THE REBEL (3) by Rhonda Nelson: Major Finn O’Conner, on vacation before shipping off for his third tour of duty, plans to relax for a few days on Tybee Island, Ga., where he vacationed as a kid. He runs into Sunny Ledbetter, the daughter of the inn’s owners. As a teenager, Finn had slept with Sunny and then skipped town. Will Sunny let him in into her heart again? The Rebel features one of the oddest opening scenes in recent memory. This unfortunately sets the tone for the novel, which never really gets off the ground as the characters struggle to rekindle their old flame.
