This is the first in a new series from Tamra and I really enjoyed it!

It had everything that I've come to love about this author. There was enough suspense to keep me hooked and enough romance to keep me turning the pages!

Tamra seems to always give me a character that I love... this time it's Aunt Betsy. I adored her colorful self so much.

I'm looking forward to the next book, just so I can see where these characters are headed.

This was a wonderful read for the long weekend! I so enjoyed this book and it was book 1 in the Coastal Redemption. It was mysterious and exciting plus the characters were so good. This book was a 3 base hit for Tamra.

I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review which I always give!

Another great book by Tamra Lassiter. This is a new series called Coastal Redemption.

Cassie comes to Palm Coast, Florida to visit her Aunt Betsy. When she arrives, she finds that her aunt is missing. Deputy Tanner Reid is called by a friend of her aunt to help. There's murder and mayhem in this "who dunnit" romance along with twists and turns in the plot.

My only issue is that the love story seemed a little rushed but I'm not sure how it could have been changed. I still liked the story. It was

Cassie Taylor's Aunt Betsy is missing from her secure gated community of Palm Coast. So she starts to look for her, and finds a body of a man instead, which raises more questions. There are many strange things going on that are raising red flags, not to mention the super sexy deputy investigating doesn't want her anywhere near this case. Tanner Reid is the deputy on the case, and he knows that he can't get involved with Cassie, even though her feels a strong attraction to her, especially since s ...more

Tamra Lassiter does it again with another suspenseful love story that I couldn’t put down.

Cassie goes for a pre planned visit with her aunt Betsy, only to discover when she gets there that her aunt is missing. Now she has to convince the local police detective, Tanner, and her family that she really is missing. They seems to think all the evidence points to Betsy going away with a man on a cruise, that is until that man is found murdered.
Tanner is on the case to find Cassie’s missing aunt. He s

I love starting a new series especially when it's well written. Ms. Lassiter writes a intriguing story that encompasses murder, stolen gems and blossoming love. Cassie's aunt gets abducted from a gated retirement community. One of her neighbors called in a favor asking a local deputy sheriff to investigate. Sparks fly from the first meeting of Cassie and Deputy Tanner. Cassie tries to hold together in front of Tanner because she doesn't want to be perceived as a weak woman. Tanner tries to be s ...more

This was a light and easy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I was pulled into this story right from the beginning with the mystery of Aunt Betsy. I loved how the author was able to intertwine two plot lines of a blossoming love story along with a mystery crime.

Cassie, Tanner and Aunt Betsy were all loveable characters, that were well developed throughout the story. Some of the story was a little predictable but then an unexpected twist would be delivered to keep the reader guessing.

• Sweet & Warm
Tamra has done it again! What a great way to start a new series. You'll be pulled in from the very beginning and won't want to stop teasing until this mystery is solved. There are twists and turns that you don't see coming until they come barreling forward, but it's more than worth the time it'll take for you to read TIDE OF DECEIT (Coastal Redemption Book1). Now I can't wait to find out what's in store next with Wave

I accepted an ARC in exchange for an honest review

*Spoiler FREE*

My first Tamra Lassiter book so I went in not knowing what to expect. An enjoyable little crime novel with lots mystery, intrigue and a touch of romance to sweeten the deal. Twists and turns and a somewhat unexpected resolution although I had my suspicions about the culprit Tamra did a good job throwing me off course. Well-written characters and I found Cassie to strong and independent female lead which I really enjoyed and I espec

DISCLAIMER: I voluntarily requested an ARC of this book through the author. This is my honest review.

New series from phenomenal Tamra Lassiter. It i a page turner. If you've read her Role of Fate series then you know Tamra writes her characters with amazing personalities and conflicting emotions that make them look deeper in themselves to find what it is they want and need.
Suspenseful romance that will tug your heart. Tanner and Cassie are brilliantly portrayed, and I couldn't get enough!

Cassie comes to visit her Aunt Betsy but she is missing or is she? Was she kidnapped or on a love cruise? In steps Deputy Tanner, who though he wants to solve the crime can't get Cassie off his mind. Cassie is such a sassy character - really liked her. Throw in a few people trying to impede the crime solving along with some real friends and you have a great story. great start to this series.

Spunky female lead. Tanner, deputy, was likeable, trying his best to solve the disappearance of Aunt Betsy, all the while trying to keep Cassie safe and out of danger. Not an easy job! Good book. Ally's well, that ends well!
InD'tale Magazine
"Tide of Deceit" is a wonderful romantic mystery, with a fast-paced plot and a sweet but oh-so-steamy romance!

Read full review in the 2017 November issue of InD'tale Magazine.
