Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler Blog Tour with Theresa's Review

You can predict the tides but not the changes they make. Gunnison Del Valle was the current in the tide that was about to change my life.

Crash one we met.
Crash two we fell in love.
Crash three changed our perfectly planned lives forever.


“C’mon GC!  Let’s go dance.”  I shake my head no.

As she begins to pout, I pull her into my lap as I take a seat on the bench.  “I think I’d rather just sit here with you.”  I place a strand of her blonde hair behind her ear causing her eyes to lock on mine.

“And what are we gonna do beside sit?” she says with a raised eyebrow.

“Talk.  Mar, I want to learn everything I can about you.”

Placing her arms around my neck, “Ask away,” she says.

“Favorite color?”

“Carolina Blue.  Yours?”

“Yellow.   Favorite movie?”

“The Notebook.  What’s you’re favorite type of music?” she asks.

“Country.”  Then she begins to giggle.  “What’s so funny?”

“You’re like a Yankee Cowboy aren’t ya?”  Stunned.  Never in my life has a girl called it like she sees it, and I love it.

“Yankee Cowboy, huh?”

“Yeah, I mean look at your country boy hat,” she says with a wink.  “I mean now all you need is a horse or two and you’re good.”  I can’t help but laugh.  She obviously doesn’t know what’s funny.  “Why you laughin’?”

Theresa's Review~
Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler is not your typical sports story nor was it what I expected when I began reading.  This story was so much more.  A story of love, loss and new beginnings that changed the lives of the characters, each in their own way.  Gunnison and Marleigh had a chance meeting on Spring Break in high school.  Living many states apart, they spent one amazing week together and planned for their future.  Little did they know that one week would change their lives forever.  After returning home, trying to juggle both school, sports and each other; GC and Marleigh struggled until she received news that was unexpected.  Making a the best decision at the time, Marleigh cuts all ties with GC without explanation and hopes to never run into him again.  GC has never gotten over Marleigh despite dating other girls, so when they run into each other at a party their junior year of college, he needs to find out what happened so he has closure.  What he finds out rocks his world, but how he handles it shows the reader his character.  I adored the characters of this book.

3.5 stars

Casey Peeler grew up in North Carolina and still lives there with her husband and daughter.

Growing up Casey wasn't an avid reader or writer, but after reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston during her senior year of high school, and multiple Nicholas Sparks' novels, she found a hidden love and appreciation for reading.  That love ignited the passion for writing several years later, and her writing style combines real life scenarios with morals and values teenagers need in their daily lives.

When Casey isn't writing, you can find her near a body of water listening to country music with a cold beverage and a great book.
