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…

What Against the Tide is about:
A murder occurs in Valdez Alaska and Rafe wants to solve it. Olivia, the local cafe own steps in to help. In a small town, there aren’t many suspects, but there are tourists to consider as well. When a suspect is arrested, Raft and Olivia are sure he is innocent and continue to push even though there is almost no evidence from the murder.
What I loved:
Against the Tide is really well written. I enjoy Kat Martin’s writing style. I empathized with Olivia and wanted her to get her happily ever after. The book jumps right in with the action (both solving the murder and in the bedroom!). The book kept me guessing for a while and I have to say, my guess was wrong most of the time! Its difficult to find a book that keeps me guessing.
What I didn’t love:
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why Olivia felt that she should help find the murderer. I also struggled with why the police were okay with Rafe and Olivia investigating and questions witnesses. However, once I just sort of let that go, Against the Tide was good. I mean, I read paranormal books all the time and have to accept crazy things then too!
