Review: The Deadly Shallows by Dani Pettrey

 HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to The Deadly Shallows by Dani Pettrey! 

I adored this book! 

5 Stars!

Oh. My. Stars! What a phenomenal conclusion to this series! I have been a super-fan of Dani Pettrey’s books for 10 years now (wow, time sure flies when you’re having fun!) I will forever be a fan of her books, and—with the exception of her debut Submerged which had been out for a few months at the time I read it!—I’ve devoured each one as it released, and am always eagerly anticipating the next one from the moment I turn the final page! And The Deadly Shallows was no exception! This book is AH-MAZING, and it totally blew me away! 

Not gonna lie, I have been not-so-patiently waiting two years for this book, and it was 100% worth every second of the wait! I was immediately re-immersed into this story world and the lives of these characters who feel like dear friends to me! 

I think Noah and Brooke’s story was my favorite by the tiniest bit, but I loved Caleb and Austin’s story so very much as well! 

This may sound crazy considering it’s romantic suspense, but there is something about Dani’s books that makes them comfort reads for me, I can easily fall into them and get lost. Reading one of Dani Pettrey’s books is, for me, like relaxing into a comfy hammock on a beautiful summer day, and allowing myself to just be still and savor the ride! I know I’m in for a wonderful story that will thrill me with pulse pounding suspense, fully engage my brain in trying to solve the fantastically written mystery, melt my heart into a puddle with the swoon-worthy romance, and encourage and strengthen my walk with Jesus in a myriad of beautiful ways, and The Deadly Shallows completely delivers all of the above! 

There seriously aren’t words to adequately express just how much I loved everything about this book, and it is one of my favorite reads of 2022! This book is everything and more, if I could I’d give it 10 stars instead of just 5!

It was bittersweet to turn the final page and have to say farewell to our beloved Coastal Guardians, but I’m eagerly anticipating anything and everything that Dani Pettrey writes next! 

I most highly recommend The Deadly Shallows! If you haven’t read a Dani Pettrey book yet, well I honestly don’t know what you’ve been doing with your life, but you must rectify that ASAP!

Review: The Heart of the Mountains by Pepper Basham

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY TO The Heart of the Mountains by Pepper Basham

I loved this book! 

My review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a beautiful, wonderful story! I adore Pepper Basham’s books and this one was no exception. I liked Cora instantly, she is an amazing and delightful heroine, and I loved her wit and grit! Jeb is just the sweetest hero, and from the first page to the last all the kind things he did made my heart melt into a swoony puddle! 

It was such a joy to return to Maple Springs, and get to spend time with old friends. 

The Heart of the Mountains is a powerful, gorgeously written story, and I loved every minute I spent reading it! 

I most highly recommend The Heart of the Mountains (as well as the previous novel, Laurel’s Dream!) and I cannot wait to read Pepper Basham’s next book! 

I received an ebook ARC copy of this book from the author. My review was not influenced in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
