A wounded veteran and the police chief’s daughter must work together to bring a killer to justice
Caden Wallis lost friends, his girlfriend, and even his leg to the ravages of war. He arrives on the Outer Banks broken and still reeling, struggling to make peace with his new life.
McKenna Dockery has been stuck in limbo since her fiancé died three years ago. Now, when the handsome yet heartbroken Caden arrives at her doorstep, she starts to wonder if there may be hope for her heart after all . . .
But no sooner do they meet than a man is found murdered on McKenna’s property–and Caden is the prime suspect. The two must learn to trust each other, or no one will be safe in the tangled web of conspiracy, greed, and deceit lurking in the tidal marshlands of the Outer Banks.

In My Opinion…
While Lisa Carter has written several books, A Vast and Gracious Tide is my first introduction to this author. I was pulled into the story from the first page.
Filled with tension, a plethora of suspects, and memorable side characters, Carter reels readers in and keeps them on the hook until the final chapter. The setting became its own character, immersing me in the sea, sand and tight-knit community on the outer banks. Then there was the tiny bit of World War II history I was unaware of previously.
The push-and-pull Caden kept up with McKenna annoyed me a bit toward the end, but it did manage to highlight the importance of getting your heart right with God before you can accept the gifts He gives us in life. I had an inkling of the villain from pretty early on, but uncovering whether I was right and learning the motivation is expertly revealed over the course of the story.
Overall, an enjoyable romantic suspense, heavy on the romance. And I will be picking up more books authored by Carter in the future.
