The House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble (A Lavender Tides Novel Book 2)
The dangerous beauty of Lavender Tides is harboring secrets that reach around the world.
Ellie Blackmore is making a name for herself as a house flipper. But when her sister Mackenzie disappears, Ellie can’t focus on anything but uncovering what happened. Her only clue is the bloodstain on the deck of Mackenzie’s boat. Ellie knows her sister isn’t on the best of terms with her ex-husband, Jason, but he wouldn’t kill her—would he?
Coast Guard intelligence officer Grayson Bradshaw believes Mackenzie faked her own death after stealing a seized cocaine shipment. The problem is convincing Ellie, who seems to view him as the true enemy.
Both Ellie and Grayson want truth, but truth—and family—is often more complex than it first appears. From international terrorism to the peaceful lavender fields of Puget Sound, The House at Saltwater Point is a thrilling race to uncover the truth before it’s too late.
Coble is an author I really like and this book is a good example of why. This book works as a stand-alone, but is part of a series. It has a good bit of action, suspense and for this story, it's not heavy on faith. This means it works for me to share with those who are totally lost about what Christian fiction can be. Grayson and Ellie were good characters, and I enjoyed the story. I do want to read the whole series.
Thanks to Thomas Nelson and Net Galley for my copy of this book.
