A Vast and Gracious Tide Blog and Review Tour

Welcome to the blog tour and giveaway for A Vast and Gracious Tide by Lisa Carter, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


a vast and gracious tide Title: A Vast and Gracious Tide  
Author: Lisa Carter  
Publisher: Gilead  
Release Date: June 12, 2018
Genre: Inspirational Romantic Suspense  

A wounded veteran and the police chief's daughter must work together to bring a killer to justice

Caden Wallis lost friends, his girlfriend, and even his leg to the ravages of war. He arrives on the Outer Banks broken and still reeling, struggling to make peace with his new life.

McKenna Dockery has been stuck in limbo since her fiancé died three years ago. Now, when the handsome yet heartbroken Caden arrives at her doorstep, she starts to wonder if there may be hope for her heart after all . . .

But no sooner do they meet than a man is found murdered on McKenna's property--and Caden is the prime suspect. The two must learn to trust each other, or no one will be safe in the tangled web of conspiracy, greed, and deceit lurking in the tidal marshlands of the Outer Banks.  


In three strides, McKenna reached the man lying on the sand. His pant leg had ridden up to his shin, revealing not actual flesh but a prosthesis.

Judging from his tactical pants, maybe a veteran. Dark hair feathered over the collar of an army-green T-shirt. Around his neck a metal chain glinted. Dog tags?

Something warned her not to help him. To save his pride and allow him to stand on his own.

"I got it," he grunted and rolled onto his side. "I don’t need your help."

By sheer force of will—and locking her arms behind her back—she stopped herself from rushing to his rescue. "I wasn’t offering."
