Laurie Larsen's popular series of inspirational romance continues with Book 4: Capsized. Heartwarming, life-changing Christian fiction.

God "overseas" everything....

For nursing student Sadie Flynn, life is about helping those in need and decompressing with the thrill of extreme sports. After witnessing the destruction of her parents' marriage, Sadie wants nothing to do with love and romance. She's fine setting goals and achieving them alone--without a man to derail her plans.

Personal trainer and competitive yacht sailor, Jett Martin is a disappointment to his father, who always wanted his son to follow in his footsteps, as a tough military fighter. But Jett is nothing like his father. With his new invention gaining interest in the sailing world and an upcoming competition to prove his worth, Jett is on his way to his own version of the top. But when an injury threatens to destroy his chances for credibility and a lucrative future, he knows he needs help.

The courageous and risk-taking Sadie is the answer to his prayers. With his expertise and her strength, they're an unbeatable pair. With physical attraction tempting them, Sadie and Jett must keep their eyes on the prize. But God has other plans. As they face adversity and danger, will God's will have them racing toward one another instead of the glory of the win?

About the Author

If you had asked an eight-year-old Laurie, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” she would’ve said, “Live at the beach and write novels.” Such an enlightened girl for knowing at such a young age what her destiny would be. Now, almost five decades later (but not quite), that’s still her dream. And she’s making it happen.

Twenty years ago, while she was building a successful career with a huge corporation, she started writing her first book. That effort turned out to be her first published novel, Whispers of the Heart which released in early 2000. From then on, the act of writing took a fierce hold on her. She has now written and published close to twenty novels, and for eighteen years, she split her time/effort/passion between the afore-mentioned big, demanding dayjob and her writing career.

In 2016, Laurie and her husband bought their future dream home in coastal South Carolina. In early 2018, Laurie left the corporate world behind, retiring after 34 years and a ton of professional accomplishments.
That eight-year-old dream is almost a reality. Some dreams are worth waiting for.

Outside of her professional life, Laurie and her husband of 29 years have an empty nest, after raising two wonderful and talented sons. They are both educated and self-sufficient, working in their own careers and making Mom and Dad proud on a daily basis. Laurie is a dog lover. Growing up alongside Laurie’s two sons was Gracie the Wonder Dog, who sadly, they lost just last year. Both boys have their own dogs now, so Laurie enjoys spending time and lavishing kisses on her two grand-puppies, Izzy and Buster.

Laurie is a huge theater fan and goes to as much live theater as she can. And of course, her favorite place in the world is the beach.

Laurie writes life-changing, heartwarming inspirational Christian fiction that takes place at the beach. She’s actively looking for fans who enjoys that type of book and looks forward to adding them into the fold of her supportive Reader Group. Visit her website for all the latest:

I loved reading Capsized. Normally action-adventure mystery (Steve Berry) or historical fiction (Ken Follett) fill my reading hours, but this was a welcomed change. The characters are easy to get to know and pulled me in. It was enjoyable going to sea with Sadie and Jett. I really wanted to see their relationship put upright.”

Laurie has a wonderful way of developing her characters in her books so that you can envision them during their story. "Capsized" is no exception. It is the 4th book in this series and we get to understand more about Sadie in this book. She is strong and independent and never thought about a relationship with any man considering what she saw her mom and dad go through. After having Jett has her athletic trainer, she never thought she would ever develop any kind of relationship with him, but found herself in quite a struggle of emotions for this man. Laurie's books always have unexpected surprises and this book does not disappoint. I could not put this book down until I finished it. Let Laurie take you on yet another journey of fear, sadness, love, and laughter. I highly recommend this book!

“Capsized” will Inspire You to Try Something New! My mind went to a different place when I read the title “Capsized!” However, as I turned each page my interest in the characters piqued during this 4th novel in the Murrell’s Inlet series. Sadie Flynn is an exciting young lady who inspires readers to challenge themselves to participate in sports that test your abilities and endurance. She’s also a talented and serious nursing student. Wow what inspiration young women can draw from her life! The re-introduction of Sadie’s Dad, Shaw and his love interest Nora brought back good memories of their beginning from another novel. Laurie Larsen has a unique way of writing that makes you feel like you’re reading about your own family and friends. You always meet old favorites in her novels. After catching up with Sadie, Shaw, and Nora you meet a new charming trainer/sailing expert Jett Martin. It’s a story about Sadie and Jett, their friendship, commitment, team work, and budding love set in an exciting fight to the finish Yacht Race. I enjoy a book where I learn something new and Yacht Racing was new to me! I couldn’t stop reading this book!

Sadie Flynn is focused on completing her nursing degree and finishing a marathon in each of the 50 states. She doesn’t have time for romance. Her personal trainer Jett Martin and Sadie are attracted to each other, but she fights it afraid it will get in the way of her goals. Jett competes in sailboat races and when Jett breaks some ribs training for a race, he asks Sadie to be his first mate in his next race so he doesn’t lose a potential sponsor and investor in his new invention. When Sadie makes a rookie mistake that causes him to almost lose his boat and his chances with the sponsor, she feels awful and runs. Jett is luckier than he could imagine when the investor still wants him despite his struggles, but will Sadie ever let him back into her heart? This was a clean romance with lots of action. I loved reading about sailing and all that goes into it and all the extreme sports Sadie was looking into. It was also great to catch up with Sadie’s dad Shaw and the love of his life Nora from Sanctuary and read about the next chapter in their romance.

Capsized is another wonderful story from Laurie Larsen. The book works well as a stand alone, but I have read all the Murrells Inlet books. It is nice to get updates on the characters from previous books. I know almost nothing about sailing, but I felt like I was on the boat with Sadie and Jett. Both characters had a lot of baggage - Sadie from living the disaster that was her parents' marriage and Jett whose father is an abusive bully. Sadie is crewing for Jett who was injured preparing for a very important race. I liked the characters growth as they went on this adventure. This is a clean, Christian romance and I highly recommend it. Whenever I get a new book by Laurie Larsen, I sit down and consume it!

I love this author's style. Within this read we have a girl who has let fear govern her decisions when it came to relationships. She has however become very interested in extreme sports craving the adrenaline rush. He's helped her i the past and to become what she is and now he needs her help. Battling with his own baggage centering around a verbal and emotional bully of a father, both of them team up in a competition. He introduces her to the world of competitive yachting and she introduces him to prayer. Suffice it to say this is a clean read with biblical references and teachings. What this author does is incorporate it all so seamlessly into the story, that it flows through the story showing God's actions, and the scriptures that guide us through the understanding of the God we serve. She does all this and entertains you with a great story with characters we love too.
