Dead Tide by Leighann Dobbs

For three hundred years, the Blackmoore house has harbored a valuable secret ...

The Blackmoore sisters learn about this secret from the dying lips of the historian they hired to decipher their centuries old family journal. Too bad he never gets the chance to tell them exactly what he has uncovered...or where to find it.

But someone else knows where to find it, and they are prepared to take it from the Blackmoore’s no matter what the cost.

The sister’s are forced to put their newly discovered paranormal powers to the test as they fight off treasure stealing pirates in between figuring out clues from ghosts, decoding an old journal, finding their way through an underground maze and dodging quicksand, bottomless pits and whirlpools.

Oh, and did I mention the dark and mysterious stranger that keeps showing up--is he friend or foe?

Of course, their trusty cat, Belladonna is around to give them a helping hand when they need it ... and she has a secret of her own.

Will the Blackmoore sisters be able to figure out where the treasure is and get to it before the dead tide turns and hides it for another three hundred years?

3.49999 stars to Leighann Dobbs's Dead Tide, her third in the Blackmoore Systems Mystery series. Gosh, it was almost there this time. I'm really starting to enjoy this series and I've seen great improvement in the author's style, word choice and character exploration. At first, I felt the series was a little too simple, but it's jumped a few light years ahead in this book. I find myself thinking about the characters all day long, hoping they discover the secrets that keep carrying from book to book. Good job Ms. Dobbs! I'm fairly certain the next one will rise to a higher rating. Story The third installment in this series focused on the younger two Blackmoore sisters while continuing to explore their family history which undoubtedly must have some witch blood it in somewhere. (I blame Isaiah the pirate!) When modern-day pirates off the coast of Maine search for the treasure map to the ship that was lost at sea 300 years ago, the dirty little secret of the town sheriff finally reveals itself. The Blackmoore girls are close to translating the book they found in their attic, but the translator mysteriously dies before he can finish (nope, it's not a heart attack). Then so does his brother. (OK seriously, these girls just invite the trouble in, don't they?) By the end, the treasure is discovered. The pirates are captured. But what happens in between is a syrupy secret (especially that hush hush stuff with Cal Reed -- the super suave antiques dealer expert) because I think it's what will carry into books 4, 5 and 6! Strengths The Blackmoore sisters really start to become well-rounded characters. The land and background setting are deeply described. You really start to feel like you're on the beach watching the action happen. I want to visit the Sticks & Stones Shop. Weaknesses It's starting to transcend the mystery genre and cross into the romance genre. I'm not too interested in this direction so I hope it doesn't push the boundries too much more. Final Thoughts Get it. Read it in 3 hours. Enjoy the humor and dialogue. And tell me what you think!

I really enjoyed this book, a very fun read. We continue on with the search for treasure, if you haven't read the previous books I don't think that you will have any trouble reading this. We see the sisters developing some unknown abilities, strangers, a nasty sheriff that keeps cropping up and a cat who seems to know all, what more could you ask for? The sisters are all likeable characters (this book is from Celeste's view) and I had fun hunting treasure with them. I can't wait to start the next book.

Didn't like this one as much. Too much like the other two. Still a lot to be said for a clean read. No smut.

This was a pretty easy read. Not going to say it was a page turner, but it kept me interested enough to finish the book.
