About the Book

Book: Love Like No Other

Author: Tabitha Bouldin

Genre: Christian Contemporary Suspense

Release Date: June 27, 2023

Trying to overcome a past like hers might just help him overcome his.

Alicia Gray wants one thing: to prove her capabilities as a doctor. Maybe then she can escape the feeling that her mother’s abandonment was deserved. She’s never felt worthy and grew up in foster home after foster home, always being told that if she did better, if she was more amenable, she’d find her place. When she came to Suamalie, the last thing she expected to find was a man whose grumpy personality conflicted so piercingly with her sunshine demeanor.

Colin Tremblay was dishonorably discharged from his army medic position and sent home in disgrace after his twin brother stole from his clinic. Back on the islands, he’s bounced from job to job, never finding anything that satisfies him. To make matters worse, his twin niece and nephew convince him to spend his summer overseeing their camp activities while working alongside Little Miss Sunshine herself.

This grumpy versus sunshine romance is sure to send them both scrambling when Colin confronts Alicia’s need to please while she reminds Colin that not every bad day is a reason to run for the hills.

Take a trip to the Suamalie Islands where palm trees sway, the sand and sea pulse with life, and the people will steal your heart.

My Review

4 stars

Tabitha Bouldin pulls the reader into the story with a great opening scene, immediately setting up the grumpy-sunshine trope.

Both Alicia Gray and Colin Tremblay have suffered tragedy in their lives. Alicia chooses to rely on God and has worked hard to stay positive in difficult circumstances. Colin is having a crisis of faith and blames God for the bad things in his life. Both must learn to confront their weaknesses while volunteering at a summer camp for kids.

I liked the way Bouldin used Colin’s niece and nephew to show his softer side. This counterbalances Colin’s hot-cold response to people. He could be a real jerk. In the end Alicia and Colin end up helping each other overcome some of their greatest weaknesses.

The romance aspect of the book was very light. Mostly mention of attraction and trying not to fall in love. I was a little disappointed in this. The ending felt rushed and left me questioning a happily ever after between the two.

Overall, fans of clean romance or Christian romance will find the story engaging. The characters’ struggles provide plenty of interesting drama and even comic relief.

Genre: Christian Romance, Clean Romance

Location: Suamalie Islands

Romance: Light kissing and attraction.

Faith: Alicia prays and tries to do the right thing. Colin struggles with his faith and must learn to stop railing against God.

More from Tabitha

When it came time to write my Suamalie Island book, I knew it was time for me to head back to the place I love best. It was time to bring back the cowboys. Colin might not be a cowboy in his own mind, after all, he left the ranch and worked for years as an Army medic and wants nothing more than to help people as a way to make up for not being able to save his brother when he needed it most. Alicia, the island’s resident mobile doctor, feels the same way. You would think that these two would manage to get along since they both want the same thing. Not so. They disagreed on almost everything. From a personality perspective, they couldn’t be more different. Alicia is sunshine and rainbows to Colin’s storm clouds. The one thing they can agree on is helping others, and when things get tough, Colin is the one person who Alicia finds she can trust to follow through and not back down from the hard aspects like throws their way. And threaded through it all is Colin’s cowboy past and the heart that carried him across the battlefield and back to the islands he’s always called home.
