Elizabeth Goddard’s Distress Signal Explosions, murder, arson, attempted murder at sea and on land, cut diving gear breathing lines, illegal drugs, stolen secrets, a disappearance, kidnapping, intrigue plus an unpredictable plot make for an exciting read. Distress Signal has all of this plus more!! The main characters are two bold, problem solving, well developed characters with undeniable chemistry between them. Cora Strand is shipwreck archaeologist who has accepted her dream job on board the research vessel. She is trying to prove her worth to her sisters and family. She never suspected her coworkers were anything other than honest, hard workers. She is in for a surprise when she discovers her life is in danger. But why? What did she see that she can’t recall to put her in this position? Kirk Higgins is an undercover NCIS agent and Cora’s ex-boyfriend. He has come aboard the research vessel as a sea hand. He ends up saving her life when her diving gear line gets cut. She almost drown. Then he saves her life when the research vessel explodes. What are they up against?? Who can be trusted? Can Cora trust Kirk? It is a real page!! The tension is thick with plenty of suspense great chills, thrills with unexpected twists. The story is so well written you will feel as if you are right there in the midst of the action. A Highly Recommended read!!! I volunteered to read Distress Signal. Thanks to the author for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

Distress Signal was a very intense story! It was hard to know who to trust in this fast-paced tale of danger and intrigue. If you are a fan of suspense, as well as second chance love stories, this book is a good choice. Kirk and Cora blew their chance at a relationship years earlier and they both bear the emotional scars from what happened in the past. I enjoyed trying to determine who were the bad guys and who were the good guys in this novel! Great action sequences abounded in this story, as well. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Distress Signal is the 3rd installment of the Coldwater Bay Intrigue series by Elizabeth Goddard. Like the first 2 books, this one doesn't disappoint. It starts off with shipwreck archeologist Cora Strand waking up to find that she has been rescued by undercover NCIS agent Kirk Higgins when an attempt on her life has been made. They have a history and a lot of unresolved feelings between them, but first they must figure out why someone is after Cora and who that someone is. This story certainly has it all. The moment I picked this book up, I couldn't put it down! Plan on reading it one sitting. It's an intense action-packed mystery with a dash of romance! Each will have to not live in the past so they can survive the present. Will Cora remember what happened to her right before Kirk found her? Will Kirk keep her alive while finding answers that he has been searching for on his own? Will they finally stop letting the past dictate what they both want? Read the book and find out! It's Christian suspense at it's best. It will be a wild ride that you will be so happy you got on!

This one just kept going! Such suspense and mystery it had me second guessing who was the culprit. I adore books like this that are page turners and keep me on the edge of my seat. This author never fails to deliver! Another bookshelf keeper.

This is the third installment in the Coldwater Bay Intrigue series, but it's easily a stand alone book in my opinion. For me, this was a spectacular read! From the first page I was drawn in and captivated until the last page was turned.Once I got started, I didn't want to put it down. So for that to me, I classified it as a one sitting read. Cora Strand is a young woman who accepted a job 2 months ago as a shipwreck archaeologist on board the research vessel Sea Dragon. Being a member of the science team is her dream job. She has a passion for the sea and what she can find and learn from ships that have gone down. Some do this for treasure hunting, but for her the treasure is in finding and researching history. Kirk Higgins was hired on the Sea Dragon as part of the dive team. With his impressive archaeological credentials, diving skills, and having served in the Navy getting the job was not the problem, but keeping his real purpose for being there a secret might be. He's looking for answers to the disappearance of his childhood friend, Drake Jackson. Both are strong characters that will pull on your heart strings. I liked that Cora has a strong faith and isn't afraid to lean on God for guidance for strength and guidance. Kirk has to face the fact that he has always had feelings for Cora and that he had literally pushed her away years ago. He has a tough exterior, but also a softer side. This book has elements of faith, trust issues, crisis of faith, romantic tension, spine tingling suspense, unexpected twists, turmoil, and love. It's a book I would recommend to anyone who loves suspense. *I received this book from the author. I was not expected to write a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love books that happen on the water! This book has a lot of action and a lot of twists and turns. You never knew who was a good guy and who was the bad guy! It really kept you guessing, which for me meant I couldn't put it down! I've really enjoyed this series and the characters. Every book has been quite different, which is a big plus for me. Although the two main characters (Kirk and Cora) had a previous relationship, it's been awhile so when they end up on the same research ship, they have to figure out how to be on a ship together which is uncomfortable for them. However, incidents begin happening that put Cora's life in danger and thank goodness Kirk is there to save her! He's an undercover NCIS agent but Cora doesn't know that! Things begin to spiral out of control and soon, Kirk and Cora don't know who to trust and where to turn for safety. They really don't want to trust each other but now it's a matter of survival! I think readers will love this book, the characters and the story! Step into the world of shipwreck archeology! Who knew there was such a thing? I didn't but it's fantastic! ***I received this book from the author but was not required to leave a review. These opinions are my own.

This is a thrilling romantic suspense novel! I love both of the main characters! Kirk and Cora have come back into each others’ lives while they each carry baggage from how things ended before. They both have deep insecurities that they need to work through. I enjoyed reading their journeys and found it encouraging that they were both praying for God’s help. The plot was filled with plenty of twists and heart-pounding action. There were a lot of secondary characters. One of the things that kept me guessing along with Kirk and Cora was the question of who were the good guys and who weren’t I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I have chosen to write this review to express my personal opinion.

Distress Signal ( Coldwater Bay Intrigue ) By: Elizabeth Goddard Distress Signal is a Coldwater Bay Intrigue. This is a Love Inspired Suspense book that has action , suspense, mystery, second chances, and a riveting Inspirational romance. The author drew me in right at the start. This is one of those page turners that when you start you do not want to put it down. It will have you on the edge of your seat trying to read faster to see what is going to happen next. I caught myself holding my breath several times. This is Archeologist Cora and NCIS Agent Kirk’s story. Cora is in danger and Kirk her ex comes to her rescue. Can he keep both of them safe? They cannot trust anyone. Action on top of action and safe no where. The author does a great job of keeping you guessing till the end.
