    Riptide by Elizabeth Goddard from Love Inspired SuspenseTalk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Kelsey and Jake find themselves caught in the crosshairs of gunmen. Kelsey was working on a luxury yacht that Jake was trying to repo when things go horribly wrong. They are caught in the middle of a smuggling ring. Jake and Kelsey have a past relationship that ended badly because she could not trust. As they are now on the run, having been kidnapped and were able to escaped will she trust Jake when it counts the most. Can they get away and find a way to overcome the trust issues or will they be killed for an old map. Mix in a war veteran medic with a surprise ending and you have an action packed book. Riptide is full of heart pounding action sure to keep you at the edge of your seat. The author Elizabeth Goodard did a great job mixing faith and suspense in a realist way. I give this book 5 stars and highly recommend this great book.

    Ever been at the wrong place at the wrong time??? That’s the start of this adventure for Jake & Kelsey when the shooting begins!!!Great inspiration read mixed with intrigue & suspense taking place on the sea and in the wilderness. There is a real mystery mixed with romance between the main characters.The author keeps you on the edge while trying to figure out who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. Action packed from beginning to end.

    I loved the concept of Jake, once again, finding a kidnapped woman on the luxury vehicle he was repossessing. The fact that it happened to be Kelsey, the woman who broke his heart, felt a bit too convenient. That said, their doubts and uncertainty about each other made the book's plot twists have good intensity.

    You know when you can pick up a book and be captivated right from the first page and the background, scenery and dialogue in the book just draws you right in and make you feel like you are right there in the action? Well this book isn't one of those. The book started off with a bang! Then the two main characters realized they had a history and second guessed each other for the rest of the book (through life and death situations!) nearly until the ending. Their thinking and conversations were stilted and disjointed. The plot seemed to jump around. I had a difficult time even finishing this book. I love suspense and buy all of Love Inspired's Suspense line but this one was one of the rare duds in my opinion. Glad I got this one at my local library and didn't waste money on it.

    This story starts off with a bang, and the action doesn’t stop until the end of the book. Elizabeth Goddard does a good job of mixing faith in with suspense and romance. The action is real and the mystery is just that – a true mystery. Jake is a “repo” man who has found the boat he has contracted to return to the financing company. Along the way, he runs into an old flame of his, Kelsey. Because of her past history, Kelsey has trust issues, but finds herself in a situation where she needs to trust Jake with her life. The story kept me guessing until the very end of the book about who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and recommend it vey highly! I was given a copy of this book free of charge and these opinions are mine alone.

    This story has a great mix of romance and suspense with faith interwoven. I really enjoyed the 'real' aspect of this book. You begin in the middle of the action, with Kelsey being shot at on the boat, and she finds Jake in the wheelhouse repossessing it. This begins an action packed adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat while also remaining realistic. Jake is a great character, struggling with what is going on while also trying to save Kelsey. I truly enjoyed this book, and loved the interplay between the characters their faith, and many people running around with weapons!

    This was the first time I have read a book by Elizabeth Goddard and I loved it. I can't wait to read more by her. This particular book held my interest each step of the way and I had a hard time putting it down. I love how the two main characters were forced to put their past history aside and work together for survival, but also during the tough situations they also were able to work on their past history and in the end able to put it behind. I was happy with the way the book ended.

    "Riptide" was a fabulous book. It was suspenseful, intriguing, and intense. Kept you turning the pages. I definitely recommend this book. This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last.

    Very good story. Twists and turns to keep you from guessing what was really going on from page one till the end. Great characters who played their roles well.
