Having read and become immersed into the characters and storyline of the first two books of the Resolution trilogy, I began the third book with anticipation of continuing my friendship with this Resolution Island “family”, and I was completely delighted once again with another wonderful story. In the first book, Back to Resolution, Mrs. Dee uses the main character to create the vivid Australian backdrop for this trilogy as seen through the lens of a camera. The second book, Beyond Resolution, leads the reader to the author’s unfolding of the realities of living both in and out of God’s plan as demonstrated through the circumstances of the characters. In this final book of the trilogy, Rose Dee takes the reader into the world of Anika Deumer and her Islander heritage. It provides a better understanding of the Islander people and their culture. Anika, defined as having olive skin, blond corkscrew curls, and blue eyes, lived with racial slurs and blatant insults beginning in her early childhood. Some would say people clearly labeled her by her unfortunate social/economic position while not seeing the frightened child who grew into a floundering pregnant teenager looking for love and security the same as any seventeen year old girl. This book is Anika’s story of finding her eternal Father, the one who loves unconditionally. It’s also the story of a mother’s love for her child when faced with overwhelming difficulties; it’s the story of suspense and romance in the sometimes dangerous world of the Islands; and it’s the story of learning to trust God’s plan for one’s life. I love the way Rose Dee weaves the different characters (from all three books) in and out of this story. That gives conformity to the trilogy and provides “revisiting” for the reader. I highly recommend this series to all readers who enjoy inspirational fiction that demonstrate authentic living and overcoming genuine struggles in the real world. I won this book from the Book Club Network and voluntarily wrote a review.

This third book in the Resolution series is another great read. This book, though part of a series, can also stand alone. Characters from previous books in the series also make an appearance. Anika has had a rough life. She was rescued from living with her alcoholic mother as a child and went to live with her aunt. She desired to avoid making the same mistakes her mother made, but finds herself pregnant as a teenager and briefly turns to alcohol to escape. The father of her baby has no desire to be a father and take responsibility, so encourages her to have an abortion. Ani chooses to keep the baby and eventually moves to Resolution Island to make a new life for herself and her young son. While there, the paternal grandfather sues for custody of her son. She also meets an American who has travelled to Australia to fulfill the dying wish of his mother (another story in itself!) and has to face long buried attitudes and bitterness, before she can allow herself to love. A murder, an illegal fishing ring, and the disappearance of her son add to the many twists to this beautiful story of love and forgiveness. I highly recommend this book. It does have some mature themes that would make this inappropriate for a younger audience. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review which I have given.

After reading the first two of Rose Dee's Resolution series books, I was excited to read this one also.A New Resolution is no disappointment.  It is able to be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone but I was glad I was able to enjoy it in series form. The characters and scenery continue to make Australia a place I want to visit.The theme of fidelity and love in a relationship continues. Good parenting skills along with love and stability are encouraged. And of course a strong relationship with God is encouraged. I can not wait to continue to follow this author and her books.I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

A New Resolution By: Rose Dee I have loved this series of books by Rose Dee. Their are three of them. I feel you could read them as a stand alone and still follow a great story. But you are going to want to read them all they are so good. I really liked the characters they are well written. Anika was my favorite. Anika lived through a lot. First being left by parents then being adopted. Anika leaves her home to build a new life for her and her son. But her son's father has followed her to try to take her son. Now Ani has to fight to keep her son. if there is one thing she can't stand is people with money and power. Nate has his own things to deal with. The death of his mother brings a strange request for him to do in order to get his inheritance. Which brings him also to Resolution. Anika and Nate meet and there is some chemistry there, but he stands for everything she doesn't like. Will these two come together? This book was great a romance, there was adventure, there was also mystery. Who murdered someone? I wish there was a book to follow. 5 star book.

Apparently A New Resolution is the third book in a series but can easily be read as a stand alone. Rose Dee brings a fun book with love and romance, mystery and mayhem, and social and environmental issues. Her characters are believable, the reader can easily like (or dislike the villains!) them. The descriptions of the idyllic tropical island life entices this reader to want to visit down under. A nice story and a good read.I received this book for free from BookClubNetwork and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I have also posted this review on DeeperShopping, Amazon, and Goodreads.

A New Resolution by Rose Dee A New Resolution is set on the Australian island of Resolution. The main character Anika Deumer moved to the island to have a new beginning of sorts determined not to make the same mistakes as her mother. She is unweaving in her determination to provide a good life for her seven year old son. As a Marine Biologist she is helping research the declining population of dugong‘s, that are in danger of extinction. When she meets yachter Nate Hollingsworth from Texas she is determined to stay away, judging him to be a rich playboy type. They fight an unexpected attraction to one another as they confront environmental issues like illegal fishing, drugs, a custody crisis and murder. I found the author Rose Dee handled the tough topic of Christian values in a outstanding dignified way as she addressed unwedded sexual relations and attraction before and after becoming a Christian. I give A New Resolution 5 stars. It was a great read, easy to follow, clean romance, and had a good Christian base. The characters were well developed. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a Christian romance with mystery . It is part of a series but it can be read alone. I want to thank the author Rose Dee and Even Before Publishing for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to readers like me. I would also like to thank The Book Club Network Inc. for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

I enjoyed this book.  It wasn't the regular romance novel, rather along with the romance, it had issues that pertained to the environmental area such as over fishing, illegal fishing, marijuana growing, and racial and cultural inequalities.  The author had me right in the area and I've never been there.  I liked that the 2 main characters had both learned about God in their adult lives.  They had tasted the life of so called sexual freedom and discovered that it wasn't all it was cracked up to be.  This intensified their emotional stress when the sexual tension between them was high.  I liked the point where the author has Nate, who was brought up with a Christian influence, realize as he read his mother's bible that he really didn't know what a relationship with God was really like or that it was a choice.  A definite great read with mystery, murder, emotional insecurities, and romance.
