Review: Dark Tides by Celia Ashley

The depths of the ocean hide more secrets than one…

When a man without a memory washes up outside her lonely seaside cottage, Meg can’t explain the connection she feels to him. She should be afraid, suspicious, even angry that he would disturb her hard-won peace. But something about Caleb Hunter calls to her. On instinct, Meg asks this stranger into her home, her life—into the place left vacant by her dead husband, who drowned at sea a year to the day before Caleb appeared.

But something isn’t right. Half-buried memories begin to haunt Meg’s dreams, Caleb seems to know things he can’t possibly know, and there are signs that someone else is watching them, someone with a heart as cold as the sea…

The story started out ok, the blurb grabbed me, but then it went downhill rather fast.

Caleb washes ashore with no clothes on and not a discernable memory except his name. Meg finds him by her house on the beach. She’s immediately frightened but as he talks she feels an unexplained connection to him. She realizes he is the man that has been haunting her dreams. Meg invites him to stay in her home and called a doctor. The doctor wants follow-up tests but Caleb refuses to go. Meg decides to help him.

From here it just went downhill. I did enjoy some of the paranormal aspects in the book and the plot twists. But I found myself wanting more. Unfortunately, as a whole, it just didn’t work for me.
