A new read tonight August 23, 2022

Last night’s read is done. It must have been pretty good because I stuck with it until the very last page. Didn’t get a whole lot of sleep. There was a time when I could read the night away and still function in the morning. Those days are long gone. I guess I won’t be doing that again tonight.

I could be tempted though. This new story is just getting good.

The Crushing Depths (Coastal Guardians Book #2) 

When an accident claims the life of an oil-rig worker on the first drilling platform off the North Carolina coast, Coast Guard investigators Rissi Dawson and Mason Rogers are sent to take the case. Tensions surrounding the oil rig are high and the death has everyone on edge. Environmental activists are threatening to do whatever it takes to stop the structure from being completed, while rumors are being whispered about ancient curses surrounding this part of the ocean.

Mounting evidence shows the death may not have been an accident at all. Was he killed by one of the activists or, perhaps more frighteningly, a member of his own crew? Rissi and Mason have to sort through not only a plethora of suspects, but also their own past and attraction to each other.

Just as the case seems like it’ll break open, worse news arrives. A tropical storm has turned their way and soon they’re cut off from any rescue–and right where the killer wants them. It’s a race to discover his identity before he eliminates the threat they pose.


It seems I read and enjoyed book 1 in this series a year ago.

The Killing Tide (Coastal Guardians Book #1)

When one Coast Guard officer is found dead and another goes missing, Coast Guard Investigative Service special agent Finn Walker faces his most dangerous crime yet. His only clues are what little evidence remains aboard the dead officer’s boat, and the direction the clues point to will test Finn and the Guard to their limits.

When investigative reporter–and Finn’s boss’s sister–Gabby Rowley arrives, her unrelenting questions complicate an already volatile situation. Now that she’s back, the tug on Finn’s heart is strong, but with the risks she’s taking for her next big story, he fears she might not live through it.

Thrown together by the heinous crime, Finn and Gabby can’t ignore the sparks or judgments flying between them. But will they be able to see past their preconceptions long enough to track down an elusive killer, or will they become his next mark?


The usual suggestion emails did show up today but there was nothing that I found enticing. Maybe tomorrow.

So back to my new read. It’s at an exciting part. Their team has been called out to an oil drilling platform to investigate a crew member’s death. They are almost there when there is a loud noise and their helicopter goes down in the ocean. They managed to escape and make it to the surface. All except the pilot who was thrown out a window.

Mason is a deep sea diver, with no equipment, and he is going back down to find him. Crazy man

I need to see if he makes it.

I’m pretty sure he will be back, whether he has the pilot with him or not is less sure.

I’m pretty sure because, let’s face it, main characters rarely don’t make it back. Not this early in the story.

He may get beat to a pulp, maybe even have to be rescued but, he will be back.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Happy Reading!

You could read along and see for yourself.
