When both old and new secrets are uncovered at a burial site, the timetable of a madman moves up. Old secrets were buried in the beautiful mountain meadow.
It was Jamie Taylor and her dog's job to uncover them. Trouble was they dug up some new secrets as well. While some families would find closure, others would soon find their lives ripped apart.
Assistant Special Agent in Charge Nicholas Grant becomes embroiled in the case while coming to terms with his own demons.
A madman watches from the distance while officials expose his clandestine playground - his private playground - much sooner than he planned. But with any luck, not soon enough.

Have iPod - will listen!!!
This book ticked all of my boxes including the HEA. The characters are easy to relate to and the story moves at a reasonable pace, keeping the reader guessing.
I am a fan of books with short chapters as it encourages the author to keep the story moving and this one does not disappoint. The characters are well-developed, with each having some of their back-story explained, helping the reader to relate more fully to them. As this is the first in the Aspen Thriller series, I am hoping that some of these characters will appear in future novels as it will be interesting to see how their lives progress. Because I love dogs, I’m always glad to find an author who includes them in their stories. The three who form an integral part of this story, do not disappoint! I do have one question for the author – how does the plane crash fit in? It seems to have no relevance to this story. As an optimist, I hope there will be a link in a future book; however, this loose end needs to be tied.
I listened to the audio version of this book narrated by Suzan Lynn Lorraine. It was refreshing to hear a book narrated (read without using different ‘voices’) rather than performed, however, the lack of character definition does rate a lower score from me.
If you are looking for a mystery / thriller for a lazy Sunday afternoon, this book is for you.

Red Tide kept me guessing until the very end. This was a wonderful story with true characters intrigue and real-life emotions. The first book by Peg Brantley I read was The Sacrifice. Red Tide is just as riveting. My only and I do mean only complaint about this book is that the ending is too abrupt. I like the circumstances revealed in the ending but so much more could have been said and revealed about how that ending came about. In my humble opinion too much was left unsaid between the end of the conflict and the final resolution. Other than that it's an amazing book that I will definitely recommend and read again.
