"Message in a Bottle"
"A Surf's Up Novella"
By Beth Wiseman
One man. Two women. A child desperate for medical treatment. How can Kyle choose between the woman he once loved and his current fiancée? Is there a solution that suits all involved, or will someone end up out of the triangle forever? Morgan Calhoun and her parents are whisked away in the middle of the night, something Morgan always knew was a possibility because of her father's CIA job. But she'd always thought if such a scenario played out that she would have time to say goodbye to those she loved—particularly her boyfriend, Kyle. Adding to her unbearable situation, several weeks after the move, Morgan finds out that she's pregnant. Kyle Brossmann doesn't even get a break-up letter from Morgan. She's just gone, along with her parents. His heart broken, Kyle continues with his plans. He graduates from high school and attends college, where he meets his fiancée, Lexie. But two men visit Kyle and encourage him to travel to an undisclosed location, where he will meet his five-year-old daughter. Rocked by the news that he has a child, Kyle learns he is the only person who might be able to save his daughter's life. Will Kyle choose his first love and his daughter? Or will he stay with Lexie and live the life they’ve been planning? Each Surf’s Up novella takes the reader to a beach locale, weaving romance and adventure into a soul-soothing journey of hope.

What can I say about this novella???? Well, it is written by a most outstanding author, Beth Wiseman , who is also the creator of many popular, award winning novels. She also happens to be at the top of my list of favorite authors!!!
Beth writes all of her books with her unique talent of making one feel a part of the story. The reader immediately becomes thoroughly engaged with the characters and lives their lives alongside them. This novella was no disappointment. It met all of my personal requirements to be a good book. The only negative comment I have , is that the story ended far too soon!! I am certainly thankful that this is the second in Beth's Surf's Up series!! There is definitely more to come!! The intense struggles that Kyle experienced were felt deep within as he met giant roadblocks in every part of his life. A good man, with seemingly insurmountable problems!! Morgan's emotional roller coaster of a life, sent me to deep despair at times, at others, had me rejoicing with her.
The plot is intense and moves quickly with totally unexpected twists and turns. Amazingly , for a novella, it is packed with action that flows from one crisis to the next. The conflicts were very real and oh my, there were many!!!
The underlying theme in this novella outshone all the troubles!! God is always present in our lives, whether we realize it or not. He is ready and willing to be called upon. We must trust in Him through our troubles and He will see us through.
An amazing novella!! Don't miss it!!
Definitely five stars for this book!!
