Publisher's Summary

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.

When investigative reporter - and Finn's boss's sister - Gabby Rowley arrives, her unrelenting questions complicate an already volatile situation. Now that she's back, 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?

Slow at first and difficult to follow

I normally enjoy Dani Pettrey’s books, this one was just a bit slower than her other books. And I would frequently get lost when the scene changed. There is also a lot of past reflections and it wasn’t always easy to follow that either. I think I’d enjoy this book more in the written form!
I’m not sure if I will listen to book two when it comes out. But I do know that I’ll be sending this one back for credit!

Awesome Book!!!

What a thrill ride of a start to a new series. Couldn’t stop listening because the action just kept coming. Loved the first installment and I’m looking forward to the next in the series. My only disappointment was that Therese Plummer wasn’t the narrator for this series, like she was in the previous Chesapeake Valor series. Don’t get me wrong, Nina Alvamar did a fine job, but no one brings a story to life like Therese...just my opinion.

Not my favorite by this author.

The story was definitely full of action, but the main character annoyed me. The males also seem unrealistic. The narrator was not very good. Her male voices all sounded the same—like an old man.

Anticipation

Dani Pettrey’s Alaskan Courage series caught my attention like nothing had since Dee Henderson’s O’Malley series. Now I’m hooked, and once again my attention has been grabbed; I was not disappointed when reading Gabby and Finn’s story in The Killing Tide. Non-stop, action and a beautifully spun story of redeeming love. This is when my patience is tested - waiting on the next installment of Coastal Guardians! Beautiful anticipation!

Great story, not so great reader.

Disappointed in the reader’s lack of pauses between “scenes” and not enough variety in vocal differences to tell who was who. A great story as Pettrey always writes that was difficult to listen to.

Another great story.

Loved the new story! Missed Therese Plummer though. Narration wasn't quite as good as previous series. Still, not enough to take away from the tale. Can't wait for the next one.
