First of all, this may be my favorite cover (so far) in Christy Barritt’s Lantern Beach series. And just when Cassidy and Ty were making progress…
In My Opinion
A boat with a bloody cloth washes up in Lantern Beach as does Ty’s ex-fiancee, leaving Cassidy on her own for this mystery. Which is a good thing, right? After all, she’s supposed to be laid back, focused only on selling her ice cream around the island.
I love the concept of Barritt’s Lantern Beach series. And Cassidy’s desire for justice is part of her DNA—that’s part of what makes her so likable.
As usual, there are plenty of questions and distractions for Cassidy. She’s slowly giving up the pretense of not knowing what she’s doing (around Ty, anyway).
Corrupt law enforcement, missing people, questions about the raft (and questions about Ty and his relationship with his ex), and more make this another fast read from Barritt, one I didn’t want to put down.
There are still plenty of questions to answer. I’m waiting for the time Cassidy has to reveal to Ty (and hopefully Mac) exactly who she is. If I had to guess, that should start to unravel in the next two or three books. And there is the question of what happened to her best friend. Watching (or reading) it all play out is sure to be a thoroughly enjoyable adventure.

And here’s that cover I was talking about…
About the Book
A storm is brewing hundreds of miles away, but its effects are devastating even from afar.
Laid-back and light: that’s Cassidy Livingston’s new motto. But when a makeshift boat with a bloody cloth inside washes ashore near her oceanfront home, her detective instincts shift into gear . . . again.
Seeking clues isn’t the only thing on her mind-romance is heating up with next-door neighbor and former Navy SEAL Ty Chambers as well. Her heart wants the love and stability she’s longed for her entire life. But her hidden identity only leads to a tidal wave of turbulence.
As more answers emerge about the boat, the danger around her rises, creating a treacherous swell that threatens to reveal her past. Can Cassidy mind her own business, or will the storm surge of violence and corruption that has washed ashore on Lantern Beach leave her life in wreckage?
