What I think you should know:
Stealing the First Mate a contemporary Christian fiction by Tabitha Bouldin is the eleventh book in the Independence Island Series and the fifth book set on Elnora Island. This book features several characters from previous books and does give spoilers for those characters, however it can be read as a standalone.

What I think about this book:
OH MY heart, I think that this is my favorite book in the series so far, I cannot say enough great things about this book! Darcy may not be my favorite heroine, but Nigel is definitely my favorite so far. Mr Riggins is the worst villain I have read in a long time. He let down a kid who trusted him, and used his knowledge to make him miserable for the better part of a decade. Nigel made the wrong choice as an 18 year old and it has kept him from understanding his worth since. My heart ached for him. I wanted to smack Darcy upside to head for her to realize the love that was right in front of her. The message of Forgiveness and truly giving your worries to God was beautiful even if it was hard learned for the characters.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own. ( )

I absolutely love reading the books of The Independence Islands series, and Stealing the First Mate lived up to my expectations. Darcy Riggins and Nigel Jones have been best friends for years. But a secret Nigel carries from his past could destroy their relationship. Plus, Darcy’s dad committed to keeping them apart.

The author does an excellent job of illustrating how our own feelings and guilt potentially affect everyone and everything around us. However, something occurs that changes everything. I love how Darcy’s family and their friends help bring this story to life. With a boat with pirates, horseback riding, dolphins, whales, and more, this book will keep you reading. It provides the perfect summer book or anytime you want to relive beach experiences. So check it out for yourself.

Stealing the First Mate begs the question, can friends become more-especially after Dad has said, “NO!!!”?

I enjoyed the story as Tabitha Bouldin writes about characters in a true-to-life fashion with all their quirks and foibles laid out for everyone to see. The main characters, Darcy Riggins and Nigel Jones, have rough seas to navigate to reach their romance. Nonetheless, they prevail through personal, turbulent waters drawing on their faith to keep them afloat.

Tabitha Bouldin is a new author to me, but this won’t be the last book of hers I read!

Stealing the First Mate, by Tabitha Bouldin, is the 11th story in the Independence Island Series. However, like the others in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone.

A satisfyingly pleasant friend-to-romance story, reading Stealing the First Mate is a grand way to kick back and lounge around the beach or at home while enjoying a novel.

Friends to more is one of my favorite tropes in contemporary romance. There’s just something about a love that grows out of friendship that ensures it will last through the highs and the lows of life.

Stealing the First Mate by Tabitha Bouldin also includes the unrequited love trope because for Nigel, Darcy as anything other than his best friend is off limits.

This is a great beach read, something to take along with you to the pool, lake, or park that leaves you satisfied at the end. The pirate-themed tours add a fun element to the story, but the heart of this book lies in the friendships and faith of the likable characters.

There is nothing better than reading a story from this series. This one is particularly good because it has our two main characters as best friends. Nigel and Darcy have been friends since first grade. I thought it was so cute that they bonded and still to this day rely on each other. I have lost contact with all my friends from elementary school but still remember some of them. With a job as pirates on Darcy’s dad’s boat they seem to do most everything together.

Darcy sure puts up a fight about her feelings for Nigel and it did become frustrating at times. I know she was in love with Nigel but she keeps dating other people. She is looking for the right one. Guess she doesn’t know that she already has him. Darcy for some reason doesn’t think she is good enough for someone. Every date she goes on she finds fault with them. I think it is just a reason for her to avoid rejection and hurt.

Nigel is sure who he wants to spend the rest of his life with, but Darcy doesn’t get it yet. I love these type of stories because we get a glimpse into their past and see how God works things out for good. There is a secret he has been keeping from Darcy and when it is exposed I felt such empathy for Nigel. Darcy’s dad has something against Nigel and knows his secret. What is sad is that Darcy’s dad could have helped Nigel at a time he needed it most. The word judgmental plays a big part in this story and the author gives a great lesson on how it affects others.

I loved the faith element in the story and how it shows how God is there in our darkest moments. He heals our broken heart and exposes the enemies lies. Nigel was my favorite character because he was a compassionate person who always tried to protect Darcy from harm. The ending is good and made me smile. This is another great story in an amazing series.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. ( )
