Low Tide by Dawn Lee Mckenna

Bold. Honorable. Damaged. Meet Lt. Maggie Redmond.

Lt. Maggie Redmond is called to a crime scene on St. George Island, where she is met with the body of Gregory Boudreaux. The medical examiner calls it a suicide, but no one knows that Maggie has a horrible connection to the dead man.

When investigating an apparent suicide opens a door to her past, Lt. Maggie Redmond must face her personal demons. No one knows her horrible connection to the dead man on the beach, but she relives the horror over and over in her nightmares.

Bennett Boudreaux has a certain charm, despite being the town's most powerful and dangerous man. With his nephew's suicide, his sudden interest in Maggie has people starting to wonder… Maggie included. He may know of her secret and suspect her of murder, but she can't help but be drawn him.

Between the investigation, Little League, and time with her kids, single-mom Maggie also juggles helping a young woman and her children escape the clutches of a volatile drug dealer who would love to see her dead. Add in a budding romance with her best friend and boss, Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton, and it's just another day on the job.

“Yeah, you'd better buckle up.”Ms. McKenna is able to introduce you to a character and make them so lifelike and real, that you're certain she's telling you about someone she knows very well. I understand there will be several more in this series coming in rapid fire succession, so read fast. I see nothing but success for this author, she's definitely found her corner with the Forgotten Coast series. Florida writers need to watch out, or better still read Dawn McKenna's books. She's the real deal…~Amazon Reviewer
