There's an ever growing stack of books on my bedside table (okay, so some of them are actually on my Nook and therefore not technically stacked, but you know what I mean). Whenever I can squeeze an extra moment out of my day, I escape into one of those books. When I got Tide Ever Rising, it took immediate priority on my list!... And, I was not disappointed. In fact, it was so good I don't even feel bad about the day I checked out of my normal busy life to read it!
About the book:
Kadie Reynolds loves to explore old ghost towns. So when she and her sister, Maysha, visit Eureka, Utah, it's just another ordinary trip--until they stumble across an ancient journal and a beautiful pendant hidden in the depths of a crumbling house. Now strange dreams and premonitions are haunting Kadie as she learns more about the keeper of the journal, Charlotte Clark. With her curiosity and good humor intact, Kadie sets out on a journey to find Charlotte's still-living twin sister, Adelaide. Little does anyone know, the journal contains secrets that will plunge Kadie, Maysha, and Adelaide into a world filled with past regrets, and dark unknowns.
If you are looking for a fun, adventurous, clean, romantic suspense, Tide Ever Rising is a great pick. But beware, once you start, you won't be able to put it down until you've turned the last page.
About the Author:
Mandi Tucker Slack grew up in Orangeville, UT, where her father worked as a coal miner for eighteen years. In 1987 the coal mines shut down for a time and her father joined the U.S. Army. They were stationed in Hanau, Germany, and she had the opportunity to explore Europe. Mandi’s family returned to Utah in 1992, and they settled in Orangeville once again, where she attended and completed High School. She then attended the College of Eastern Utah, where she studied Geology. Eventually Mandi changed her major and moved on to Utah State University while she completed a degree in Special Education. She then married her best friend, Charles Slack. They have three children, with one on the way, 6 chickens, and a lizard (sometimes several lizards).Their family loves to spend time together. They enjoy 4-wheeling, camping, and especially rock hounding. Her house is littered with rocks and fossils. As a child Mandi spent many weekends with her parents and sister exploring abandoned mining towns and searching for relics among the brick ruins. Her adventures with her family are often the inspiration for her stories.
