The Deadly Shallows (Coastal Guardians, #3) by Dani Pettrey

 

A mass shooting.
A stolen weapon capable of immense destruction. 
A painful secret that threatens to tear two hearts apart.

CGIS Agent Noah Rowley is rocked to the core when he learns of a mass shooting raging on his Coast Guard base. He and his team stop the attack, but not before numerous innocent lives are lost. Furious and grief-stricken, he determines to do whatever is needed to bring the mastermind behind the attack to justice.

Coast Guard flight medic Brooke Kesler evacuates the scene of the shooting in a helicopter carrying the only surviving gunman. Gravely wounded, the man whispers mysterious information to Brooke that immediately paints a target on her back.

As Brooke and Noah race to uncover answers, emotions between them ignite. Noah struggles to protect Brooke at all costs and to conceal the secret that prevents him from becoming what he longs to be--the right man for her.

Everything is at stake as a horrifying truth emerges. . . .

The mass shooting wasn't the end game. It was only the beginning.

My Review


 

This is the third and final book in the Coastal Guardians Series, and although it can be read alone, they are all equally great! We are given some cameo's with past characters, and how this all fits together.

Yes, this is a page turner, and for me a very fast read, as I needed answers. It begins with a mass shooting, and we are looking for answers!

As with everyday life there is more than one story here, and you will quickly be holding your breath, and your heart will be in your throat, will these people you now care about survive, it is questionable!

Along with some great suspense we do have some really sweet romance, and when the final page was turned, I really wanted to stay and continue in their lives!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House and was not required to give a positive review.
