The Shifting Current

SERIES: Coastal Guardians novella
GENRE: Christian Romantic Suspense
PUBLISHER: Gracie & Johnny Inc.
RELEASE DATE: May 2, 2023
PAGES: 210

An elusive killer. A false identity. A deadly maze of lies.

When Coast Guard Investigative Service Special Agent LOGAN PERRY’s beloved grandfather is murdered, Logan races to his hometown of Cauldron Creek, New Mexico to investigate the murder. His teammate and friend, EMMY THORTON, insists on joining him. Not a good idea—not when he loves her, but carries a secret that he knows will tear them apart.

Emmy knows Logan will pursue the investigation no matter the cost, and she won’t let the man she loves plunge into a dangerous situation alone. She needs to be at his side, even if he believes friendship is her only reason for joining him.

What looks like a robbery gone wrong rapidly shifts, drawing Emmy and Logan into a dizzying maze where nothing is as it appears. Every lead slips through their fingers as threats against them grow deadlier at each turn. Having only each other to rely on, their love for one another deepens, but will they live long enough to admit their attraction to each other?

They’re in the killer’s sights. One wrong move puts their future together and their lives on the line.

It was the strangest dichotomy, but he understood it. He ached for her.

“Now we’re going to have to go through a narrow stretch along the trail. Just go slow.”

“Where exactly are we headed?”

“There’s an outcropping on the far ledge. We’ll tie up the horses and head out on the boulder. Sitting there, away from any man-made lights, you can see a gazillion stars.”

“A gazillion, huh?” She laughed. “Oh.” Her voice went up an octave. “I see what you mean about the trail narrowing.

“You’ll be good. Just let Wrangler do his thing. The horses have walked this trail so many times over the years, it’s second nature to them.”

Em stared down at what was visible of the steep drop-off in the moonlight. It had to be well over a hundred-foot drop.

“Easy now,” Logan said. “Nice and slow. You’ve got this. Just trust your mount—he knows what he’s doing.”

A noise like the crack of a whip sounded a millisecond before the rock by Em’s head shattered.

Wrangler reared back, and Logan’s heart lodged in his throat. Em.

    That excerpt is a heart in the throat moment. I am very interested in what or who caused the whip-like noise.
