Litfuse Blog Tour: Beyond All Dreams by Elizabeth Camden (My Review)

The Story:
Anna O’Brien leads a predictable and quiet life as a map librarian at the illustrious Library of Congress until she stumbles across the baffling mystery of a ship disappeared at sea. Thwarted in her attempts to uncover information, her determination outweighs her shyness and she turns to a dashing congressman for help.

Luke Callahan was one of the nation’s most powerful congressmen before his promising career was shadowed in scandal. Eager to share in a new cause and intrigued by the winsome librarian, he joins forces with Anna to solve the mystery of the lost ship. Opposites in every way, Anna and Luke are unexpectedly drawn to each other despite the strict rules forbidding Anna from any romantic entanglements with members of Congress.

From the gilded halls of the Capitol where powerful men shape the future of the nation, to the scholarly archives of the nation’s finest library, Anna and Luke are soon embroiled in secrets much bigger and more perilous than they ever imagined. Is bringing the truth to light worth risking all they’ve ever dreamed for their futures?

My Thoughts:
I've been going through something of a reading funk these past few months and the fact that I read through this book in under 24 hours is a bit of a miracle. If a book doesn't grab my attention right away, I find myself setting it aside. These days I'm short on reading time so I have to make the best of it!

Beyond All Dreams captured my fancy last year when I was making my book wishlist and surprisingly this one really lived up to my high expectations. With chemistry fairly popping off of the pages, I was hooked. A few times I hit stumbling blocks with the hero, Luke (he seemed a bit too aggressive and he really jumped the gun when it came to confronting Anna with his feelings), but overall the story was interesting and unique. I LOVED the fact that it was set in 1898 and mentioned the Spanish- American War even though it was highly fictionalized. When's the last time you read a historical romance with a congressman as a hero and relations with Spain in question? Exactly. Probably rarely or never.

Beyond All Dreams is a romance that I think will appeal to a lot of readers. Even though it's Christian fiction, I didn't find it preachy in the least. I haven't read most of this authors previous novels, but I'm really considering catching up on those titles since this story was good!
