MOURNING TIDE starts at a somewhat slower pace than the non-stop action in Kling's debut SURFACE TENSION, but this mirrors the changes in Seychelle’s fictional life. She’s a mother now of an adopted boy, and wrestling with her own insecurities about her mothering skill. While the domestic side of the story creates a difference pace at the beginning of the story, this in no way weakens the book. Rather, for me, it strengthens the series and shows the readers a deeper, more intimate view of Seychelle. And for action-addicts, rest assured: there’s plenty of the edge-of-your-seat adventures in this book to keep interest and suspense high. Kling excels at her in the water/on the boat action scenes in this book as well as in prior books in the series.
At the beginning of MOURNING TIDE, Seychelle has promised to stop getting involved in dangerous situations so she can protect, nurture, and love her young, adopted son. But when Seychelle finds human bones on a salvaged vessel—and later learns the bones are those of a talented, young woman she once knew—there’s no stopping Seychelle from setting out to find the killer. Her sidekick and lover, B.J., helps her as their adventures take them from South Florida to the Bahamas. Be prepared for a surprising twist near the end!
Lots of action, lots of boats, lots of all the good stuff that made all of Kling’s earlier books so great. I’ve compared her to John McDonald in the past, but with MOURNING TIDE, she adds a new depth with her nuanced portrayal of Seychelle. Kling is one of the best—and certainly most authentic—of current Florida writers. She knows her boats, her waters, and her Florida, and conveys her knowledge in well-crafted sentences, tense plots, and complex characters. A definite winner!
I’ve read all the prior books in the series, but now, after reading MOURNING TIDE, I’m going back and re-read them.
Mourning Tide picks up a few years after the last book with Seychelle on her tugboat in Ft. Lauderdale, FL finding a body on the sailboat she is salvaging. The ensuing mystery takes the reader into the life of evangelical big-money Churches and through the Abacos islands of the Bahamas. This sums up the story but does not begin to describe what a great storyteller Kling is. I was immediately pulled into the story and kept turning pages long into the night. Kling is a master of place in her books. She sets the scene and anchors her stories with such precision and exact details that there is no doubt she has well-researched her surroundings and has lived many aspects of the tales. This is the mark of a great storyteller.
I have loved this series for a long time and know you will too.
