    DNFed at 45%; this wasn?t awful, but the writing is very low-quality and the narrative very unengaging. It takes an ocean disaster and turns it into a story of a love triangle and a disgraced writer. And how about that love triangle, huh? One criminal, one southern belle, and the ...

    Absolutely amazing! ...

    What good fun this book was! That's probably a strange thing to say about a tragic event in history, but the book's strong suits hit my sweet spot--WWI, spies, a little mystery, and a bit of a love story. I gobbled it up in just a couple of days. I kept seeing the Titanic film playing ...

    Hmmm. Still trying to decide about this book 3.5 rounded up. I liked the story. I had a hard time with the characters. I found I really enjoyed Caroline?s and Sarah?s story. Tess fell flat for me. This story was more about the romance and less about everything else. I love all the ...

    I very much enjoyed the book. You have to know there will be sadness. You can't read a book about the Lusitania and not have sadness! But all the characters you are primarily involved with come out on top, for the most part. I enjoyed the mystery involved of who is spying on who and wh...

    The alternating POV chapters in this didn't really work for me, because I didn't like Caroline, I was meh on Tess, and I liked Sarah a lot, but her story obviously got the least amount of attention. I would have happily just read a novel about her. The rest was sort of disappointing. ...

    This was a terrific collaboration between three fabulous authors and it kept me riveted. This had everything a reader can't resist: appealing people, tangled love affairs, the intriguing setting of the Lusitania, all splashed with a few tears at the end. Each author created a set of di...

    This was between 3 and 4 stars. I'm not sure if I'll be rounding up or down. I like Karen White as an author. I've read many of her books. I love her way with words and her stories. I've read fewer books by Beatriz Williams. She tends to be a little too 'sweet' for me. I found that to ...

    Great story about the Lusitania ship and it?s sinking. The bulk of the book goes between two different time lines, one in present day and the other in 1915. It follows a relationship in each which centers around a mystery/romance/espionage/family history... much recommend as it?s a...

    I never enjoy a story based around a love triangle, which is what this turned out to be - two love triangles really. I preferred the contemporary story line to the historical ones, although there was a rather predictable turn of events near the end. ...

    LOVED this book! It combined so many of my favorite things and kept me guessing. I was initially unsure about 2 of the 3 POVs being in the same time (rather than 3 separate time periods), but I ended up loving that too. Everyone should look forward to its release in October! Fancy r...

    Solidly entertaining novel by three of my favorite novelist. A century apart, there are dual narratives in which mysteries unravel, one of the doomed Lusitania in 1915 and the other in 2013 with the descendants of the survivors of the famous ship. ...

    Solid start for all three women boarding the ill fated journey of the Lusitania. A wonderfully plotted, mysterious adventure and subterfuge for the whys and how?s of it?s so very real demise. Three romances that killed the characters and was cringeworthy, except for the tragic one....

    (Free review copy from publisher) Loved the historical aspect but honestly I still don?t fully understand the whole espionage angle and who was doing what. And the modern day romance fell pretty flat for me. However, I am VERY picky on certain things and I think that overall this ...

    Before the Titanic, there was the tragedy of the sinking of the passenger ship, the Lusitania, which was an event that forced the US into the first World War. In this carefully layered historical fiction novel, authors Williams, Willig and White bring us three stories of three women co...

    4 absorbing stars to The Glass Ocean! ? ? ? ? I?m a fan of each of these authors, and when they joined forces previously to co-author The Forgotten Room, magic happened multiplied by three. My brief gushing review of The Forgotten Room is on Goodreads. The Glass Ocean...

    Booking passage on the Lusitania or any ship during WWI would not seem like a good idea to me, but Caroline Hochstetter and Gilbert needed to get closer, and figured this would be a wonderful way to help their relationship. Did Gilbert really agree to the reason they were going on ...

    DNFed at 45%; this wasn?t awful, but the writing is very low-quality and the narrative very unengaging. It takes an ocean disaster and turns it into a story of a love triangle and a disgraced writer. And how about that love triangle, huh? One criminal, one southern belle, and the ...

