    1 thought on “Low Tide

    1. I loved the author s debut work, See You , regarding it as one of the finest books I ve read in recent years So this opener for a new series was a must for me The author very kindly sent me a copy in advance of release day, so I could be one of the first to read it thank you very much This is a very different book, a thriller built around thirty something police lieutenant Maggie Redmond, divorced with two children Maggie s a very likable, very normal person, doing her job, raising her kids, not [...]

    2. Came across this book by chance and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it Interesting mystery read that manages to hook you in good, but does end on a cliffhanger To be clear, the book s mystery is solved, but the series itself has an underlying plot mystery and that s what I mean by cliffhanger This will be a series that probably won t be able to be read out of order Would recommend to those to give a try Definitely am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    3. It takes a lot for me to dislike a book but this one qualifies.A book needs to have a beginning, middle and end that fit and make sense, this one does not.The book is set up to be a mystery that starts with a murder suicide.The main character is investigating this murder suicide while dealing with her own personal demons and relationships.Then midway the book shifts from the murder to drug dealers and from there the whole thing falls apart.The ending was rushed and made absolutely no sense to th [...]

    4. Good story and an easy read but it ended abruptly with lots of unanswered questions I guess you have to read the next in the series to know what happens I like a story to have an ending and not one that leaves you hanging.

    5. Good start to a new series I enjoyed this book and the characters Good story line My new nay issue was that it was kind of an abrupt ending I will read another book by this author.

    6. Short and sweet but a great beginning to a serial of books written about an where I m staying this winter Many familiar places and the author has such a wonderful descriptive nuance to the people and places Took me just an hour or so to read this I found it at the local library Kudo s for displaying the local talent and area books I rarely if ever read a serial books, but I will read these even if it s just a pleasant break while on vacation.

    7. What a read Suicides, rape, domestic abuse, child abuse, drug abuse, meth labs, drug running, secrets, oysters,dancing, humor, romance plus all combine for a fast paced, well developed story with well defined, colorful, some quirky, some temperamental and well created characters.The main female character Maggie and her two children live in Apalachicola, Florida with their dog,Coco who is a five year old Catahoula Parish LeopardHound, a rooster named Stoopid and a mixture of White Silkie, Buff O [...]

    8. This book was not quite a mystery and not quite a suspense There s a little of both but not enough of either to put it firmly in one category or the other.It also had a somewhat unfinished feel to it Not poor writing or editing, but a lack of completeness about the book The main plot and several subplots are unresolved and the ending wasn t so much a cliffhanger as a pause in the action After reading it, I felt as if I had watched the first episode of a multi part miniseries.On the plus side, Ms [...]

    9. I got Low Tide as an Freebie and I m so very happy that I did Low Tide was short but kept me flipping the pages alright, tapping the Kindle screen till the very last page And immediately after I purchased book two I love a book that involves Florida I love a book that makes me wonder who did it I love a book that has a character that isn t necessarily nice but does things in such a way that you end up rooting for the bad guy This book came through on all three fronts.

    10. This was a new author for me, I happened upon it by per chance It begins with a bang No pun intended, and you meet Sheriff Wyatt and LT Maggie I was so hooked by the 5th page, I never moved for the time it took me to start til finish I will also tell you, I bought the whole series that day, and awaiting til Feb 15th for the next book It has mysteries, as in plural, funny, serious, great setting, Maggie is my Hero

    11. Another story that quit before endingPerhaps it is only me, but I really dislike being evolved in characters and story line and be left hanging, so the author can sell another book.

    12. CompellingThis was one of those books that a person once started could not be put down till the end Left me guessing

    13. An Excellent ReadThe author did an excellent job of holding my attention throughout the book I I generally fall asleep when I read but not this time Spellbinding

    14. I was instantly hooked on this fun, fast paced, Florida mystery series featuring Maggie Redmond, Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton, David, Maggie s kids, and the mysterious Mr Boudreaux Maggie is called to the scene of an apparent suicide Gregory Boudreaux has taken his own life Maggie has been grappling with a dark secret for years Gregory once raped her in the woods when she was a teenager, so she s not all that sad to see him go While working the case, Maggie and Wyatt finally acknowledge their building [...]

