From afar, Sheriff Jackson Deveau has always loved Elle Drake, the youngest telepath of seven sisters. After a long time away she’s finally returning home to the small coastal village of Sea Haven. But someone has been following Elle, someone who doesn’t want her to make it back. And when Elle fails to arrive, her disappearance strikes fear in the hearts of everyone who loves her. Now it’s left to Jackson to uncover the mystery of Elle’s vanishing, and rescue her from an unseen danger. But Sea Haven is no longer safe for anyone, and it’ll take the powers of all the Drake sisters and their men to survive the coming storm.
OK, so I know Hidden Currents has been listed as my "currently reading" book for quiet some time now. I just wanted to take my time and truly savor it. Have you ever got really into a series that when the last book finally comes out you don't want it to end? Well, that's how it was for me. :)
Hidden Currents had to be the most emotionally trying book in the Drake Sisters series. To be completely honest the beginning of this book broke my heart, I don't remember ever crying so much while reading. The trauma that Elle went through for the beginning, an even after her rescue, really made me respect her strong will and courage. The struggles she went through to rebuild her life were so real. There were times when I expected her to just fall apart, but of course like any good romance she had a strong and supportive man to catch her. Jackson and Elle were perfect for one another, there was always so much emotion flowing between them. They needed each other to help heal from their terrifying experiences.
I think this was the first book, with the exception of Lover Beware, where all seven sisters made a repeating appearance. It's always enjoyable to see other characters after their happily-ever-after's. I feel that all the characters contributed to create a feeling of home, love, and family. The book just came together so perfectly, and the plot was very well planned. I love it when authors keep me guessing about whats to come. This is a wonderful story, it does pull at heartstrings, but its a worthwhile journey. MATURE CONTENT BE ADVISED