    Three different narratives, one sinking ship. What is not to love here? This story is centered around the sinking of The Lusitania ship and is told in present day from a writer investigating a distant family member who was aboard, and two women, both of whom are hiding something - albe...

    4.5 rounded up to 5 brilliant Stars over the Glass Ocean! Several theories are still argued surrounding the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915. Was she merely a British passenger ship sailing back to England through dangerous waters during their war with Germany? Was she also carrying...

    THE GLASS OCEAN is a joined project by authors Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig and Karen White. It's a book about the fate of three women. Two of the women were on board the doomed passenger Line, RMS Lusitania. Although they differ in class. While Caroline Telfair Hochstetter is trave...

    There is so much to love in this beautifully written book! The glamour and sinking of the Lusitania, espionage and a love triangle. I loved reading the three different viewpoints in the story. Williams, Willig and White knocked it out of the park with The Glass Ocean! ...

    Absolutely amazing! ...

    What good fun this book was! That's probably a strange thing to say about a tragic event in history, but the book's strong suits hit my sweet spot--WWI, spies, a little mystery, and a bit of a love story. I gobbled it up in just a couple of days. I kept seeing the Titanic film playing ...

    Hmmm. Still trying to decide about this book 3.5 rounded up. I liked the story. I had a hard time with the characters. I found I really enjoyed Caroline?s and Sarah?s story. Tess fell flat for me. This story was more about the romance and less about everything else. I love all the ...

    I very much enjoyed the book. You have to know there will be sadness. You can't read a book about the Lusitania and not have sadness! But all the characters you are primarily involved with come out on top, for the most part. I enjoyed the mystery involved of who is spying on who and wh...

    4.25 Stars I have to admit that this is the first time that I've read a book authored by either Beatriz Williams or Lauren Willig, but I've been a long-time reader and fan of Karen White's books so when I saw that she had co-authored The Glass Ocean, I just knew I had to get my han...

    The alternating POV chapters in this didn't really work for me, because I didn't like Caroline, I was meh on Tess, and I liked Sarah a lot, but her story obviously got the least amount of attention. I would have happily just read a novel about her. The rest was sort of disappointing. ...

    This was a terrific collaboration between three fabulous authors and it kept me riveted. This had everything a reader can't resist: appealing people, tangled love affairs, the intriguing setting of the Lusitania, all splashed with a few tears at the end. Each author created a set of di...

    Loved this book!! Told by 2 women in the past and 1 in the present about the doomed Passenger ship... ...

    HOLY CRAP THIS SOUNDS AMAZING ...

    A love triangle, espionage, mystery, romance...and the backdrop of the sinking of Lusitania....brilliantly and beautifully written by the most wonderful trio of authors; The Glass Ocean is a masterpiece of storytelling. This compelling story is told from three points of view: modern da...

    This was between 3 and 4 stars. I'm not sure if I'll be rounding up or down. I like Karen White as an author. I've read many of her books. I love her way with words and her stories. I've read fewer books by Beatriz Williams. She tends to be a little too 'sweet' for me. I found that to ...

    Great story about the Lusitania ship and it?s sinking. The bulk of the book goes between two different time lines, one in present day and the other in 1915. It follows a relationship in each which centers around a mystery/romance/espionage/family history... much recommend as it?s a...

    I never enjoy a story based around a love triangle, which is what this turned out to be - two love triangles really. I preferred the contemporary story line to the historical ones, although there was a rather predictable turn of events near the end. ...

    3.5 ...

    LOVED this book! It combined so many of my favorite things and kept me guessing. I was initially unsure about 2 of the 3 POVs being in the same time (rather than 3 separate time periods), but I ended up loving that too. Everyone should look forward to its release in October! Fancy r...

    Solidly entertaining novel by three of my favorite novelist. A century apart, there are dual narratives in which mysteries unravel, one of the doomed Lusitania in 1915 and the other in 2013 with the descendants of the survivors of the famous ship. ...

