By Love or By Sea by Rachel Rager

From the Cover:
Alice Lind Frank never forgot the boy she loved when she was just six years old, even after he was lost at sea. Now a young woman, Alice has found happiness in living and working with her grandparents, and in the affections of Clarence Hielott, the wealthy shipyard owner who intends to make Alice his bride.

When a ragged sailor appears in town, Alice is reminded of the young boy who once held her heart. Upon learning that the sailor is in fact her childhood love, Caleb, she finds herself falling for him again.

But Clarence refuses to let this ghost from the past destroy his plans for the future. He exposes the secrets of Caleb’s past, and Alice realizes that the boy she once knew is now a man with a dark history. Soon Caleb and Clarence are locked in a fierce competition for Alice’s heart.

Tifferz Take:
I highly recommend this book!! If you like romance with a little mystery this is the book for you. I was swept into the story very quickly and was hooked. Rachel did an great job with character development and the flow of the story. This book just made me happy. This is a super clean read with some good kissing. I am looking forward to more of Rachel's books. You can't go wrong with this book. I purchased this book.
