Deadly attack.
A stolen weapon capable of massive destruction.
A painful secret that threatens to tear two hearts apart.

CGIS Agent Noah Rowley is shaken to the core when several of his valuable team members come under fire at his Coast Guard base. He and the rest of his team race to the scene and stop the attack, but not before innocent people die. Enraged and grief-stricken, he vows to do whatever it takes to bring the mastermind of the attack to justice.

Stunned by the ambush, Coast Guard Flight Attendant Brooke Kessler is evacuated by helicopter with the only surviving gunman. The badly wounded whispers cryptic information to Brooke, who immediately draws a target on her back.

As Brooke and Noah race to find answers, emotions flare between them. Noah tries to protect Brooke at all costs and hide the secret that prevents him from becoming who he wants to be – the right man for her.

Everything is at stake when a terrible truth is revealed. . . .

The attack was not the end of the game. This was just the beginning.

I have four words for you:


It’s worth it.



One of the things I love most about Danny Petrie’s Coast Guard series is that while each book focuses on the main couple, each book is also about the entire team. That way, you can always spend quality time with your favorite character or couple, even if they’re not the subject of the particular book you’re reading. It helps readers delve into this team of CGIS agents, as well as the CGIS-affiliated private investigators, journalists, and paramedics they love. So we huddled and fussed and re-read the first two books, trying very hard to be patient as we waited for the release Deadly Shallows. And oh my god, this story is SO worth the wait.

I’ve been “Team Neubrook” for a long time. Already invested in these characters from the previous two books, I enjoyed getting a closer look at the layers that made up their past and influenced their present. Wow, I’m still into some of those kisses, but their romance is more than just some swooning. As they each wrestle with their feelings for each other, Pettry gives us a master class in multi-dimensional characters and seamlessly weaves together a thread of faith that touches the soul without being preachy or inauthentic.

The author also took my pulse with the dangerous situations that Noah and Brooke kept getting into. A mass shooting at a Coast Guard base, a violent kidnapping, the theft of weapons of mass destruction, the illegal dumping of toxic waste…and that’s just the first couple of days. The tension builds with the body count and I find myself on the edge of my seat, convulsively turning the pages and often unsure if Noah and Brooke will survive to find the happily ever after we’ve been waiting for. The tension doesn’t let up even in the kissing scenes, keeping the mood of the story charged and dynamic.

Result: Deadly Shallows Danny Petrie is everything I hoped he would be and more. Readers will enjoy the don’t blink, don’t forget to breathe, high-stakes suspense as our favorite Coast Guardsmen race to save the day — and each other. Not only are we treated to front row seats as Noah and Brooke finally – finally – confess their deep feelings for each other, but we also get to watch Caleb and Austin stop fighting their feelings as well. Austen is one of my favorite characters on the show and her bickering with Caleb is hilarious. Add some kisses and it gets even more interesting. The thread of faith fits organically into the plot, and I appreciated that Noah and Brooke were mature and open with each other about their issues. (If you’re also looking forward to an Amy and Logan romance, don’t be disheartened to learn that this is the last book in the series. There’s a novella coming out next May that ties their story together.)
