Life, Liberty, and Pursuit - Susan K. Quinn Sweet and Satisfying YA Romance!

Susan Kaye Quinn has created a warm, wet world in her debut novel Life, Liberty, and Pursuit. Eliza and David meet when he rescues her from falling into a swimming pool, and they continue to have cruise ship adventures on their whirlwind romance until they're faced with the saddening prospect of a long-distance relationship. Susan keeps the reader in suspense the entire novel about what choices Eliza and David will make in navigating their murky future.

At first I thought "Here we go again with another wimpy damsel in distress" but I was very pleasantly surprised when Eliza proves her own mettle by rescuing David right back. They throw out a metaphorical life raft to each other, not only to save a life but also to save liberty and pursuit. I thoroughly enjoyed how their love and support enabled each to develop and to reach new heights. They became stronger individuals as a result of their union. As the character Nicholas states on page 191, "That's what love is supposed to be like. It's supposed to make you better." I couldn't agree more. A wonderful read, Susan!
