A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Decidely a Karen Witemeyer fan, I enjoyed Full Steam Ahead just as much as her other novels. Full of spunk, sass, sauciness, faith, hooligans, a dapper bachelor, a determined heroine and good-old-fashioned historical romance, the author also threw in a storyline surrounding the shipping industry set in the mid-1800’s. Definitely a good, clean read with a bit of mischief, mystery and adventure included. Worth the read, worth the time and worth a spot on the bookshelf…Full Steam Ahead was a fun novel with a bit of knowledge intertwined. I look forward to this author’s next book already!
