Publisher's Summary

Beth and Donovan have come a long way from Hurricane Sabrina and the San Francisco earthquake. Now they are approaching their wedding day and anxiously waiting to promise each other a lifetime of love. The journey down the aisle isn’t smooth, though, as they receive threats from the followers of the notorious criminal, Jackson Storm. They think they’ll be safe in Hawaii, but distance can’t stop these killers. Not even a tsunami can. 

This monstrous wave is the most devastating disaster Beth has ever faced. It leaves her beaten, frightened. Is she a widow on her honeymoon? As she struggles to hold herself together and find Donovan, she’s kidnapped by Jackson's men. 

Fearing her dead, Donovan searches the rubble and shelters with no luck. The thought of her being swept out to sea is almost too much for him to bear, but the reality is much worse. She’s being used as bait to get him to fall into a deadly trap. If they live through this disaster, they may never be the same again.

Eh I tried to like it but struggled

While I haven't listened to any of the other books in this series, I decided to listen since it could be read as a stand-alone novel. I'm fond of the disaster and apocalypse type stories and can enjoy a good romance from time to time. HOWEVER blending the lines between genres can be hit or miss. I think this was more miss that hit unfortunately.

The narrator, Bill Nevitt, has a pleasant voice but when I started, and am reminded it's supposed to be a disaster type storyline, it's hard to reconcile that against how chipper and pleasant Bill's voice is. It's not convincing to me as a serious story narration. He reminds me of the voice over actor for the young children's show on Disney Jr called Puppy Dog Pals. I feel like the story could use a bit more grit. His adaptation of women's voices and cadences was hard for me to get past as well. That said, it wasn't bothersome enough to forgo the listen.

The story itself....Hmmmm. The plot was so over the top my ability to suspend disbelief was totally thwarted. I realize this falls in the Romance category but the smattering of love scenes seemed unnecessary and tedious within the context of disaster book. Too much flowery description at times in parts of the story that were inappropriate at that moment in time for my liking. Go grit, or go rom-com but smashing the two together with equal parts was just hard for me and came off cheesy at times.

The part of the story that was most compelling for me was the actual tsunami and the aftermath of the tsunami for both Donovan and Beth. I feel like the author did a good job in researching how a tsunami behaves, what a body might go through during such an event, and what a disaster area might look like after the fact.

The beginning was quick and you got to the wedding fast, but I think it was good to be that brief. The setup doesn't need to drag out too long. The events in Hawaii were supposed to be the substance of the story and it was.

The fact that Donovan and Beth have been through all these disasters and are going undercover etc just seems too far fetched for me though. I'm doubtful I'll return for any prequels or sequels.

Continuing Romance and More Diaster

This is a continuation of the same two characters from books 1 and 2. Disaster stalks them. Wow, what a honeymoon. I enjoy watching the relationship change and grow as we move from novel to novel. Great characters and an exciting read. Highly recommend.

Wow!

What a honeymoon. Just when the happy couple thinks they are safe from the bad guys stalking them, mother nature rears her ugly head. A walk on the beach becomes a nightmare. Will they find their way back to each other? Were the bad guys lost in the wave?

The author has written an amazing story. She's made it seem like the reader is in the middle of the action. The Characters are real including those along the ride with the couple. Some rescued, some lost. The reader feels the anxiety waiting to meet up with loved ones or worse.

Another winner from this series. I can't wait for the next listen,

Exciting!

action-adventure, romantic, suspense, mystery, thriller, strong-women

Yes, each book is an installment, but that's a good thing because it would be too overwhelming to have all that in one book. And that's even without the natural disasters along the way! This time they get married and go to Hawaii for a surfing honeymoon but things get too exciting when they are followed by the criminals and nearly wiped out by the tsunami. I loved it! It's a real adrenaline rush.
Bill Nevitt really knows how to ramp up the tension with his narration!

Non Stop action


This series never fails to provide nonstop hair raising action! Beth and Donavan find themselves deep in the middle of yet another natural disaster. The love they have for each other and their fellow victims is awe inspiring. One would think the subject of these two facing hurricanes, earthquakes and now tsunamis would get a bit tiresome, but Chrys Fey’s well written and engaging stories keep me coming back for more!
I listened to the audio version and Bill Nevitt manages the nearly impossible character base straight! It’s a Herculean job and he does it well!
I received a free copy of this book and willingly gave an honest review.

I love this series!

My second read/listen from author Chrys Fey. The characters introduced in Hurricane Crimes (Disaster Crimes #1) are back in this third in series.I was given an Audible copy of Tsunami Crimes & am voluntarily reviewing it. Obviously I’ve missed something in not reading book 2 in the series. Well-written romantic suspense, captivating & intriguing with well-developed characters in this longer work. I’ll be reading more in this series. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

One wild ride!

This is the first book in the series I’ve read/listened to. I instantly fell in love with the charachters so it was a struggle between stopping to go back and get the first few books or keep on with this one. Ultimately I was already hooked with Tsunami Crimes so I kept on. I’m so glad I did. It has everything going on crime, natural disaster and a romance thrown in there. It’s non stop from the very beginning. The combination of solid writing and excellent narration made me feel every emotion Beth and Donovan felt. The heartbreak, the love all of it. My heart was racing through most of the book so I took every second I could find to listen to it. Definitely recommend and I will definitely go back to the beginning of the series as well.

Quite the setting for romance! A good book!

This is a great combination of a disaster novel, a crime thriller and romance thrown in for good measure. It covers a lot of genres. The author did a good job of interestingly combining all of them to make an entertaining series, of which this is the latest book. It was made all the better by the narration. I feel that the narrator made it all the more enjoyable by his telling out the story. Well worth the listen!

Exciting Episode

Having listened to the two earlier books I was excited to download this one ready for more in this exciting series. I have to say that this is my favorite installment of this series, so far. This was an exciting rollercoaster and if you have followed the earlier books you know that our heroes have had a lot to contend with already but in this episode, I did wonder, more than usual, if they will come out of this one.

Beth really came into her own more so than in earlier parts of this series showing us just how strong, yet vulnerable and sexy she is going so far as to be the one saving lives, even if she did need someone to save her also. She stayed strong no matter what. I really like both Beth and Donovan who seemed to be more mature in this installment.

This is definitely an emotional rollercoaster taking in highs and lows, full of action, excitement, drama, sadness, love, and loss - there is also a wedding which was lovely and brought a tear (a happy one) to my eye.

The narration by the talented Bill Nevitt really brought this exciting story to life, he has made these characters his own and endows them with such depth. I have no hesitation in recommending this series, but I feel that you do have to listen to or read these books in order to fully enjoy this series of crime thrillers full of romantic suspense.

I was given a copy of this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Beth & Donovan face another Disaster

Tsunami Crimes by Chrys Fey is the third book in the Disaster Crimes series featuring Beth and Donovan. They are on their honeymoon in Hawaii and Mother-Nature has another disaster yet again for them to face. I love how the author weaves crimes into the stories of disaster. The imagery in this book is so realistic, and the story is well paced with the wedding and honeymoon added in. Bill Nevitt brings Donovan and Beth to life with his distinguishable voices. I like how each book is a standalone listen and builds more depth to the characters.

An enjoyable read

Another adventure for Beth and Donovan - but this one is on their honeymoon! One of my worst fears is being caught in a Tsunami so I found the story quite scary but the intrepid pair come out on top. An enjoyable read apart from their more intimate moments which I skipped over.

Another enjoyable romp

This is my second date with Donovan and Beth, having previously listened to book 2, Seismic Crimes. Much as I enjoy hearing about their escapades, I don't want to be friends with this couple. Everywhere they go some sort of natural disaster occurs! This was another fast paced adventure with a wedding and honeymoon thrown in. I thought the feelings expressed by both characters on their impending nuptials were very sweet; it made me try to cast my mind back to my pre-wedding emotions and hope that I'd felt the same meeting of souls, bodies and minds. Look, I'm not going to tell you that this is Shakespeare, but as a break from my usual fare of murder, mayhem, blood, guts and gore, it's a treat. The narration, by the brilliant Bill Nevitt, lifts the story to a higher level and I'm always impressed and amazed by how he manages to make Beth sound so feminine without recourse to any falsetto. All in all a super story and nearly 8 hours of pure escapism that will lift your spirits. Well worth a listen.
