Take a trip to North Carolina’s Outer Banks in Lisa Carter’s A Vast and Gracious Tide! With characters in need of healing and mysteries in need of solving, it’s a story with more ups and downs than the ocean waves crashing upon the island shores.

McKenna Dockery stumbles upon Caden Wallis, wounded in body and soul, on the beach and cannot resist her natural instinct to rescue him. Their connection is undeniable from the start, but his arrival suspiciously coincides with occurrences of murder and arsonwith the threat of danger at every turn, the two must question who can truly be trusted.

"Don't listen to the fear. Never lose your dreams. Once you do, you might as well be dead."

I enjoyed A Vast and Gracious Tide so much. Every time I opened up the book to keep reading, I couldn’t help the smile that ended up on my face. I just fell in love with McKenna and Caden and kept rooting for them through their struggles, doubts, and dangerous interactions. Sure, Caden’s growth (or lack thereof) frustrated me many times, and I disliked McKenna’s indecision in her love triangle (even though her actions and responses make sense within context), but I cared about these characters and wanted the best for them, of course. Theirs is a fun, uplifting, sweet story to read.

So, if you’re looking for a contemporary book to read, full of mystery and romance, I recommend A Vast and Gracious Tide. It’s a good oneand perfect to take to the beach with you, too!
