A Killing Tide

Kindle Romance

Author - P.J. Alderman
Price   - $0.99

Kaz Jorgensen is no stranger to anxiety, but this is different. A companion is dead, a pyromaniac has fired the Anna Marie, and her twin brother has disappeared, accused of arson and murder.

The fire chief, Michael Chapman, is dealing with personal loss. After transferring to town, he also has to deal with a fishing community that treats him as an outsider. After reports circulate raising questions about his prior job, he can't allow himself to become enmeshed with the sister of a suspect.

Central to any exciting romantic mystery is good characterization. Alderman endows the main characters with natural, human, flaws, and allows them to wrestle with instinctive feelings amid the investigation. They fear what they will eventually uncover, and their fear is transferred to readers. The characters become very real as you read. The support characters also feel genuine. All in all, a good read.
