[Fridays with Favorites] Into Deep Waters by Kaje Harper

Well, it’s Friday once again and the topic for this post took me by surprise. I didn’t have an author scheduled for today, so that meant it was a favorites kind of day.

Into Deep WatersYesterday, I started listening to Into Deep Waters by Kaje Harper and was about eighty percent done by the time I went to bed. I always keep a rating in my head of the books I’m reading. It helps me deciding the final one when it’s time to write the reviews. At that point, this story was around four stars.

But this morning that rating changed to five lovely stars. About eighty-eight percent into the story, when the characters are already into their sixties, I lost my battle against the waterworks. Making this book the first entry into my Best of 2017 shelf.

I know, I know. This story came out in 2012. Way before I discovered MM Romances, but it’s ageless. I’m not a fan of American historicals, but this one worked. I had to admit that I had put this book aside several times because I didn’t want to read anything depressing or angsty, but this story is none any of that. Yes, I’m still a bit teary eye, but it has to do more with happiness. And seeing their lives nearing the end; mortality and all that.

If you’re curious, you can read my review here. And if you want to take the plunge and read a great story, you can find it free on Amazon. The narration is only $1.99 and it’s more than worth it.

Fridays with Friends & Favorites is a weekly post featuring authors, designers, editors, and anyone else brave enough to show up. And sometimes, my favorite book of the week might take the spotlight.
