A New Resolution
4 stars By Narelle Atkins, Jan 19 2013
I enjoyed reading this book. Anika (Ani) is a fascinating character with an indigenous islander heritage. She lacked parental guidance as a youngster and was rescued by distant relatives, Aunty and Uncle. Starved for love, Ani made a decision that changed the direction of her life.

Nate has lived a life of privilege in Texas and his decisions follow in the pleasure seeking footsteps of his father. His mother's untimely death sends him on a sailing adventure to far North Queensland.

The first third of the book provides the lead up to Ani and Nate's first meeting at Resolution, which I would have liked to have seen happen earlier in the story.  The sparks fly when they finally meet and a fun romance develops along with a mystery surrounding the source of the illegal fishing on nearby islands.

Ani and Nate discover their faith during the story and they have both experienced intimate relationships with previous partners. This aspect of their lives is explored in a realistic manner in the story. The level of sensuality is higher than the typical Christian romance and includes a bikini top wardrobe malfunction scene that could potentially offend some readers.

The story portrays the very real challenges facing those who seek to uphold Biblical standards of purity outside of marriage. It doesn't sugar coat the struggles facing people who are not used to suppressing their lustful desires.

I recommend A New Resolution to those looking for a realistic and edgy contemporary romance set in an Aussie tropical island paradise.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

Nice finish to the series
3 stars By Helen W, Dec 07 2012
This is the final book in the Resolution Island series.
 
Ani has had a difficult beginning, but she manages to pull herself together for the sake of her son. She thinks all is going well - a new life and a new job on Resolution Island.  Then her nerves are rattled by two occurrences: a child custody challenge, and the arrival of a charming, rich American, who is exactly the kind of man she despises.

Nate is a loveable and cute character - who can resist a charming man with a yacht? But Ani does her very best to try.

The characters of the earlier books are woven into the story in a subtle way and provide a link between Ani and Nate.  There is an illegal fishing mystery bound up in the story, although it wasn't quite as exciting an intrigue as the mysteries in the previous novels.

Each of the main characters draw on the influence of their Christian family, so they don't undergo an epic, unbelievable conversion.  Their drawing closer to God is very natural - like a logical conclusion - which is great as it does not have a preachy feel.

There's a fair amount of 'telling' in this book, so I didn't get as emotionally involved with the characters as I would have liked.  But overall this is a sweet story with a happy ending, and a nice finish to the Resolution series.

Satisfying conclusion
4 stars By Meredith, Nov 19 2012
Rose Dee has completed an engaging trilogy of novels set against the backdrop of a tropical Island off the coast of Queensland. This third and final title in the series has the same strong characters as the first two, adventure, mystery, and of course romance. If you haven't read Rose Dee before, let me recommend her as one of Australia's new Christian Fiction authors, definitely worth reading.

Great Conclusion to Series
5 stars By Iola, Nov 03 2012
Anika Demeur has always been determined to escape the curse of teenage pregnancy and solo parenthood, but still finds she is repeating her mother's mistakes. Together with her son, Kye, she accepts a job on Resolution Island on Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Life is good, until a letter-and the arrival of a rich Texan-threaten everything.

Nate is on a mission to fulfill his mother's last wish. But he didn't anticipate that keeping this promise would mean getting involved in illegal fishing, a murder-and an unexpected attraction to an exasperating woman who doesn't want anything to do with him.
I really enjoyed A New Resolution.  The characters are strong, the plot interesting, and I especially like the way the Christian elements were integrated into the story, in a way that felt quite realistic, without preaching or moralising.

I also enjoyed the developing relationship between Ani and Nate, the way the attraction was developed into a friendly relationship before either of them acknowledged that there might be something more than mere attraction. And the first kiss was great. 
Thanks to Rose Dee and Even Before Publishing for providing a free ebook for review.
