About the Book
The Killing Tide
Inspirational Romantic Suspense
When one Coast Guard officer is found dead and another goes missing, Coast Guard Investigative Service special agent Finn Walker faces his most dangerous crime yet. His only clues are what little evidence remains aboard the dead officer’s boat, and the direction the clues point to will test Finn and the Guard to their limits.
When investigative reporter–and Finn’s boss’s sister–Gabby Rowley arrives, her unrelenting questions complicate an already volatile situation. Now that she’s back, the tug on Finn’s heart is strong, but with the risks she’s taking for her next big story, he fears she might not live through it.
Thrown together by the heinous crime, Finn and Gabby can’t ignore the sparks or judgments flying between them. But will they be able to see past their preconceptions long enough to track down an elusive killer, or will they become his next mark?
Dani Pettrey has become a must-read author for me as her books are the perfect mix of romance and suspense! "The Killing Tide" is a perfect start to her brand-new series and I was fortunate enough to get an early copy of book 2 in the series ("The Crushing Depths"), so I could just continue right along reading about this incredible team. This Coast Guard Investigative Service team is one that I would for sure want around if I found myself needing their services as they are committed to their jobs and also to each other. Finn is struggling with what limited clues he has in this most recent crime, and he is not thrilled with the return of Gabby. Well, his heart is betraying him as he really is happy to see her, yet at the same time he is fearful she will be killed, and he doesn't believe his heart will live through that. This book is one that you will want to keep reading as soon as you start as you will be hooked from the start. I highly recommend this book, and do not stop with that, go get book 2 as soon as it is out on June 30th!

The Killing Tide
is the first book in my Coastal Guardian series. My husband was Navy, so why am I writing about the Coast Guard? Because I think their mission to keep our waters and our country safe should be highlighted more. Before I started writing The Killing Tide
, I’ll admit I knew little about the Coast Guard. I had a friend in high school who joined the Guard right after graduation, but that’s about the depth of my experience with them. Then, my husband and I watched a movie called The Finest Hour
If you haven’t seen it, I highly urge you to. It’s the true story of one of the most dangerous and daring rescue attempts in Coast Guard history. Boatswain’s Mate First Class Bernie Webber takes a small team to rescue the crew of the Pendleton
T2 oil tanker, which split in half off the coast of Cape Cod during a brutal nor’easter in 1952. I won’t ruin the ending for you, but let’s just say it’s a wonderful testament to courage in adversity. After watching it, I knew I had to write a series about the Coast Guard. I began researching and came across the Coast Guard Investigative Service and my interest was highly peaked. After talking with Coast Guardsmen, both newly in the service and those long retired, I began to see the story weaving together like a movie in my mind. I hope you enjoy reading the CGIS Wilmington teams’ adventures, cases and…of course, romances.
