Marji Laine reviews Dangerous Tidings by Dana Mentink.
Short Version: (a la back cover)
SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH
I’m so glad I was given a free copy of Dangerous Tidings from Dana Mentink in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed hours of edge-of-my-seat time! From the beginning tension with creaking floorboards and eerie shadows, the hair on the back of my neck stood on end.
And horror of horrors when the hands shot out and grabbed Donna Gallagher. I struggled with a fear of that type of thing all through childhood, leaping onto my bed because I was afraid someone would reach out from under it.
But the author doesn’t stop with forcing me to face my childhood nightmares. The suspense mounts as questions breed more questions, and the sources of the answers further more threats. This story had my thoughts wound up so tight, I might as well have been playing a game of Twister.
I loved the ending! I won’t give it away, but it was exactly perfect. And I loved the fact that the hero was a Coastie! There aren’t so very many novels with heroes from that branch of our military, but what an amazing job they do!
But I’ll tell you my favorite thing in this story. The family! I’m delighted that the “Pacific Coast Private Eyes” series is sub-named “Sisters Fighting Crime.” I’m looking forward to reading stories from all of the delightful characters!
