Author: Kari Trumbo
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
Release date: September 27, 2022
Despite a career in logistics, Courtney is unprepared to get lost at sea…
A fated trip to the docks with her closest pal Annie leads to disaster. Ship Captain Lex Ford agrees to take Courtney and two of her friends on what was to be a quick trip to test a new boat. A dangerous storm traps them against a reef, damaging communications and stranding them at sea.
Lex knew this was a bad idea…
He hated having people on his ship with him. Ever since his partner left, he doesn’t share his life with anything but the seagulls. So, when Courtney’s friend Rafe offers him a deal on a new boat, he’d rather ignore the offer.
His heart isn’t ready for how he feels about Courtney, and watching her brave the elements after the storm makes him want to protect her. But the last woman he loved just walked away. And what about their age gap? He’s far older than her. The Lord is good at turning bad situations for good, but can even He make this mess right?
This Breakers Head novel is Kari Trumbo’s final novel in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

I find it astonishing how a writer can pick up the story in a series, write a sequel and be able to give the characters and the plot real cohesiveness, and Trumbo does it flawlessly.
The main characters in Kari Trumbo’s novella, Blessings in the Bargain, are two socially averse, broken individuals named Lex and Courtney. Due to a catastrophe with a boat they were invited on, they are forced to work together. After a brief island tour develops into days trapped on the boat, both are left reeling and trying to make the best of a bad situation.
Reading the story makes one feel for the characters and the situations they find themselves in. Their personalities and temperaments are merged in a realistic and relevant fashion, the setting is unique and the inclusion of a faith theme adds the ideal finishing touch.
Whether you’re cuddled up in front of the fire with your favorite hot beverage or stretched out in the sun on a lounge chair with your favorite cold drink, Blessings in the Bargain is the perfect book to read.
