Endorsements

From the start, the reader will be transported to the tiny town of Otter Bay. Callie and Gage show a love for God’s creations, which grows into a sweet romance. There is a lot of depth in this romance. Callie is known as the justice seeker for the community, working behind the scenes on many different causes. When a beloved property is to be developed, she springs into action attempting to stop the architect, Gage Mitchell, and the company who hired him. As Callie and Gage continue their showdown they realize how much they have in common. But will the cause keep them apart? - Reviewed By: Angie Howatt, Romantic Times Book Reviews

The story of environmental activist, Callie Duflay, and eco-friendly architect, Gage Mitchell, in Julie Carobini’s novel, A Shore Thing is a testament to the fact that if opposites attract then similar people are bound to repel. When Callie learns that her beloved Otter Bay shore is in danger of becoming a large development, her headstrong personality makes her a leading figure in the Save our Shores (S.O.S.) cause. Although she is a seasoned activist, this time she may have met her match in every sense of the word. Her opponent, the struggling architect, Gage, has his own equally valid reasons for supporting sustainable architecture amidst God’s creation.

The book is written in first person, alternating between the perspectives of Callie and Gage. Both characters have specific qualities that define who they are and what they stand for. As an independent, 30-year-old assistant camp director, Callie is accustomed to breaking the social norms of society and even her own family. With a stray dog as her only companion, she will stop at nothing to protect the land she loves. On the other hand, Gage is an even-tempered, diligent worker trying to do his job to the best of his ability so he can fulfill his lifelong dream of opening an eco-conscious firm.

Despite their differences, both Callie and Gage are interested in preserving nature and utilizing the environment -- as God instructed mankind to do in Genesis. The theme of A Shore Thing is well summarized by Genesis 1:26: “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let him rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth , and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’”

Although they have very different opinions about how to rule over God’s creation, Callie and Gage share many of the same beliefs and ideals. One similarity that continually ties these two characters together is their faith in God and their love for His creation. Throughout the book, Carobini emphasizes the power of prayer, the necessity of trusting God, and the helpful reminder that first impressions are not always correct.

Overall, the characters are well-developed and the plotline is convincing. However, as someone who is not typically involved in environmental issues, I had a hard time staying interested in the story and relating to the characters’ motives. Therefore, I would recommend this book to Christian women who enjoy romance novels from an eco-friendly perspective. – Kara Hackett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
