Ashlyn Forsyth believes she and her husband have come to idyllic St. Simons Island to restore romance to their flagging marriage. Then, without warning, Craig hands Ashlyn, divorce papers. In shock, Ashlyn watches him drive off with a female colleague from his office. She soon discovers he is being pursued by the Russian mafia and investigated by the FBI for money-laundering.
Abandoned on St. Simons Island, Ashlyn faces not only emotional turmoil but financial ruin, the shipwreck of her career, harassment by the FBI, and pursuit by the Russian mafia. Even as her ordered life plunges into chaos, she finds herself increasingly attracted to Remy Jeandeau, a shrimp boat captain.
Will she find the spiritual resources needed to overcome adversity? Will attraction blossom into romance?
Riptide hits the ground running and never lets up. Like a short story, the novel begins in the middle of a scene of great tension, wasting no time getting the reader into the center of the action. Somehow the author is able to sustain the tension throughout the entire novel: I found myself looking forward to getting back to the book so I could resume running alongside the likeable characters in this high-octane adventure.
The book’s title refers to turbulence on the sea caused by abrupt changes. The main character’s previously calm and predictable life has likewise been torn asunder by developments beyond her control. Facing a sudden divorce, Ashlyn Forsyth displays all the ambivalence of someone going through an emotional trauma. We join her in a series of intense trials and temptations as she is pushed almost beyond her limits (divorce is the least of her immediate troubles). We see the human ability to survive impossible circumstances with God’s help as she leans on her Savior du
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Riptide by Eric E. Wright. It was fast-paced with many twists and turns which made exciting reading. I loved the island setting and learned interesting facts about the shrimp trade. Not only was it a good read, it also provided helpful insight into coping with divorce and learning to move on after a crisis in life. Well done!
When Ashlyn Forsythe is dumped by her husband on St. Symons Island, she immediately discovers she has no credit, no car, and no house. She is driven to find out why her husband was involved in money laundering for the Russian mob. The FBI question her and she doesn’t know who to trust. Danger lurks at every turn, money is running low, and the police don’t believe she is innocent. Just to complicate matters, shrimp boat captain Remy Jeandeau rescues her more than once and makes her heart race.
Riptide has suspense, intrigue, romance, and exotic location. Ashlyn is a very believable heroine whose fate the reader really cares about. The story speeds up as the FBI, her daughter, and the shrimp boat captain all become involved in trying to save Ashlyn from the mob. This book is a page turner that I recommend to all lovers of mystery stories.
