**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**
Rafe got a call from the police chief. Scotty Ferres was 24, engaged to be married, and dead. He was found on the dock near a chartered fisher boat, The Sea Scorpion, which was owned by Rafe. Scotty was part of Rafe's crew. Rafe was called to identify his body. Jamie was his 19yr old crew member who had a crush on Scotty. Rafe's business was Great Alaskan Charters. Scotty had been Rafe's right-hand man and very good friend. Liv owned and ran the restaurant, The Pelican. Rafe was attracted to Liv and vise versa, but she was determined to keep her guard up.
Liv was a caring, kind person. She had a lot of secrets but she had to keep them to survive. Liv is very mental strong, stubborn and determined at times, but after all the twists and turns of this story she finally found love. I liked her character a lot. Rafe was mentally and physically strong. He cared about the people he knew and he cared about his crew. When Rafe had a gut feeling that things weren't right, he followed that feeling until he got answers. Through the twists and turns in the story, he healed from a tragic love and found a second love.
I loved the characters and plot. I recommend this book to anyone that likes this genre. I look forward to reading more from this author.
