The Deadly Shallows by Dani Pettrey

About the Book

CGIS Agent Noah Rowley is on the front of a mass shooting raging on his Coast Guard base. He and his team stop the attack, but not before numerous people were killed. He is determined to do whatever is needed to bring this to justice.

Coast Guard flight medic Brooke Kesler evacuates the scene of the shooting in a helicopter carrying the only surviving gunman. The gunman whispers information to Brooke that paints a target on her.

As Brooke and Noah race to uncover answers, emotions between them ignite. Noah struggles to protect Brooke at all costs and to conceal the secret that prevents him from becoming what he longs to be–the right man for her.

My Thoughts

This book took me on a suspenseful ride from start to finish!  The first chapter has several dead bodies and the action to solve the murders continues until the very last chapter.  There were so many twists and turns I could not predict the final outcome.  I really liked reading about Noah and Brooke; they were able to progress their relationship despite all the fast-paced action.  The secondary story is just as exciting and I’m amazed at how the author manages to develop her characters even with so much mystery going on in the story.  This novel stands well on its own but it is fun to learn more about the team in previous novels.  I really liked the suspense and action in this novel and I highly recommend it to those who want a page turner!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
