Review of London Tides by Carla Laureano

London Tides is the second book in a series- The MacDonald Family Trilogy. I hadn't read the first, but I was able to read this one without it. Each one seems to be a stand alone read, although they center around the same family. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and will keep a look out for the chance to read the first.

Both of the main characters are well developed, and they are quite likable. There is a sweet romance and an interesting story line. There were a few times that I felt as if things dragged on, but overall I really enjoyed the read.

This is Christian fiction, but it isn't preachy at all, and there isn't much mention of God or any spiritual element here. But the characters do have a few personal revelation moments as the book reaches the climax and begins to resolve.

I give London Tides a strong 4 stars and a PG rating (although there is mention of war violence). I'll be looking for the others in the series as well. You can find London Tides on Amazon here.

I studied literature and criticism at Pepperdine University and earned a degree in English in 1997. Since then, I’ve worked in a number of different industries as a salesperson, marketing manager, copywriter, and small business consultant. In addition to my work for corporate clients, I wrote for publications produced by the World Health Organization.

I love the history, culture, and mythology of Ireland and Scotland, which form the settings for most of my work. I also enjoy incorporating my background in martial arts and fencing into the action elements of my stories.

I’m a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and Romance Writers of America (RWA). I was selected as a finalist in ACFW’s 2012 Genesis contest in the speculative fiction category. My debut novel, a contemporary romance entitled Five Days in Skye, was released by David C Cook in June 2013 and went on to win RWA’s 2014 RITA Award for Inspirational Romance. My three book young adult fantasy series, SONG OF SEARE, is being released from NavPress in 2014 and 2015.

I live with my husband and two sons in Denver, Colorado.


Irish photojournalist Grace Brennan travels the world’s war zones documenting the helpless and forgotten. After the death of her friend and colleague, Grace is shaken.

She returns to London hoping to rekindle the spark with the only man she ever loved—Scottish businessman Ian MacDonald. But he gave up his championship rowing career and dreams of Olympic gold years ago for Grace ... only for her to choose career over him. Will life’s tides bring them back together ... or tear them apart for good this time?
