Why read it?

2 authors picked Low Tide as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Dawn Lee was a friend and an inspiration to me. Cancer took her from us way too soon, but she left behind a large legacy of great books that were set on the Gulf coast in the panhandle of Florida. Low Tide is the first book in her Forgotten Coast Florida Suspense series which launched her into the bestseller ranks. If you ask anyone who’s read her what makes her writing so special, they’ll all tell you it’s her uniquely crafted characters. The plots and the twists of her stories are top-notch as well, but the characters are simply amazing.

From Don's list on coastal mystery and adventure.

Once I finished Low Tide, I binge read Dawn’s series. A year later she kindly steered and guided me in my author career, and a year after that we lost her to cancer. She was a beautiful soul, which shone through in her books.

Her protagonist, Maggie Redmond, is a police detective in the small Florida town of Apalachicola. Having lost her husband, she’s raising her two children and doing the best she can. Dawn drip-feeds us background and character arcs throughout the series, while taking the reader on an exciting journey, case by case.

I’m a sucker for…

From Nicholas' list on kick-ass females of sea and sky.