    15. I must add my praise for this unexpectedly complex book, which I bought because it s set in a location I ve loved for years and because I enjoy good mysteries I m surprised but very happy to report that McKenna gave me considerably than I expected Does it capture the flavor of the Appalachicola Eastpoint St George Island locale in the Florida Panhandle Yes, and very effectively and affectingly I love novels that allow me to breathe the air, touch the surfaces, see and hear a locale Low Tide doe [...]

    16. Stormy coastsBeing from a coast, i love the storms, and i love it when authors use the environment almost like another character This was only the first book they re a little dark, not quite your Florida summer beach read with quirky characters and laughs a mile long Its real, with characters almost too real, where good guys stent all that perfect, and bad guys not all that bad It s a little bit of Dave Robicheaux, just a little, and a bit of Florida the way the natives live it, and a bit of te [...]

    17. This first book in the series drew me in immediately I have never spent time in Florida other than Disney World so I reveled in the descriptions of the place and weather, so vivid it s as if I was right there Maggie Redmond is very relatable, all the characters intriguingly multi dimensional While this is a great mystery, the love interests were also captivating I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of reading this book and, like other reviewers, felt it ended abruptly Not all questions are answered [...]

    18. Another good read from McKenna This was the introduction of the characters The sheriff, his female investigator whom he is hot for , her son and daughter, parents, and the mysterious town thug who seems entirely too interested in her Good plot and some excitement I definitely will read of her series.This was especially interesting as this took place near the city I just visited in Florida I am going to go back there someday and check out Apalachacola.I would recommend this series to anyone who [...]

    19. As I invested in all 5 books in this series because of all the positive ratings, I really wanted to like the main character Maggie I was hoping she didn t have baggage like all the other female cops I have read, and there you have it, a cop that is damaged and with a failed marriage and coping with children on her own I couldn t say I liked her character much, she seemed a bit bland and didn t seem to have much of a personality And of course we need to read the next instalment to find out all th [...]

    20. I got the first 4 books in this series free so I didn t expect much I was very happily surprised at the high quality of the writing I finished this book in less than a day, it was riveting It was a little intense than most of the books I read cozy mysteries but the tough parts were well written and not just for shock value, but necessary to the story The mystery does not totally wrap up but continues into the next book, so if you want complete closure you will have to wait till a future book De [...]

    21. 3.5 StarsEntertaining mystery set near one of my favorite locations in Florida, St George Island and East Point Florida A rather abrupt stop to the book to entice you into reading book 2 of the series I liked the characters of Maggie and Wyatt enough to continue the series as well as the remaining mystery But I was quite unhappy with the ending that I give the book only 3.5 stars for abruptness.

    22. Having lived in the area of The Forgotten Coast from 1993 2009, the memories flooded back as I read this book The places are real, but the characters and murders are the amazing fantasy of Dawn Lee McKenna After reading it, I joined Kindle Unlimited so that I could have the rest of the series for free The descriptions are vivid and I feel as if I am there The characters are complex but believable I can t wait to see what happens next

    23. I got this free for my Kindle as part of a bundle so my hopes were not high but this first of a four part thriller that had me from the start, a gripping story line with strong characters, good pace and well written The only strange part for me is that the book ended very much with a lot of open questions, still got me to go to the second book in this series.

    24. OH MY This one is a phenomenal book It may be simply too realistic due to damn good research, but it hits all the right spots I admire this author She basically pulls out all the stops, giving us not only actions and dialogue, but also thoughts and dreams And oh Those dreams are incredible Another one for the highly recommended stack.

    25. I m Hooked I m hooked on this series This is book 1 and I can t wait to read the others in this series Well written bringing north Florida Gulf Coast to life Ms McKenna captures the true spirit of Apalachicola and its surroundings Being a native of Panama City, it felt like I was reading about people I know.

    26. The setting of Apalachicola FL made this a want to read A town I love, but that you would not expect to be central to a mystery Fun to know this is the first of a series Nothing heavy enjoyable reading I was really drawn to the sheriff He was well written Thanks to my brother for finding this series and recommending it.

    27. Read this bookThe author seems to have a deep understanding of the things that drive her characters, and what will be believable and a very clear and story driven writing style, This is an excellent book, read it for yourself

    28. I just love this series Maggie and Wyatt are well drawn, real and very likeable, but, importantly, not without flaws Apalachicola, Florida, is such an important character in the book too It has a great balance of light and dark and an oveall joy to read.
