Publisher's Summary

A devastating hurricane brings insurance investigator Ashley Walker back to Provincetown, the last place she wants to be. Not only must she deal with the dangerous consequences of the natural disaster, she has to fight her soul-shattering need for the woman she left behind. While Reese Conlon and Tory King deal with the challenges of a community in turmoil, a new threat emerges that proves to be even more deadly than the ravaging storm. A silent killer stalks the night, drawing ever closer to the one woman he believes to be his. Soon, no woman is safe, including Tory. The sixth in the Lambda Literary Award-winning Provincetown Tales.

Not As Good As The Others

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, I love Nicol Zanzarella's narration.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The stalker/killer would have been someone different

Which character – as performed by Nicol Zanzarella – was your favorite?

Allie Tremont, without a doubt. Nicol Zanzarella does an amazing job with her voice.

Did Returning Tides inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

I was a little disappointed in this installment of the Provincetown tales. Too predictable and I had trouble with who the stalker/killer turned out to be. Wasn't much of a surprise there. I also thought that a little more time could have been spent on Allie and Ash. Especially when you consider the way Ash left Allie. Over all good just not as good as the others.

Radclyffe continues to amazes with her P-Town Tell

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

.Yes, the continuing tells of the small town of P-Town are so exciting. You have Tory and Reese who is trying to solve the murder of an FBI agent in her town without the help of the FBI who are being jerks about helping out. And she has the help of Carter Wayne who has joined the P-town police. So Carter and Rita are back. So is Carolina and Bree. And Ashley and Alley seem to final work things out but it takes them a lot of work to do it. And some hot bedroom scenes. Which is Radclyffe's bread and butter highlights of all her books. But there is also lots of plot and tenderness, and love. And a nice mystery throw in to keep you guess until the end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Carter Wayne is my favor character in this behind Reese of coarse. It's hard to beat Tory and Reese out for favorite. That just goes without saying but I like the depth Radclyffe gave Carter in this book along with Ashley Walker. Both women were given a lot of depth and rounded out in this book.

Have you listened to any of Nicol Zanzarella’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have listen to all the P-Town tells that she has recorded so far and I love them. The way she does the voices and accents of the character is super awesome. She is great and I can't wait to hear her on Sheltering Dunes the next book in the series which I just purchase and haven't listened to yet,

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wish I had the time to just sit and listen to it in one sitting but as it is I don't have the time. I listen to audio book just before I go to sleep at night. And back the tape up to were I fell a sleep the night before and then listen from there. I do get through the whole book that way. But I also normally buy books that I have already read. I just like hearing the story again. I enjoy Radclyffe the most,

Any additional comments?

This is one of the best of the P-town series and as you listen you grow to love the woman in the story but please start with book one in the series Safe Harbor..

Very suspenseful!

Out of the whole Provincetown series, this was the most thrilling. I was listening to this on a 4 hour flight and I that was the fastest flight of my life. It just completely sucked me in the story. Yes it has all the love scene that one would expect from Radclyffe but it also has a different flow than the rest of the other Ptown books. And also by this point in the series, Radclyffe has made the readers so invested in all of the characters that if anything bad happens to one of them, it's like a knife to the Heart. This was my favorite book out of the whole series minus Safe Harbor.

It's Radclyffe...What's Not to Like

What did you love best about Returning Tides?

Women falling in love!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't have a favorite. The author has a way of making the leading couples heroines.

What about Nicol Zanzarella’s performance did you like?

Listening to Nicol is effortless. She doesn't take anything away from the book, in fact, she gives it life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. If I had the time, I would listen to the entire series in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

For me, these books equate to the Harlequin romance novels women read when I was growing up. Provides a great escape from the mundane.

uggg

just skip it, yes skip it. There is no plot too many random characters picking up women. Everyone is GAY, which is ridiculous because in the real world it is the opposite.

Still too much filler of ‘erotica’

The quick alteration of violent scenes with ‘erotica’ and also melodrama of yes no maybe between Allie and Ashley made this not so good.Also, the attentive listener to story knows who the stalker/killer is and how it’s possible that this is really him so far ahead of the god characters, that it’s exasperating how often the author allows the female characters to be left alone and vulnerable. Too stressful a listen to be enjoyable.

Good As Usual

Radclyffe never fails with her storylines. I've listened to the last two audibles. Now, I'll have to start from the beginning of the series. I really liked the characters. Reece is my favorite.

drama returns - major book in Provincetown Tales

This book in the Provicetown tale is full of dramatic evens and is as much a police crime drama as a romance, with two felons at large. Reese back from Iraq, gets a grip on things, and is more balanced, she saves the day in the end (as we should expect by now), a old relationship and heartbreak is resolved and is a great romance story. A lot in this one reminds me of one of the best Honor services novels, so 5 stars.

thriller

pure radclyffe, mixing a taught stalker suspense filled thriller, with lgbt romance, and a strongly growing cast of characters, heart in mouth as I hoped it was none of our towns ladies stabbed, and a 4am finish as I couldn't stop listening.

Not what I expected

The opening paragraphs are a very graphic description of sexual arousal. Not what I thought I was buying. Put me off listening to the rest of the book so a waste of money.
