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.

Oooooh, I liked A Vast and Gracious Tide very, very much. 60% romance and 40% mystery, I easily read it in … about a day and a half. Ha!

I wonder if Lisa Carter has seen The Christmas Card (Hallmark movie). 🙂 I may have seen it a time or six and drew a fair few parallels between the two, in plot and character development. (And that’s a very good thing! I watch the movie at least once every six months. Hiiiiii, Cody.)

Carter writes well and truly engages the reader throughout this book. Reminiscent of Sarah Sundin and Tracie Peterson, I definitely recommend this book for fans of either author. I particularly enjoyed the WWII history; I knew nothing about the U-boat threat off the Atlantic during that time!

A Vast and Gracious Tide is a great combination of history, romance, action, and mystery. It certainly holds a spot on my “to reread” pile! Carter is a new-to-me author, and I am excited to check out her other books. Can’t believe I’m not familiar with them!

I received a free copy of the book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