    Solid start for all three women boarding the ill fated journey of the Lusitania. A wonderfully plotted, mysterious adventure and subterfuge for the whys and how?s of it?s so very real demise. Three romances that killed the characters and was cringeworthy, except for the tragic one....

    (Free review copy from publisher) Loved the historical aspect but honestly I still don?t fully understand the whole espionage angle and who was doing what. And the modern day romance fell pretty flat for me. However, I am VERY picky on certain things and I think that overall this ...

    Before the Titanic, there was the tragedy of the sinking of the passenger ship, the Lusitania, which was an event that forced the US into the first World War. In this carefully layered historical fiction novel, authors Williams, Willig and White bring us three stories of three women co...

    This came very close to a 5 star read for me. Because of just a few minor things I didn't enjoy I give it a 4.5/5. Extremely well written book and it truly is seamless even though by all logic it had the potential to be a giant mess. It's written by 3 authors and told from the perspect...

    Ladies you outdid yourselves. Loved this book, story line was wonderful..excellent writing. Thank you for an enjoyable read! ...

    I was hooked by the beautiful cover of this novel. I loved that it transports me in location and time period. Told from 2 different times and by 3 strong voices i couldnt put it down. I have read each of these aurhoresses novels individually and loved the team W collaboration! ...

    Booking passage on the Lusitania or any ship during WWI would not seem like a good idea to me, but Caroline Hochstetter and Gilbert needed to get closer, and figured this would be a wonderful way to help their relationship. Did Gilbert really agree to the reason they were going on ...

    DNFed at 45%; this wasn?t awful, but the writing is very low-quality and the narrative very unengaging. It takes an ocean disaster and turns it into a story of a love triangle and a disgraced writer. And how about that love triangle, huh? One criminal, one southern belle, and the ...

    Three different narratives, one sinking ship. What is not to love here? This story is centered around the sinking of The Lusitania ship and is told in present day from a writer investigating a distant family member who was aboard, and two women, both of whom are hiding something - albe...

    4.5 rounded up to 5 brilliant Stars over the Glass Ocean! Several theories are still argued surrounding the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915. Was she merely a British passenger ship sailing back to England through dangerous waters during their war with Germany? Was she also carrying...

    THE GLASS OCEAN is a joined project by authors Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig and Karen White. It's a book about the fate of three women. Two of the women were on board the doomed passenger Line, RMS Lusitania. Although they differ in class. While Caroline Telfair Hochstetter is trave...

    There is so much to love in this beautifully written book! The glamour and sinking of the Lusitania, espionage and a love triangle. I loved reading the three different viewpoints in the story. Williams, Willig and White knocked it out of the park with The Glass Ocean! ...

    Absolutely amazing! ...

    What good fun this book was! That's probably a strange thing to say about a tragic event in history, but the book's strong suits hit my sweet spot--WWI, spies, a little mystery, and a bit of a love story. I gobbled it up in just a couple of days. I kept seeing the Titanic film playing ...

    Hmmm. Still trying to decide about this book 3.5 rounded up. I liked the story. I had a hard time with the characters. I found I really enjoyed Caroline?s and Sarah?s story. Tess fell flat for me. This story was more about the romance and less about everything else. I love all the ...

    I very much enjoyed the book. You have to know there will be sadness. You can't read a book about the Lusitania and not have sadness! But all the characters you are primarily involved with come out on top, for the most part. I enjoyed the mystery involved of who is spying on who and wh...

    4.25 Stars I have to admit that this is the first time that I've read a book authored by either Beatriz Williams or Lauren Willig, but I've been a long-time reader and fan of Karen White's books so when I saw that she had co-authored The Glass Ocean, I just knew I had to get my han...

    The alternating POV chapters in this didn't really work for me, because I didn't like Caroline, I was meh on Tess, and I liked Sarah a lot, but her story obviously got the least amount of attention. I would have happily just read a novel about her. The rest was sort of disappointing. ...

