MINI REVIEW: ‘Tide Ever Rising’ was even a bigger surprise than the author’s previous book ‘The Alias’ and what I liked about it the most is its pace. The author did a bang up job in plotting this story out, and that alone gave this reader some suspenseful and entertaining few hours on an otherwise boring and lonely evening.
This is a combination of mystery, suspense, thriller and a paranormal romance and the story is definitely plot driven with characters that were strong, interesting and way too entertaining. I hope you decide to pick it up. Worth reading and highly recommended.
