Since I enjoyed Mandi Slack's first book, The Alias, I was thrilled when she asked me to participate in this blog tour. That meant I would be an advanced reader of Tide Ever Rising.
This book was everything I'd expected from Mandi. I gave it 5 of 5 stars. Even though it's being promoted as a paranormal suspense, I would call it an excellent example of a gothic romance. Some thrills and chills with other-worldly involvement complement a sweet romance between Kadie and Logan. I love how Mandi can put you right there with the characters in her descriptions of sights, sounds, and smells. For those of you who love Twilight, you'll recognize some of the same territory. It was fun to re-visit the geography in a totally different type of book. No vampires. No glitter. Plenty of action, suspense, and romance. I confess I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish this fun book. I'm looking forward to reading more by Mandi. You can learn more about her on her website, http://www.mandituckerslack.com/.
