Newspaper reporter, Cali Stevens, boldly walks into Sheriff Nick Justice’s office, with one goal in mind: To find her best friend who disappeared while vacationing. When the no-nonsense sheriff refuses to give her details of the investigation, Cali takes matters into her own hands and starts her own investigation. She never intends to fall for the sheriff…or into the clutches of the Coral Isle’s first serial kidnapper.
Coral Isle’s recent abductions give Nick Justice enough to worry about without adding any complications into the mix, and his attraction to Cali Stevens is definitely a complication. When Nick encourages Cali to leave the island, she refuses. Now he must manage to find the missing women while keeping Cali and the rest of the women on Coral Isle safe.
This is a very entertaining inspirational romantic suspense! Very enjoyable!
Cali is a gal who wants to be in control of her life and what happens around her. She seriously needs to learn the lesson that we cannot always control circumstances and certainly cannot control actions of others!
Sheriff Nick Justice is handsome, kind, dependable and firm. Unfortunately he realizes he is going to have a hard time keeping the determined Cali from butting into the investigation! She keeps demanding that he find her friend even though he assures her that he and his men are doing everything possible.
The interaction between Cali and Nick starts as antagonism and annoyance. As Cali makes inquiries on her own, she senses bad vibes with several local men although she has no clue as to who the kidnapper might be. When someone breaks into Cali’s motel room, Nick becomes the protector and Cali begins to feel calm and protected with him and begins to be willing to trust.
Ms. Davy has created a good mystery by adding enough red herrings to keep the reader guessing! The rising personal awareness between Nick and Cali enhances the tension of the story! For added excitement, in addition to trying to stay one step ahead of the kidnapper, Nick and Cali get to face the dangers of a hurricane! Having been through a couple of hurricanes I think the descriptions are pretty accurate. I just don’t think people would be out in the crashing storm as much as they seemed to be in the story. But that didn’t detract from my enjoying the book.
I like how Ms. Davy focuses on one fundamental lesson rather than diverging into several. Throughout Cali’s efforts and struggles Nick has to gently but consistently remind her that God is the one in control of our lives and she has to learn to trust Him in all things. It is done as a natural extension of Nick’s character and not at all preachy. This is a good romantic suspense that I think anyone would enjoy as a very satisfying read!
