This may be Lynette's best book to date. I would classify it as as contemporary romance mystery.

Dev Lang, a former Hollywood actress, has been living in hiding for four years, under an assumed name. After fabricating her death and moving to San Juan she thought she would be safe from her stalker. Her husband was killed shortly after moving to San Juan, leaving her to raise her infant daughter alone. Well, alone except for his twin brother, Carcen. The only way to keep him safe was to keep her f

I enjoyed this book quite a bit; frankly, more than I expected to. I am always wary of books that promote themselves as romance, because I enjoy romance but I tire of reading intimate details over and over again, as happens in so many romance or romantic suspense novels. Consequently, I am very happy to recommend The Unrelenting Tide because it allows the reader to enjoy a romance, some mystery, a bit of danger, and has a great twist in the plot, all without debasing itself with sensational sex ...more

Good clean suspense

Quality writing yet misses the mark of 'Christian fiction'

The author did a good job of telling a story. I enjoyed the two main characters and the outcome wasn't too predictable. Yet, Christian fiction should only be categorized as such when it meets certain biblical standards. Citing a verse and telling a story with it mind without talking of Christ, takes away the truth of being a Christian.
Christian fiction needs to address the issues of sin, repentance and salvation. Ultimately, God wants a

Lynnette Bonner is such an amazing author with great stories to tell.

She had me from the first sentence and kept me until the last. "Yes, darling girl, it does. It surely does."

If you're in the mood for a little romance, funny things kids say and do, mystery, and adrenalin rushes, this is the story for you. Lynnette Bonner provides for all these needs in her latest release, The Unrelenting Tide. I loved the main characters, Carcen, Devynne, and Marissa. The story kept my attention without any p

I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I usually add that statement at the end of my reviews, but this is one of the few free review copies that have prompted me to actually go out and purchase additional books from an author.

When I opened the review copy, I scanned it to get a taste of what I would be reading. Instead, I found myself curled up on the couch for hours, entrenched in the world of Devynne Lang, a former actress on the run from her stalker. Bonner does a wonderful
