I am a fan of Kat Martin no doubt about it. Her books bring just enough intrigue, mystery and romance to the story for it to be a wonderful easy read, but not get bogged down with intricacies that I have no interest in. I enjoy the action without all the gore and that is what Kat Martin brings to the table.

AGAINST THE TIDE is a perfect example of the blend that she is famous for writing. The Pacific Northwest sports some of the most beautiful areas on earth and that is where this book is set. Her books pick you up and set you down in the middle of God’s country. I know, I’ve been there and her descriptive passages will take you for a visit as well.

Secrets—and safety—melt under a midnight sun…

Liv Chandler is running for her life, and the cops haven’t been able to do a thing to help. But there’s one man who makes her feel safe, no matter what…rugged charter boat captain Rafe Brodie.

To Rafe, Liv is a beautiful mystery, one he can’t ignore. He means to unearth her secrets, and in the process, if luck is on his side, maybe the spark between them will ignite.

But Liv’s past is more dangerous than Rafe could guess, and when his first mate turns up dead, she fears that she’s next. That there’s something else coming she can’t see. That even Rafe and the remote village of Valdez, Alaska can’t protect her forever…

It is a great book and one you can expect to devour in a few hours time.

I also enjoy is getting to know the different members of the Bodie family and in AGAINST THE TIDE, we meet Rafe. And like all Brodie men, he meets his perfect match.

I am giving AGAINST THE TIDE five stars. It is a great book and one you can expect to devour in a few hours time.

About the Reviewer

Donna McBroom-Theriot
Writer. Book Reviewer. Southern Lady. Connoisseur of Chocolate. My Life is like an episode of "I love Lucy!" I'm a writer, book reviewer, and a Southern Lady who loves her Sweet Tea. My blog, My Life. One Story at a Time. is where I've been writing short stories since 2009. As luck would have it, the very first short story I wrote was published within months of my writing it. This quote pretty much sums me up: "Deep in my heart, I know there’s no promise I’ll be free from trouble in this life. In fact, I’m usually either getting out of trouble, currently in trouble, or about to meet trouble around the next corner." Well, you know that old saying, "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions" - that road is usually the one I'm on! And, as much I used to mock (we all grow up eventually) the Cajun dialect, 15 years ago, I found myself marrying the sweetest Cajun boy - complete with the requisite white trawl boots and a trawl boat. I love writing stories about the South and life with our two German Shepherds, and the four kids who meander in and out of our lives as they live their own journeys. Most days you'll find me out on the front porch swing, with the dogs at my feet, a tall glass of sweet iced tea close by, and a good book. It's what life in the South is all about. - See more at:
