APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Set along the beautiful beaches of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, the first book in the Kill Devil Hills series offers up plenty of thrills minus any overt violence. California native Aspen Savich has just inherited her uncle’s beautiful beach house in Kill Devil Hills—which is a good thing, because she’s ready to start over. She catches the eye of Coast Guard veteran Bowie Davenport, who gets even more invested when someone starts stalking and threatening Aspen. We love how Kaylea Cross builds the suspense while letting Aspen and Bowie process their past traumas. Bonus treat: the details of Aspen’s retro vintage wardrobe.
fast paced, intriguing and engaging