    This was a terrific collaboration between three fabulous authors and it kept me riveted. This had everything a reader can't resist: appealing people, tangled love affairs, the intriguing setting of the Lusitania, all splashed with a few tears at the end. Each author created a set of di...

    HOLY CRAP THIS SOUNDS AMAZING ...

    A love triangle, espionage, mystery, romance...and the backdrop of the sinking of Lusitania....brilliantly and beautifully written by the most wonderful trio of authors; The Glass Ocean is a masterpiece of storytelling. This compelling story is told from three points of view: modern da...

    This was between 3 and 4 stars. I'm not sure if I'll be rounding up or down. I like Karen White as an author. I've read many of her books. I love her way with words and her stories. I've read fewer books by Beatriz Williams. She tends to be a little too 'sweet' for me. I found that to ...

    Great story about the Lusitania ship and it?s sinking. The bulk of the book goes between two different time lines, one in present day and the other in 1915. It follows a relationship in each which centers around a mystery/romance/espionage/family history... much recommend as it?s a...

    I never enjoy a story based around a love triangle, which is what this turned out to be - two love triangles really. I preferred the contemporary story line to the historical ones, although there was a rather predictable turn of events near the end. ...

    3.5 ...

    LOVED this book! It combined so many of my favorite things and kept me guessing. I was initially unsure about 2 of the 3 POVs being in the same time (rather than 3 separate time periods), but I ended up loving that too. Everyone should look forward to its release in October! Fancy r...

    Solidly entertaining novel by three of my favorite novelist. A century apart, there are dual narratives in which mysteries unravel, one of the doomed Lusitania in 1915 and the other in 2013 with the descendants of the survivors of the famous ship. ...

    Solid start for all three women boarding the ill fated journey of the Lusitania. A wonderfully plotted, mysterious adventure and subterfuge for the whys and how?s of it?s so very real demise. Three romances that killed the characters and was cringeworthy, except for the tragic one....

    (Free review copy from publisher) Loved the historical aspect but honestly I still don?t fully understand the whole espionage angle and who was doing what. And the modern day romance fell pretty flat for me. However, I am VERY picky on certain things and I think that overall this ...

    Before the Titanic, there was the tragedy of the sinking of the passenger ship, the Lusitania, which was an event that forced the US into the first World War. In this carefully layered historical fiction novel, authors Williams, Willig and White bring us three stories of three women co...

    This came very close to a 5 star read for me. Because of just a few minor things I didn't enjoy I give it a 4.5/5. Extremely well written book and it truly is seamless even though by all logic it had the potential to be a giant mess. It's written by 3 authors and told from the perspect...

    Ladies you outdid yourselves. Loved this book, story line was wonderful..excellent writing. Thank you for an enjoyable read! ...

    Booking passage on the Lusitania or any ship during WWI would not seem like a good idea to me, but Caroline Hochstetter and Gilbert needed to get closer, and figured this would be a wonderful way to help their relationship. Did Gilbert really agree to the reason they were going on ...

    DNFed at 45%; this wasn?t awful, but the writing is very low-quality and the narrative very unengaging. It takes an ocean disaster and turns it into a story of a love triangle and a disgraced writer. And how about that love triangle, huh? One criminal, one southern belle, and the ...

    Three different narratives, one sinking ship. What is not to love here? This story is centered around the sinking of The Lusitania ship and is told in present day from a writer investigating a distant family member who was aboard, and two women, both of whom are hiding something - albe...

    THE GLASS OCEAN is a joined project by authors Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig and Karen White. It's a book about the fate of three women. Two of the women were on board the doomed passenger Line, RMS Lusitania. Although they differ in class. While Caroline Telfair Hochstetter is trave...

    There is so much to love in this beautifully written book! The glamour and sinking of the Lusitania, espionage and a love triangle. I loved reading the three different viewpoints in the story. Williams, Willig and White knocked it out of the park with The Glass Ocean! ...

