Sea turtles may be endangered but after an encounter with marine biologist, Jack Brandon, nothing will stop Sara Hart from naming her deli Turtle Soup.
When Jack takes a job at the nearby Georgia Aquarium, Sara finds the environmental poster boy at her door, hungry and carrying a chip on his shoulder.
Neither thinks the other has what it takes, until a scuba class reveals what lies beneath the surface. It will take food, friends, and a little help from Mother Nature, to help them see that making a difference isn't all numbers and glory.
It must begin with love.
I thought this was such a sweet story. A story of love lost and the ability to find love again. Both Jack and Sara have lost significant people in their lives due to death, and that makes for a hard story to write. I think Ms. Thorne found the right mix of detail without harping on the sadness of the deaths. I enjoyed all the tension between Jack and Sara. They really can't stand each other at the beginning, but Sara learns to trust him. Ms. Thorne does a great job writing, and giving the characters a life of their own. I really liked the depth of Jack. He has to learn to open up and trust again too. I liked using sea turtle research as Jack's passion.
