About the Book

The Shifting Current Title: The Shifting Current 
Series: Coastal Guardians novella 
Author: Dani Pettrey 
Publisher: Gracie & Johnny Inc. 
Release Date: May 2, 2023 
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

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.

Book Review

The Shifting Current is the 4th installment in the Coastal Guardian series. It is a novella that takes place after the third book. While I think it could be read okay as a standalone, you'll definitely get more backstory by reading the series in order. 

I love a good novella, but I also always worry that there is going to be something missing in the story due to its shorter length. I feel like this is especially a concern with suspense... and yet that was not at all the case with this novella. It was a quick read, yes... but it didn't feel rushed or incomplete. I do wonder if that might be because the relationship between Logan and Emmy was already a bit familiar from the previous books. Either way, I couldn't get enough of this story! From start to finish, I was all in wondering what was going to happen next. It was different from the rest of the series as it didn't have a waterfront setting, but was a great addition and one that I thoroughly enjoyed!

If you're looking for a quick, exciting suspense read, this is one not to be missed!
