Title: Driftwood Tides
Author: Gina Holmes
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (August 15, 2014)
Pages: 400

GINA HOLMES is one of the few authors I don’t give a second thought to purchasing her latest book. I don’t need to know the title, see the cover, read the synopsis. Nope. Just knowing she wrote it is good enough. To date I have read every GINA HOLEMS book published. There is no uncertainty when starting one of MS HOLMES books. I know I will be swept away into another world, and DRIFTWOOD TIDES is no exception.

Holton Creary is a struggling artist, though art is not the only thing he struggles with. His life is slipping away and the true tragedy is, he doesn't care.

Libby Slater may seem like she has it all, but something is missing from her life. When she makes the decision to go on the hurt for that missing piece, she couldn't possible know what she was headed into.

MS HOLMES continues to hold me in awe of her writing. Her stories in themselves are captivating, heartwarming and heart wrenching all in one. They will teach you and inspire you. An avid reader and writer, it is not often that I dog-ear, highlight, share with others and make a photocopy of as a reminder from fiction. Non-fiction, yes. Fiction, no.  That alone says a heap about MS HOLMES talent.

If her ability to create an amazing story was not enough, she is also an amazing writer in the sense of originality. MS HOLMES ability to create unique descriptions and phrases goes beyond the norm. When a writer does every aspect in writing well, it can be lethal.

My only hesitation in reading a HOLMES novel is the deep seeded desire it provokes to write my own story. I often want to run to my computer to write a great novel such as she. Must I even point out that I cannot wait for the next.
