9780983843108: A Killing Tide: Columbia River Thriller (Volume 1)

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Novel 

Where there's smoke... 
Kaz Jorgensen is used to fear--the anxiety of negotiating treacherous currents as she captains her family's fishing trawlers, the terrifying nightmares of the day she almost lost her life on the river. But now a man is dead, an arsonist has set the Anna Marie ablaze, and her brother is missing. 
There's fire... 
Michael Chapman knows how to take the heat--as the new fire chief of Astoria, Oregon, he's dealt with more than his share. No way can he afford to get involved with the sister of a suspect. But the scorching attraction between him and Kaz burns out of control, and when someone takes a shot at her, his protective instincts kick in. Whatever happens, he can't allow another woman to die because of him. 

Reviews: 

"...an intriguing contemporary romantic suspense with an engrossing plot and lots of mystery that keeps you guessing. With this debut, P.J. Alderman shows that she is clearly an author to look out for." --Fallen Angel Reviews 

"The plot twists and turns like a fishing line in a rip tide." --New Mystery Reader 

"If P.J. Alderman's first foray into writing is any indication then we should be on the receiving line for some enjoyable books. Her characters are very real and kind of rough around the edges, which is what make them so wonderful to get to know. Even the bad guys have their moments. That was what made it an interesting ride to see who was responsible for the murders, arson and general mayhem. Alderman, who paints a wonderful picture of the lives and trials of the fishermen born into a life aboard the trawlers and have to circumnavigate treacherous waters, brings the story to life." --Fresh Fiction 

"For a debut author, P.J. Alderman does a fantastic job of creating intrigue, suspense, drama, romance, and so much more. The plot is well laid out and incredibly plausible with characters who are full and real...if A Killing Tide is P.J.'s debut, a bright future is on the horizon and I can't wait to see more." --Once Upon a Romance 

"Kudos to Ms. Alderman on a job well-done. The edgy THE KILLING TIDE is a fabulous debut, an edge-of-your-seat chiller guaranteed to thrill." --Romance Reader at Heart

About the Author:

     Bestselling author P. J. Alderman has spent more than two decades in the Pacific Northwest port towns that inspire her romantic thrillers and mysteries. Her contemporary Columbia River thriller, A Killing Tide, was a RITA finalist and recently climbed the charts to stay on the New York Times and USA Today bestselling lists for eight weeks.     Alderman's Port Chatham cozy mysteries are based on the history of one of the Pacific Northwest's most notorious port towns. Also bestsellers, these books take readers on a journey back in time to a lawless nineteenth century waterfront, blending history, murder, and present-day supernatural sleuthery.

Review:

"P.J. Alderman's ...characters are very real and kind of rough around the edges, which is what makes them so wonderful to get to know... Alderman... paints a wonderful picture of the lives and trials of the fishermen born into a life aboard the trawlers and have to circumnavigate treacherous waters." --Fresh Fiction"Alderman introduces diverse characters, mixes them up with plots upon subplots, and sets it all against the backdrop of small-town Astoria, Oregon. Better still, she makes it work." --Amy Wolff Sorter, Reviewer, Amazon USA, UK, & Germany