    Absolutely amazing! ...

    What good fun this book was! That's probably a strange thing to say about a tragic event in history, but the book's strong suits hit my sweet spot--WWI, spies, a little mystery, and a bit of a love story. I gobbled it up in just a couple of days. I kept seeing the Titanic film playing ...

    Hmmm. Still trying to decide about this book 3.5 rounded up. I liked the story. I had a hard time with the characters. I found I really enjoyed Caroline?s and Sarah?s story. Tess fell flat for me. This story was more about the romance and less about everything else. I love all the ...

    I very much enjoyed the book. You have to know there will be sadness. You can't read a book about the Lusitania and not have sadness! But all the characters you are primarily involved with come out on top, for the most part. I enjoyed the mystery involved of who is spying on who and wh...

    4.25 Stars I have to admit that this is the first time that I've read a book authored by either Beatriz Williams or Lauren Willig, but I've been a long-time reader and fan of Karen White's books so when I saw that she had co-authored The Glass Ocean, I just knew I had to get my han...

    The alternating POV chapters in this didn't really work for me, because I didn't like Caroline, I was meh on Tess, and I liked Sarah a lot, but her story obviously got the least amount of attention. I would have happily just read a novel about her. The rest was sort of disappointing. ...

    This was a terrific collaboration between three fabulous authors and it kept me riveted. This had everything a reader can't resist: appealing people, tangled love affairs, the intriguing setting of the Lusitania, all splashed with a few tears at the end. Each author created a set of di...

    Loved this book!! Told by 2 women in the past and 1 in the present about the doomed Passenger ship... ...

    HOLY CRAP THIS SOUNDS AMAZING ...

    A love triangle, espionage, mystery, romance...and the backdrop of the sinking of Lusitania....brilliantly and beautifully written by the most wonderful trio of authors; The Glass Ocean is a masterpiece of storytelling. This compelling story is told from three points of view: modern da...

    This was between 3 and 4 stars. I'm not sure if I'll be rounding up or down. I like Karen White as an author. I've read many of her books. I love her way with words and her stories. I've read fewer books by Beatriz Williams. She tends to be a little too 'sweet' for me. I found that to ...

    Great story about the Lusitania ship and it?s sinking. The bulk of the book goes between two different time lines, one in present day and the other in 1915. It follows a relationship in each which centers around a mystery/romance/espionage/family history... much recommend as it?s a...

    I never enjoy a story based around a love triangle, which is what this turned out to be - two love triangles really. I preferred the contemporary story line to the historical ones, although there was a rather predictable turn of events near the end. ...

    3.5 ...

    LOVED this book! It combined so many of my favorite things and kept me guessing. I was initially unsure about 2 of the 3 POVs being in the same time (rather than 3 separate time periods), but I ended up loving that too. Everyone should look forward to its release in October! Fancy r...

    Solidly entertaining novel by three of my favorite novelist. A century apart, there are dual narratives in which mysteries unravel, one of the doomed Lusitania in 1915 and the other in 2013 with the descendants of the survivors of the famous ship. ...

    Solid start for all three women boarding the ill fated journey of the Lusitania. A wonderfully plotted, mysterious adventure and subterfuge for the whys and how?s of it?s so very real demise. Three romances that killed the characters and was cringeworthy, except for the tragic one....

    (Free review copy from publisher) Loved the historical aspect but honestly I still don?t fully understand the whole espionage angle and who was doing what. And the modern day romance fell pretty flat for me. However, I am VERY picky on certain things and I think that overall this ...

    Before the Titanic, there was the tragedy of the sinking of the passenger ship, the Lusitania, which was an event that forced the US into the first World War. In this carefully layered historical fiction novel, authors Williams, Willig and White bring us three stories of three women co...

    This came very close to a 5 star read for me. Because of just a few minor things I didn't enjoy I give it a 4.5/5. Extremely well written book and it truly is seamless even though by all logic it had the potential to be a giant mess. It's written by 3 authors and told from the perspect...
