Tides of Lies is a quick and enjoyable romantic suspense. I only wish it had been a bit longer. I wanted more of Holden and Julia together. Despite that, I felt like I got to know the characters pretty well. THe author did a nice job of giving me enough background on each of them. I was rooting for their HEA. While I did figure out the secret Julia was holding pretty quickly, I wasn't able to figure out the identity of the killer until the end. The motive behind it all was a surprise. I definitely recommend you pick this one up.
