When the Tide Turned

Product Details


"When the tide turned" is beautifully written compulsive read which got me hooked! VERDICT: Must read! It's "THE PERFECT" mystery! From Pen and Ink Blog "When The Tide Turned written by M. L. Eaton is a page turning thriller that hooks it's audience with historical accuracy while adding in a touch of the supernatural, cloak and dagger mystery, bringing them all together in a riveting thriller. Hazel Dawkins, new mother and wife as well as a solicitor is asked to fill in for a colleague of hers at the firm prompting her to return from maternity leave earlier than planned. Hazel gladly accepts since she is able to bring her child to work with her. And thus begins Hazel's journey into the supernatural and facing deadly threats to her and her daughter. The moment she agrees to return to work, a dark evilness invades her home, her husband and others. She begins to dream of a man tied, lying-face down in a cove waiting for the tide to turn and torture him with a slow painful death of drowning. He is a man of the past but whose past she is not sure. The colleague hands over a very complex and barely legal case surrounding a painting of a storm at sea of the night Napoleon prepares to invade England. The mystery surrounding the painting, the pegged man on the cove, and weird experiences Hazel faces daily has her fearful but determined to solve the ever growing mystery. Eaton provides detailed historical information woven skillfully around the mystery and supernatural thus providing one with a nail biting read. Hazel's character demonstrates how strong a woman can be and how she handles the stereotype of women being perceived as weak to her advantage. Combining the three genres into one was interesting and entertaining. Eaton provides a well-executed plot written clearly and methodically. The character development was well done although in an almost teasing fashion - once you decided you didn't like a character, Eaton would confound you with adding a twist making you like them. This was a good solid book, one I would highly recommend especially if you enjoy historical mysteries and the supernatural. Read her other books, you will equally enjoy them as well!" Charla White: Words-a-plenty The cold war overshadows When the Tide Turned, the second in Marion Eaton's Mysterious Marsh Series. Instead of Kennedy pitting his wits against Khrushchev, solicitor Hazel Dawkins - the bulwark against evil in Eaton's When the clocks stopped - returns to take on more dodgy characters. The ever-resourceful Hazel, this time with baby Jessica in tow, is thrust once more into a maelstrom of dramatic events - blackmail, kidnapping and shooting - that swirl around a painting. ... Eaton weaves thread upon thread of incident and by the end has reeled them all in to a satisfactory conclusion .... Nicholas Goodman: Law Society's Gazette. We could easily forget the rest of the world as we follow Hazel through with her investigations into the odd behavior of her client, connections between painting and her visions, dark secrets linking past and present, where it all takes her and every facet of her life affected, including those who've intruded in upon it and will go to great lengths to stop her learning the truth. As she makes her way to startling discoveries, old and new, Eaton takes us through action and intrigue that rise like the tide of the title and epigraph, as we follow breathlessly behind, when there is so much at stake. Quite simply this is an addicting read.One will be unsurprised to learn is a B.R.A.G. Medallion honoree. I highly recommend readers do the same. Lisl Zlitni: Between-the Sleeps
