Devynne Lang was a former Hollywood star who, after being stalked and
changing her identity, found refuge on the San Juan Islands. When her
husband, Kent, (a policeman) is shot, she vows to keep her daughter safe
and pretty much leads a secluded life; keeping folks at a distance.
Then strange things begin to happen that lead her to believe her stalker
has found her. What should she do? She feels like she put her husband
at risk and she doesn't want to do that to Carcen. Should she tell him?
Carcen Lang is the sheriff and he would do anything to protect his
beautiful sister-in-law and her daughter. When he finds out she's in
danger he promises to stick close and find out who's responsible. As
buried feelings begin to rise between Carcen and Devynne so does the
danger. Will they figure out who the stalker is before it's too late?
This was an excellent romantic suspense. The story keeps you totally
engaged from beginning to end. The author does a great job of skillfully
weaving together all the things I really like in a story; mystery,
suspense, romance and splashes of humor. Not to mention several
hold-your-breath moments. The characters were all very well drawn and
fully fleshed out. I loved the tentative relationship between Devynne
and Carcen and Devynne's little girl was delightful. But what I
thoroughly appreciated was how the author masterfully kept you from
knowing, without a doubt, who the stalker was. I thought I had it
figured out a couple times but then evidence would point to someone
else. The spiritual thread running through the story was naturally part
of the characters lives and realistic. The author used John 15:12-13
"This is my command: Love one another the way I have loved you. This is
the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends." I
think that verse fit the story very well. I listened to the Audible
version of this story and Johanna Parker did a fantastic job of
narrating. She really brought the story to life and made it an awesome
listening experience. If you're busy and on the go (or even if you're
not) I totally recommend the Audible version of The Unrelenting Tide.
Get it, grab your ear-buds and see if you know who the stalker is.

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
