what he did back then. Angry and broken by his father walking out on his family, he lashed out at Meg–an innocent bystander. But owning a respected fishing fleet on Prince Edward Island is the opportunity of a lifetime, and he’s not about to walk away just because Meg wants him to.

Meg’s father has the perfect solution: Oliver and Meg must work the business together, and at the end of the season, he’ll decide who gets it. Along the way, they may discover that their stories are more similar than they thought . . . and their dreams aren’t what they expected.

Bestselling author Liz Johnson invites you back to Prince Edward Island for a brand-new series about family, forgiveness, and the kind of love that heals all wounds

Danielle’s Review

I’ve wanted to read a book by Liz Johnson for awhile now, so when I discovered her next one, Beyond the Tides, was set on Prince Edward Island, I jumped at the opportunity to read it. It did not disappoint.

Meg Whitaker has held a grudge for ten years, but when she has to work with Oliver Ross in order to keep him from buying her father’s lobster fishing business … that’s just the beginning. Both Meg and Oliver are the type of characters who make rooting for them easy, a challenge when they seem pitted against one another. And I loved watching the romance grow. The ending? Well, the ending was perfect.

If reading only one book is any indication, I may have found a new contemporary romance author to follow. I already can’t wait for Book Two.
