A Secret for the Lifeboat Sisters by author Tilly Tennant is the third installment in The Lifeboat Sisters Series.  I was so excited to return to beautiful Port Promise Bay. This amazing book is Gaby and Jillian’s story.  I was completely enthralled with this story from beginning to end.  This rapid read kept me totally engaged with the characters.  I felt connected to Gaby and what she had to go through.  The plot twist and turns kept me flipping pages at a rapid rate.  If you’re looking for a great escape to Port Promise Bay, and a story filled with unconditional love, this is the book to read.  This is a wonderful addition to this amazing series that can be enjoyed as a standalone.  I loved everything about this book and I highly recommend it.

As the sun warms the sand of Port Promise Bay and the sea is stained turquoise, Gaby Morrow is about to discover that her life is going to change forever…

As she looks through the window of Thistledown Cottage, her perfect home with its flower-filled garden and views of the sparkling, white-tipped waves, 
Gaby Morrowshould feel like she has it all. She watches her two gorgeous children race down to the golden beach and waves goodbye to her husband Kilian, his chestnut hair tousled as he heads off for another day working on the lifeboats. To her friends and family Gaby’s life looks wonderful, but deep down Gaby knows that this is a lie.

Recently Kilian has grown distant, a terrible tragedy at sea causing him to withdraw. Try as she might, Gaby can’t get her beloved husband to open up, and she knows Kilian has been lying about where he has been going. Gaby wants to believe she can trust him. But when she discovers that he has been keeping a secret that will change all their lives, will she ever be able to feel the same again?

Gaby’s sisters rally round in her hour of need and remind her of everything she has that is worth fighting for. But just as she makes her decision, she sees helicopters circling the sea and the call she has dreaded her whole life comes in. Kilian’s rescue mission has gone wrong. Will Gaby’s life be turned upside down all over again? And has she only realised what is truly important when it’s too late?

She wrote a novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and hasn’t stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor and part-time lecturer.
