McKenna Dockery has been stuck in limbo since her fiancé died three years ago. Now, when the handsome yet heartbroken Caden arrives at her doorstep, she starts to wonder if there may be hope for her heart after all . . .

But no sooner do they meet than a man is found murdered on McKenna’s property–and Caden is the prime suspect. The two must learn to trust each other, or no one will be safe in the tangled web of conspiracy, greed, and deceit lurking in the tidal marshlands of the Outer Banks.

MY Thoughts

This is a book by a new-to-me author. I found this story to be quite attention grabbing, and filled with unexpected twists and turns.

The setting was great-Outer Banks–a place I’ve never been to, but want to go visit sometime. And I loved the characters. McKenna and Caden. At first they did nothing but antagonize each other, but you can sense the attraction immediately.

And then there’s the ties into WWII stuff…I don’t want to give any spoilers, but all of this was very intriguing.

And the murders. The arsons. McKenna seems to find herself close to being in the middle of everything that is happening. And she is in danger numerous times as she tries to figure out just what is going on.

If you like Christian mystery/suspense, I encourage you to try this one!
