Review: Tide Will Tell by Lesley Ann McDaniel


22360689 Although listed as the second in a book series, with each book written by different authors, Tide Will Tell stands alone as its own novel.

This was one fun to read suspense! The heroine, Kate, has gotten herself into quite the predicament with various decisions she has made in her life. Now, she believes she has found the protection she needs from those who are after her. Her marriage to a very wealthy man seems like the solution to her problems.

Josh finds himself in a sticky situation as well…attracted to someone else’s fiancée! He questions whether Kate is really in love with the older and richer man, or if there is more to her desire to marry Chase than meets the eye. When it looks like Kate may be in danger, will Josh be able to protect Kate without knowing who is really after her?

I enjoyed how the author had many possibilities out there for who might be trying to harm Kate. Sometimes it was difficult watching Kate and worrying that she wasn’t always making the best decisions, but that added to the tension! The developing feelings between Kate and Josh were enjoyable to read about. The author did a great job of showing how Kate put her trust in herself and eventually in her fiancé for the protection she needed, but she hadn’t been willing to trust God. I really enjoyed when Kate became willing to hand her situation over to God and look to Him for deliverance. This was a very enjoyable and well-written contemporary, romantic suspense. (4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.



LESLEY ANN MCDANIEL is a lifelong lover of words, animals, and musical theatre.

While earning a degree in acting at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, she fell in love with theatrical costuming, and pursued that as a career while nurturing her passion for writing on the side. Through God’s guidance, she has shifted her focus to honing her skills as a writer of romance and young adult fiction.

Between working as a homeschooling mom and as a professional theatre costumer, Lesley has completed several novels. She would have done more by now if she didn’t also occasionally stop to clean the house and fold the laundry. Fortunately she loves to cook, so no one in her family has starved yet.

She is a member of the Northwest Christian Writers Association, American Christian Fiction Writers, and a wonderful critique group. A native Montanan and a Big Sky girl at heart, Lesley now resides in the Seattle area with her husband, two daughters, three cats and a big loud dog. In her spare time (ha!) she chips away at her goal of reading every book ever written.
