When investigative reporter Gabby Rowley is almost killed after work one day, her boss encourages her to hide away at her brother’s place. However, this puts her in close proximity to Coast Guard Investigative Service special agent Finn Walker, a man that she once loved. Finn is annoyed that Gabby keeps putting her investigative nose into his business. But as family and friends start going missing, she and Finn must race against the clock to solve the darkness lurking along the coast before it is too late.
This book opens with gunshots and action and it continues until the very end! There is heart pounding danger and suspense that keeps you as a reader on your toes. I liked the romance sprinkled throughout the story, especially since the characters have a past that make their interactions more interesting. I was not a big fan of Gabby because I sometimes felt like she went too far for a story. Also, I think I was introduced to too many characters too quickly and I had a hard time keeping them all straight at first. The villain was the perfectly creepy type that you love to hate, and overall, this story was a great read! I look forward to more in the series!
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley/Bethany House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
