Book Review: The Killing Tide

From The Back:

A Corpse That Only Leads to Secrets.
An Old Flame with Danger Written all over Her.
Things Are about to Get Very Complicated.
When one Coast Guard officer is found dead and another goes missing, Coast Guard Investigative Service special agent Finn Walker faces his most dangerous crime yet. His only clues are what little evidence remains aboard the dead officer's boat, and the direction the clues point to will test Finn and the Guard to their limits.

The already volatile situation is complicated even further by the arrival of Gabby Rowley--Finn's boss's sister and an investigative reporter with unrelenting questions about the crime. Now that she's returned, the tug on Finn's heart is strong, but with the risks she's taking for her next big story, he fears she might not live through it.

Thrown together by the heinous crime, Finn and Gabby can't ignore the sparks or judgments flying between them. But will they be able to see past their preconceptions long enough to track down an elusive killer, or will they become his next mark?
My Reflections:
I am a huge Dani Pettrey fan, so it's no surprise that this first book in the "Coastal Guardians" series is a hit with me. Who doesn't love romantic suspense with bubbling over the top suspense, strong heroes melded together with clean faith approved storylines? 
The cast is expansive, so that was a little for me to overcome, I am however excited to see where they emerge in future editions. The tidal waves of action would not let up, so be prepared to read without distraction, otherwise, you may find yourself getting annoyed with your real life!
Gabby Rowley was a character that you loved to hate, strong-willed and in a heap of danger. She never expected that her job as an investigative reporter could turn deadly. Her brother Noah, a special agent with the Coast Guard Investigative Service jumps in to help, with his team of agents, but is it too little too late? 
Readers will become well acquainted with all the members of the CGIS team. I especially loved Finn, his dedication and strong ethics made him my favourite character! I also enjoyed how all the special agents interacted, it was a close bond, I suppose you would have to trust and like the people who have your back! 
This was a quick read, I'm glad it is a series of I might have been disappointed with having come to the last pages. One thing you can expect from this authour is that you will be immersed within the pages of any of her novels from page one to done!
