Dark Tide by Susan Sleeman

Book Description:


Gina Evans knows her brother was murdered—even if the police won't believe her. After catching a quick glimpse of the evidence her brother had gathered, the same criminals are after her and her baby niece. And Gina's only hope is the man she left behind. Despite the painful memories, private investigator Derrick Justice won't fail Gina and her baby. Yet now, the woman he never stopped loving and the baby he's come to adore are in a killer's crosshairs. But can Derrick trap the cold-blooded murderer before he strikes again?

The Justice Agency: Family and law enforcement go hand in hand
My Thoughts:
I was excited about this book.  Gina is running from a murderer.  He killed her brother and now her best friend.  Not sure how she is being tracked, she turns to the one man who likely never wants to see her again for help.  Derrick loved Gina and she ended the relationship.  Now she is back and terrified, trying to keep her and her niece out of the hands of a murderer.  He is too caring of a man to let anything happen to them, but he doesn't want either of them hurt by the feelings that are obviously still between them.
I really liked Derrick.  He was a completely stand up guy.  Even if he was crushed by Gina leaving him, he was going to do whatever he could for her.  His family was also completely awesome.  They stepped up to help and protect Gina, even if they had some hard feelings towards her.  Gina has issues from her past, as does Derrick, but she still loves him and doesn't want him hurt.  There was plenty of action and suspense in this one.
It was a 4/5 for me.  I plan to go back and read the others in the Justice series.

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
