Shifting Sands by Kathi Oram Peterson is a love story involving a soon-to-be marine biologist and a sand pounder. Gloryanna Griffin is diving along with another student and her mentor to help save the ocean and earn a grant for a master’s degree. When Gloryanna ventures alone a little too far, just below a vortex, she discovers that something is wrong with her tank and realizes that she won't stand a chance against the vortex that just caught her. Awake, Gloryanna finds herself on a beach with a dog and a man next to her. She learns that the man who rescued her had saved many other people from certain death, that he isn't an ordinary man, and that of all the people he saved she is the only one who can see him. Her rescuer, Jonathan Dawson, knows that the woman he just saved wasn't there by chance and that they met for a purpose.

I’m shamelessly addicted to the romantic suspense genre because of novels just like Shifting Sands by Kathi Oram Peterson. I was immediately sucked into this astonishing book, which is a gripping, richly atmospheric, and thoroughly enjoyable page-turner that left me breathless. It contains so many surprising, interesting facts combined with fiction, and irresistible protagonists that will convince you to make room for them in your heart. This is an absorbing read that I highly recommend. Romantic suspense fans and anyone who likes historical fiction will enjoy it and be rewarded.
