This is a great addition to this series and is great for anyone who enjoys heartwarming family dramas and romantic suspense.

Elle Devereaux is devastated when both her parents are killed in an aeroplane crash. However, everything gets worse when the company they own is placed under Federal Investigation and  declared bankrupt. Add in the supposition that they may have committed suicide and there's no wonder she's feeling so unsettled. When she is clearing out her old family home she makes an unex

Thoroughly enjoyed this story. Elle's life is in turmoil, her parents suspected suicide in a small plane crash and she is going through things in the attic and finds a blood stained stuffed elephant. This starts triggering her memory and discovers a girl looking for her missing sister. Gabe, an ex police detective now PI, who is working for Elle's sister, is skeptical of Elle until the DNA test comes back. Gabe has had his heart breaks in life and is a recovering alcoholic. As Elle and Gabe work ...more

This is book 3 in the Cape Cod Shore series but it can be read as a stand alone book. The characters from the previous stories are present and have their lives updated. Elle's parents die in a plane crash and while getting the house ready to sell comes across a trunk in the attic that has a dress and a bear. It triggers some violent flashbacks and she discovers she was abducted from a family and "adopted" by her parents. A good story with a scary plot line that this could even happen. I received ...more

Just okay. My first from this author--I can see how fans of the series would want to read this one, as Alex, the heroine from book 2 ( Caught in the Current ), plays a rather significant role (especially in the major event that happens toward the end!) but on its own it's rather....meh. More telling than showing, characters who spend more time in their heads than out, and a mystery that essentially gets solved behind the scenes. The writing was a bit on the clunky side; initially I'd wondered ...more

‘Dangerous Water‘ is the third title in the ‘Cape Cod Shores‘ series, and what an emotional roller coaster ride it turned out to be. It’s been about two years since the previous book was released, long enough that I did a quick, skim reread of ‘Caught In The Current‘ to bring myself up to speed on the series. I don’t often do that, yet the subject of Gabe and Elle’s romance ties in so closely with Alex and Jay’s lives that I really wanted to refresh my memory. There a

I received this arc from Tule Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This is a terrific series. I hadn’t read the first 2 books so I got them and read them first. I loved all the characters in the series. They made themselves into a family of friends. The suspense in each book was a great touch and added to the appeal of the storyline. In Dangerous Water, we finally meet Alex’s long lost sister, Elle. We watch as she and Gabe meet and experience a range of emotions during the book.

Dangerous Water is the third book in Charlee James’ Cape Cod Shore series and is a slow-burn romantic suspense. Although I’ve read the first two books in the series I don’t think it’s necessary—you’ll enjoy this book just nicely as a stand-alone.
Elle Devereux certainly has her world upturned. With the suspected suicide of her parents in a plane crash, the discovery of a bloodstained elephant in their attic while clearing personal effects before the house is sold and the sense that she is being f

Riveting, Superb, Awesome, Fantastic!! Charlee you are amazing! This being the last book of the Cape Cod Series, she really did save the best for last. All of her books are very well written and you can see the progression of characters, story lines, plot twists, etc. with each book she writes. The captivating way she introduces the characters and draws you into their lives. Charlee also includes very well -known places & landmarks in her stories so it just makes everything come

Once again, this author delivers an entertaining, touching, at times heartbreaking but also heartwarming story.
Elle Devereaux’s life has been turned upside down. She grew up in luxury and now after her parents died in an airplane accident (or was it?), she discovers their business was in bankrupt, the Feds are investigating, and it appears she was not adopted but kidnapped.
But in the midst of this devastation, she believes she has a sister in Boston and goes there to find out.

Dangerous Water by Charlee James is the third book in the Cape Cod Shore Series. It has been two years since book two was released so I had to refresh my memory of the supporting characters. Not because I could enjoy or follow this story without confusion because it reads well on its own. Mostly it was because I knew I should know the supporting characters. The two couples were the focus of the first two books.

This story centers around Elle Devereaux who fears she was kidnapped as a child and Ga

This is book three of Cape Cod Shore, and I was given an advance reader’s copy of this book in exchange for my review.
Loved Elle and Gabe’s story and really liked how the author gave you his side and her side it just gave the characters their own personal souls that you were given a peek into.
The story line of a young girl being kidnapped had so many twists and things I never guessed were coming . And there was some danger that had me scared, but oh how the book came to an end was just so heart

What a great ending to this series. I loved the characters and the story line was very entertaining. It was a very mysterious read at times. From the moment I picked up the book I had a hard time putting it down. The plot took so many twists and turns it kept me guessing chapter to the chapter. I really look forward to reading more by this author. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.

Mystery and sweet love story as well . A tough guy investigator, divorced, recovered alcoholic, who helps in reuniting two sisters and falls in love with one .

Discovering that you are not who you think you are is bad enough but to discover it after your parents' tragic deaths is even worse.

Elle Devereaux grew up always thinking she knew who she was and where she belonged in the world. But that changed after her parents death. She found papers that said she was adopted. And she started to have nightmares. Unexplained dreams that scare her. Elle sees a video that leads her to contact someone who is looking for her long lost missing sister. This leads E

While i enjoyed this book I feel I would have had a better grasp of it if I had of read earlier books in this series as sometimes IO was left a little confused While the book flowed well I wouldn't say it was one of the best reads I have had this year

Elle Devereaux has questions first her parents appear to commit suicide in a plane accident then the comapny they built is under investigation Then when clearing the attic she finds a blood stained elephant all leading to memories she has submerged

DANGEROUS WATER by Charlee James. This was my first venture into this author's works, and even though it was book 3 of a series, that only had a slight impact on the understanding of the story - there are several friends from previous books so they were unfamiliar, but, again, they did not have a huge impact. Overall, the story was ok. It had great promise but it dragged just a bit for me. I was hoping for more action and more involvement in the unraveling of the mystery. The main characters - G ...more

I struggled to get into this book. It had a Harlequin tone to it that I wasn't expecting. I think the heroine could have used a little more backbone to come off as a more substantial character. I liked Gabe, but Elle seemed almost like a wilting lily.
I wish the mystery had taken up a bigger part of the book.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
