Book Description: 
Kadence Reynold’s favorite pastime is exploring old ghost towns, but when she and her sister, Maysha, stumble across an old journal and cheap pendant hidden in the depths of a crumbling foundation near Eureka, Utah, their world is suddenly turned upside down. Immediately, strange dreams and premonitions begin to haunt “Kadie” as she learns more about the author of the journal, Charlotte Clark. Kadie sets out on a journey to learn more about Charlotte and her family, and she and Maysha travel to Bremerton, Washington, where they discover Charlotte's still living twin sister, Adelaide and her family.  

  Kadie and Maysha, upon arriving in Washington, are immediately immersed in Adelaide and Charlotte’s story. Kadie soon learns that Charlotte disappeared the night of a tragic fire that took the lives of Adelaide’s entire family. With the help of Logan Mathews, Adelaide’s handsome grandson, and Charlotte’s ever disconcerting presence, Kadie delves into the past. Hoping to solve the mystery of Charlotte’s disappearance, Kadie immediately discovers the secrets contained in the journal will toss her and Adelaide’s family into a world filled with mystery, past regrets, and dark unknowns.
My Review:
 Tide Ever Rising is a great mix of mystery, romance, and paranormal. This story grabs you from the first, and will not let you go until the end. It is easily a book that you can sit down and read in one sitting, if you have the time. I actually read about 3/4 of the book until my eyes wouldn't stay open any longer. 

Readers are first drawn in as Kadance (Kadie) and her sister, Maysha, are out exploring ghost towns. Kadie is a junior high history teacher in Utah. There in Eureka, Utah, Kadie finds an old can with a journal and a pendant in it. This new-found mystery pulls both sisters into a life changing adventure. They leave for Washington to return the contents to the closest living family member, Adelaide. Once they got to Washington and met Logan Matthews, Adelaide's grandson, both me and Kadie were taken in. I loved Logan and the type of man he was. He was strong, kind, loving, and very loyal to those he loves. Kadie and Logan were made for each other. I was enchanted by their love story. Though it happened quickly,they grew close by what they went through. Supporting characters 6-year-old Zaza, was darling (Logan's daughter), while Kadie's sister, Maysha, was sometimes annoying, I really liked Logan's devoted sister Beth. 

The scenes with the ghost were written well, realistic and not cheesy at all. The spirit of Charlotte, Adelaide's sister who had died many years before, ended up being a central part of the story. With loads of action, and bad guys threatening Logan's family...Tide Ever Rising will keep you reading until the wee hours of the morning.
