Steeple Hill Books Riptide

Two surprises await high-stakes repo man Jake Jacobson on his latest job. First, old flame Kelsey Chambers. Second, gunfire! Seizing the luxury yacht should have been easy, but he hadn't planned on Kelsey's appearance. Or that smugglers would hijack the vessel to find an antique map hidden on board. The map is Jake and Kelsey's only leverage.but it carries a price. Without it, they're as good as dead. With it, they're the target of a relentless hunt. Their failed relationship has Kelsey afraid to rely on Jake again. Can she count on him with their lives on the line?

This book was extremely exciting and held one's attention, but it was a little unrealistic. Some parts, especially the romance, were a little bit hokey at times. Overall, this was a good, suspenseful book.

This story starts off with a bang, and the action doesn’t stop until the end of the book. Elizabeth Goddard does a good job of mixing faith in with suspense and romance. The action is real and the mystery is just that – a true mystery. Jake is a “repo” man who has found the boat he has contracted to return to the financing company. Along the way, he runs into an old flame of his, Kelsey. Because of her past history, Kelsey has trust issues, but finds herself in a situation where she needs to trust Jake with her life. The story kept me guessing until the very end of the book about who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and recommend it vey highly! I was given a copy of this book free of charge and these opinions are mine alone.

Riptide by Elizabeth Goddard from Love Inspired Suspense
Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Kelsey and Jake find themselves caught in the crosshairs of gunmen. Kelsey was working on a luxury yacht that Jake was trying to repo when things go horribly wrong. They are caught in the middle of a smuggling ring. Jake and Kelsey have a past relationship that ended badly because she could not trust. As they are now on the run, having been kidnapped and were able to escaped will she trust Jake when it counts the most. Can they get away and find a way to overcome the trust issues or will they be killed for an old map. Mix in a war veteran medic with a surprise ending and you have an action packed book. Riptide is full of heart pounding action sure to keep you at the edge of your seat. The author Elizabeth Goodard did a great job mixing faith and suspense in a realist way. I give this book 5 stars and highly recommend this great book.
