Tomorrow Belongs to Us - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Tomorrow Belongs to Us
by Lynda Dunwell


What is it about:
Drawn into espionage by navy officer Edwin Hardie, Lucy Mainwaring is advised by her diplomat uncle, who is Hardie’s superior, to accept Edwin’s marriage proposal. Believing the offer, although honourable, is made without true affection, she refuses him but agrees to get to know him better during an Atlantic voyage to a peace conference in America. They embark on RMS Titanic but who will reach New York?

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
A nice read.

The romance storyline is sweet and has little drama to it. Lucy and Edwin are a cute couple who just need to get to know each other better to really connect. Nothing better than the sinking of the ship they're travelling on to get that job done. The one complaint I have is that the first part of the story felt slow and it took an awfully long time for them to actually get on board of the Titanic.

The espionage part of the story could have used some work as well. I sometimes wondered why it was introduced to the story at all, apart from it being the story hook that makes Edwin propose to Lucy. I didn't much care for this part of the story.

The use of the Titanic was done very well. I liked how Dunwell used people who actually were on board of the Titanic in her story to make it all feel more real to me without making them lose their dignity. The actual sinking and the rescue of the survivors were also well researched.

So in the end this was a nice and cute romance that uses the sinking of the Titanic as a plot device to bring the two lovers closer to each other. Not the best Titanic story I read, but certainly not the worst either.

Why should you read it:
It's a pleasant romance set partially on the Titanic.
