Seaside Secrets was a truly action-packed story full of tense situations and uncertainty. The author did a great job of creating a scenario where it was impossible for the main characters, Angela and Dan, to know who they could trust.
This book is the second book in the Pacific Coast Private Eyes series. It was fun to see the main character from book one show up in book two, however, this book stands alone fine and the author does a good job of filling in a few details for anyone who did not read Dangerous Tidings.
Seaside Secrets dealt with the issue of PTSD and I thought that it was handled well. It was interesting to see how Angela struggled with everything that was happening in the book while also dealing with PTSD. It even impacted the potential relationship between Angela and Dan.
I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more in this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
IN THE LINE OF FIRE
Navy chaplain Angela Gallagher wants to put the past behind her, but she’s still haunted by the wartime death of her assistant. So when his brother claims he’s in danger and pleads for her to use her family’s private detective company’s resources to help him stay alive, she can’t turn him down. But someone will stop at nothing—even murder—to keep her from revealing their secrets. She’ll have to depend on a military colleague to keep her head above water. Dr. Dan Blackwell was in the field with her when her assistant died, and he’s determined to keep her safe. Can they sift through the web of lies to find the truth without losing their lives?
