Tide Ever Rising ~ A Book Review & Giveaway

Just recently I reviewed The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack.  
Today I am lucky enough to get to review Tide Ever Rising as well! 


Title: Tide Ever Rising
Author: Mandi Tucker Slack
Publisher: Cedar Fort 
Pages: 208
Publication Date: February 12th 2013

 Kadence Reynold’s favorite pastime is exploring old ghost towns, but when she and her sister, Maysha, stumble across an old journal and cheap pendant hidden in the depths of a crumbling foundation near Eureka, Utah, their world is suddenly turned upside down. Immediately, strange dreams and premonitions begin to haunt “Kadie” as she learns more about the author of the journal, Charlotte Clark. Kadie sets out on a journey to learn more about Charlotte and her family, and she and Maysha travel to Bremerton, Washington, where they discover Charlotte's still living twin sister, Adelaide and her family.  

  Kadie and Maysha, upon arriving in Washington, are immediately immersed in Adelaide and Charlotte’s story. Kadie soon learns that Charlotte disappeared the night of a tragic fire that took the lives of Adelaide’s entire family. With the help of Logan Mathews, Adelaide’s handsome grandson, and Charlotte’s ever disconcerting presence, Kadie delves into the past. Hoping to solve the mystery of Charlotte’s disappearance, Kadie immediately discovers the secrets contained in the journal will toss her and Adelaide’s family into a world filled with mystery, past regrets, and dark unknowns.

My Review: 

When I began reading Tide Ever Rising I didn't really know what to expect.  On the first page I was slightly bored and unsure of where the story was going.  By the second page I found myself leaning closer to the pages, wanting to know what was going to happen.  Around page five I knew I wasn't going to be putting this book down anytime soon. 

Mandi truly has a talent for writing. She brings her characters to life on the page and leaves you unable to put the book down.  I know this to be true after reading not one, but two of her books. 

Kadie is smart, believable and throughout the book, all I wanted was to be there standing beside her during her adventure! Her sister, Maysha is hilarious, and very alive! Tide Ever Rising was read in one sitting during my lunch break at work.  Yes, I read it that fast I loved it so much! 

Thank you, Mandi, for another fantastic book!
