Book Blurb: A wounded veteran and the police chief's daughter must work together to bring a killer to justice.

Caden Wallis lost friends, his girlfriend, and even his leg to the ravages of war. He arrives on the Outer Banks broken and still reeling, struggling to make peace with his new life. McKenna Dockery has been stuck in limbo since her fiancé died three years ago. Now, when the handsome yet heartbroken Caden arrives at her doorstep, she starts to wonder if there may be hope for her heart after all . . . But no sooner do they meet than a man is found murdered on McKenna's property and Caden is the prime suspect. The two must learn to trust each other, or no one will be safe in the tangled web of conspiracy, greed, and deceit lurking in the tidal marshlands of the Outer Banks.

My Review: I went into this book expecting more mystery and less romance. The book is more of a romance with a bit of a mystery so that wasn’t really a great fit for me. Although I’m not a big romance fan I still enjoyed most of the book. The author did a great job developing the story line and the book was well written. I felt like the author did a really good job dealing with the topic of a wounded vet and PTSD. What was missing, besides a good mystery, was some of the character development. There was also a little bit of instant love happening and while in some books I find that works, in this one it didn’t. If you’re looking for a romance with a bit of suspense then this one might be a good fit.
