Tide Ever Rising by Mandi Tucker Slack

Tide Ever Rising is the story of two sisters - Kaydence (or Kadie) and Maysha Reynolds, quite different from each other, but very much devoted to one another. Kadie is in a relationship with Robert Greenly, a stiff, formal man who you really don't get too endeared with from the beginning of the story and aren't quite sure why Kadie would be engaged to a man who appears to care more about his mother than he does her.

Kadie is a junior high history teacher in Utah who is spending the last few weeks of break exploring ghost towns with her reluctant sister, when she accidently falls upon a hidden journal along with some other artifacts from a young woman that used to live in the fallen-down house many years ago. The artifacts lead Kadie to a strong desire to return them to their rightful owner and thus propels her on a journey to return the heirlooms. What she never expected was to find the older woman near death and under the care of her handsome, and oh, so single grandson, Logan Mathews who is almost as eager as she is to unravel the mystery revealed from the old journal's pages, putting not only themselves in danger, but anyone else who would dare to unearth it's secret.

Mandi Slack grew up in Orangeville, Utah, where her father worked as a coal miner for eighteen years. In 1987 the coal mines shut down for a time and her father joined the US Army. They were stationed in Hanau, Germany, and she had the opportunity to explore Europe. Mandi's family returned to Utah in 1992, and they settled in Orangeville, Utah, where she attended and completed high school. She then attended the College of Utah, where she studied Geology.

Eventually Mandi changed her major and moved on to Utah State University where she completed a degree in special education. She then married her best friend, Charles Slack. They have three children, two dogs and a lizard (sometimes several lizards). Their family loves to spend time together, and one of their favorite things to do is rock hound and camp. Her house is littered with rocks and minerals. Mandi loves the outdoors, and she enjoys writing suspenseful novels and short stories.
