#BookReview of The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey #NetGalley #TheKillingTide #ChristianRomanticSuspense
Upfront information: I was provided with an advanced reader’s copy of The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey courtesy of Bethany House Publishers via Net Galley. The book will be available for purchase on August 6, 2019. As I understand it, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Coast Guard Foundation.
Parental note: As a Christian fiction book, one would expect it to be clean. It is except there is mild to moderate violence – most of which is played off-stage.
Genre and my rating: Christian Romantic Suspense – 5 stars
Brief synopsis: Noah Rowley heads up a Coast Guard Investigative Service (CGIS) team in a small coastal town. When a pregnant woman is concerned for her Coast Guard husband’s safety, his team gets the call. What they discover sets them on a journey that no one expected.
My perspective as a reader: There were plenty of plot twists and turns plus I was invested in the ongoing investigation along with the team. This is the first book by Ms. Pettrey that I’ve read. If this is any indication of the type of stories she writes, then she has found a new fan.
My perspective as an author: Each character had their own personality and quirks. While some of them seemed vaguely reminiscent of those seen on television, they were different enough not to be cliché. While the Christian-based faith is evident in some of the characters, it isn’t over the top. In my opinion when an author creates fictional characters that aren’t paper cut-outs but seen as real people, that’s a mark of a true story-teller.
I do enjoy reading new-to-me authors and this felt like the appropriate one to try out of Ms. Dani Pettrey's work. That's because my favorite types of books have something to do with military members, medicine, mystery, and law enforcement. This book has it all.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my review of The Killing Tide. If you purchased a copy, thank you for supporting Ms. Pettrey in her contribution to the Coast Guard Foundation. If you didn't know, August 4th is when the US Coast Guard celebrates their "birthday".
