Unexpected Love by Andrea Boeshaar Book Review/Giveaway

Lorenna Fields is competent nurse, loving, caring, kind and prone to emotional attachment to her patients.  There was a particular patient who she nursed who was not only blind, but had amnesia.  As a single woman, she felt captivated by this handsome man and very glad he could not see her very ugly birthmark.  Soon the patient regains his memory and turns out to be a missing sailor.  Renna and the captain begin to have feelings for each other, but the captain also begins to regain his eyesight.  He keeps the pretense that he is blind so Renna will feel comfortable with him and also as a precaution to find out who tampered with his ship that caused his accident.  Renna feels that no man will ever love her because of her birthmark and especially not a wealthy and handsome captain.  Will Renna find her true soul mate in Unexpected Love by Andrea Boeshaar?

I love old fashioned love stories and this is one of them.  Even though Renna is insecure about her appearance, she is very intellectual and is very bold to stand up for what she believes in.  The love story is sweet and evenly paced and the mystery is somewhat predictable, but blends well with the plot.  This was a great story in which to get lost and I would love to read more by Andrea Boeshaar.
