Review: The Killing Tide

The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: August 6, 2019

When Gabby Rowley’s investigative reporting puts a drug kingpin behind bars, attempts on her life send her running home. Her brother, Noah is a Coast Guard Investigative Services officer, and is far better able to protect her than the police can. While home is her best chance for protection, is she prepared to face Finn Walker, the man she fell in love with last time she was home but then left behind, rather than lose out on a story?

Finn’s feelings for Gabby never went away. Can he protect her from herself, when she pokes around in his dangerous investigation? Her nose for a story is what sent her home in the first place. As fellow Coasties are killed and evidence points to drug runners, can Finn solve the case with his attention divided between keeping Gabby out of trouble, and the murderers intent on keeping their identities secret?

Gotta say, I did NOT like Gabby Rowley very much. It wasn’t enough that she was foolhardy with her own safety. She had to take her pregnant, newly-widowed friend into danger, too. As if that wasn’t enough, then she comes within seconds of getting her own sister killed by a madman. All for a story. If I were her friends and family, she would be off my Christmas card list! Her change of heart feels a bit “too little, too late” for me.

Dani Pettrey is amazing at keeping the suspense screaming. Every time i thought everyone was safe, someone else stepped into danger, or another bad guy crawled out from under his rock.

Suspense lovers will love this story. It’s a great beginning to the Coastal Guardians series!

Rated PG-13: Quite a bit of murder and mayhem here, and the final scene is pretty terrifying. I don’t recommend this for young readers
