About the Book
Book: From Shore to Shore
Author: Tabitha Bouldin
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
Release date: May 31, 2022
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.
Read the next Sparrow Island novel in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

About the Author
Tabitha Bouldin is a student at Southern New Hampshire University, where she is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s in Creative Writing. As a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), she works with critique groups and provides endorsements for other authors. Tabitha’s genre of choice is Contemporary Christian Romance which she describes as: Adventure with heart. Tabitha spent ten years working as a Medical Assistant before God opened the door which allowed her to become a stay-at-home-homeschooling-mom and author.
As always, Bouldin’s writing doesn’t disappoint.
Bree is a world-traveling marine biologist who lives for her next dive. She’s paired with another guy who she thought felt the same way, but when he gives up everything for some skinny model, Bree finds herself jilted, yet again, and out of a diving partner. Then she encounters Conner, the steady and calm and capable captain they’d originally hired together. He seems to know everyone on the island, and becomes an invaluable resource and friend, helping her out of jam after jam.
But she can’t develop feelings for him. She’s leaving in a few months, and he has made it abundantly clear that he is not interested in romance either. Or has he?
The building romantic tension, moments of spiritual reflection, ocean setting and small town island life are all beautifully woven together and made the story fabulous, but throw in a legendary pirate ship mystery, and you’ve got yet another amazing Bouldin novel.
Thank you so much to the author and publisher for providing me an advanced copy. I would’ve bought one anyway as I thoroughly enjoy all of Bouldin’s independence island books.

More from Tabitha
Writing in the Independence Islands series has been a true blessing, and From Shore to Shore is no different, except that these characters brought out feelings that I never expected.
Most of the time, when I go into a story, I know a bit of what’s going to happen. I already understand the characters’ backstory and what has driven them to this point in there life where I’ve picked up their tale and begun to weave it into a book.
Bree decided she wanted to go another route.
Cooper didn’t want to talk to me for half the book.
Christian walked onto the page and tried to take over because he didn’t want to wait for his turn in book five.
These characters, I tell you what, they’re a demanding bunch.
Finally, though, finally they settled in and told me their story.
You might remember Cooper, he’s Mel’s brother and he showed up in book one, Mishaps off the Mainland. Cooper is a delightful yet careful captain who delights in the open ocean and loves the islands.
Bree is a tangled mess of consternation. She scorns love and believes it to be a trap. Even God’s love is suspect in Bree’s eyes.
These two are imperfectly suited for each other, but God has a plan to help them both, and He helped me through every page of From Shore to Shore, a story that shows no matter how far you run, no matter what shore you find yourself on, God got there first.
