    This book was a 2 rounded up to a 3. My review is going to be different from many that I?ve read so far. This book first had me disliking it, then liking it, then disliking it again. It didn?t help I guess that I had just watched Titanic with my granddaughter for about the 10th ti...

    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 ...

    EXCERPT: When I wasn't in a hurry, when I was just strolling or even sitting on a bench, eating a hot dog with ketchup and mustard but no onion, I liked to study them, my fellow New Yorkers. I liked to pick someone out from the crowd, some man in a suit, loosening his tie, checking his...

    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...

    I ... am .. speechless. No I?m not. I loved this book so much! LOVED it so much I DEVOURED it in one sitting. I want to read Erik Larson?s Dead Wake ... like tomorrow. Such incredible plot depth. It?s sexy, suspenseful, suspicious, scintillating and snazzy! It?s all the s?ss ...

    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...

    Three narrators, three authors and two points in history. With three experienced authors at the helm, I find myself curious how they went about this book. How did they divy up the sections, the characters, and how did they decide to write about this time period? Maybe more research ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    The tremendous trio of authors returns with an incredible story of a bestselling author who, searching for her next book idea, delves into the mystery of her great-grandfather, who died when the Lusitania sank. The story shifts between the present day and two women who were on the doom...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Great read! Have read a couple books by Williams and one by White, but Willig is new to me. I thought they did seamless job transitioning between stories. A little romance & mystery. A perfect read!! ...

    Two timelines; the past, 1915 and the present, 2015. Three female characters take the main lead in this historical mystery. But actually, if you want to get down to it, the above description gleaned from the book cover is not entirely true. There are more characters, both male and ...

    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... ...

    As far as historical fiction goes... 2.5 - At times I thought this book was very confusing... There are many good reviews for this book- so take my 2.5 with a grain of salt- I just didn't care for it like some others did.... ...

    HOLY CRAP THIS SOUNDS AMAZING ...

    This was a wonderful read! Good mystery and just enough romance to make it enjoyable. ...

    I took this book with me while cruising on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, but it's probably good that I didn't actually read it until we were home safe and sound on dry land. The Glass Ocean follows Caroline and her husband, Gilbert, as they board the ill-fated Lusitania during ...

    I ... am .. speechless. No I?m not. I loved this book so much! LOVED it so much I DEVOURED it in one sitting. I want to read Erik Larson?s Dead Wake ... like tomorrow. Such incredible plot depth. It?s sexy, suspenseful, suspicious, scintillating and snazzy! It?s all the s?ss ...

    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...

    Three narrators, three authors and two points in history. With three experienced authors at the helm, I find myself curious how they went about this book. How did they divy up the sections, the characters, and how did they decide to write about this time period? Maybe more research ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    The tremendous trio of authors returns with an incredible story of a bestselling author who, searching for her next book idea, delves into the mystery of her great-grandfather, who died when the Lusitania sank. The story shifts between the present day and two women who were on the doom...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Great read! Have read a couple books by Williams and one by White, but Willig is new to me. I thought they did seamless job transitioning between stories. A little romance & mystery. A perfect read!! ...

    Two timelines; the past, 1915 and the present, 2015. Three female characters take the main lead in this historical mystery. But actually, if you want to get down to it, the above description gleaned from the book cover is not entirely true. There are more characters, both male and ...

    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... ...

    As far as historical fiction goes... 2.5 - At times I thought this book was very confusing... There are many good reviews for this book- so take my 2.5 with a grain of salt- I just didn't care for it like some others did.... ...

    HOLY CRAP THIS SOUNDS AMAZING ...

    This was a wonderful read! Good mystery and just enough romance to make it enjoyable. ...

    This book was a 2 rounded up to a 3. My review is going to be different from many that I?ve read so far. This book first had me disliking it, then liking it, then disliking it again. It didn?t help I guess that I had just watched Titanic with my granddaughter for about the 10th ti...

    I took this book with me while cruising on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, but it's probably good that I didn't actually read it until we were home safe and sound on dry land. The Glass Ocean follows Caroline and her husband, Gilbert, as they board the ill-fated Lusitania during ...

    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...

    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. ...

    This book was a 2 rounded up to a 3. My review is going to be different from many that I?ve read so far. This book first had me disliking it, then liking it, then disliking it again. It didn?t help I guess that I had just watched Titanic with my granddaughter for about the 10th ti...

    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 ...

    EXCERPT: When I wasn't in a hurry, when I was just strolling or even sitting on a bench, eating a hot dog with ketchup and mustard but no onion, I liked to study them, my fellow New Yorkers. I liked to pick someone out from the crowd, some man in a suit, loosening his tie, checking his...

    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...

    I ... am .. speechless. No I?m not. I loved this book so much! LOVED it so much I DEVOURED it in one sitting. I want to read Erik Larson?s Dead Wake ... like tomorrow. Such incredible plot depth. It?s sexy, suspenseful, suspicious, scintillating and snazzy! It?s all the s?ss ...

    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...

    Three narrators, three authors and two points in history. With three experienced authors at the helm, I find myself curious how they went about this book. How did they divy up the sections, the characters, and how did they decide to write about this time period? Maybe more research ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    The tremendous trio of authors returns with an incredible story of a bestselling author who, searching for her next book idea, delves into the mystery of her great-grandfather, who died when the Lusitania sank. The story shifts between the present day and two women who were on the doom...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Great read! Have read a couple books by Williams and one by White, but Willig is new to me. I thought they did seamless job transitioning between stories. A little romance & mystery. A perfect read!! ...

    Two timelines; the past, 1915 and the present, 2015. Three female characters take the main lead in this historical mystery. But actually, if you want to get down to it, the above description gleaned from the book cover is not entirely true. There are more characters, both male and ...

    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... ...

    As far as historical fiction goes... 2.5 - At times I thought this book was very confusing... There are many good reviews for this book- so take my 2.5 with a grain of salt- I just didn't care for it like some others did.... ...

    HOLY CRAP THIS SOUNDS AMAZING ...

    This was a wonderful read! Good mystery and just enough romance to make it enjoyable. ...

    I took this book with me while cruising on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, but it's probably good that I didn't actually read it until we were home safe and sound on dry land. The Glass Ocean follows Caroline and her husband, Gilbert, as they board the ill-fated Lusitania during ...

    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...

    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. ...

    I ... am .. speechless. No I?m not. I loved this book so much! LOVED it so much I DEVOURED it in one sitting. I want to read Erik Larson?s Dead Wake ... like tomorrow. Such incredible plot depth. It?s sexy, suspenseful, suspicious, scintillating and snazzy! It?s all the s?ss ...

    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...

    Three narrators, three authors and two points in history. With three experienced authors at the helm, I find myself curious how they went about this book. How did they divy up the sections, the characters, and how did they decide to write about this time period? Maybe more research ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    The tremendous trio of authors returns with an incredible story of a bestselling author who, searching for her next book idea, delves into the mystery of her great-grandfather, who died when the Lusitania sank. The story shifts between the present day and two women who were on the doom...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...
