The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gabby Rowley is a magnet for trouble. Her passion for pursuing a good story has gotten her into deep water and she is now forced to hide out in a small coastal town. But going back means seeing Finn, the handsome Coast Guard investigator who she had once broken his heart.
As Finn works to keep Gabby safe and investigate several murders, a sinister plot threatens both their lives and the passion between them.
I enjoy the authors fast paced writing style and her complicated plots. Even getting to know the other characters who will no doubt have their own story in the series. I enjoyed the coastal setting and a glimpse into the life of those who serve in the Coast Guard. The mystery was well done.
However, the romance between Gabby and Finn seemed to have taken place more in the past and not so much in the present. Maybe the emotional connection between reader and characters was lost in all the action. While I like my romances clean, I didn’t see a noticeable character change in Gabby or Finn that resolved their conflict.
Overall, I likes the setting and the mystery. So, if you like more a good mystery, action pact story this will definitely work for you. But if you are looking for a strong emotional roller-coaster ride – maybe not.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
