Don’t you hate it when a series ends and you have to say goodbye to those fictional friends who have been part of your life for a time? Well, Christy Barritt gives fans something to rejoice about. Her new Lantern Beach Romantic Suspense means we get to spend time on that little island a bit longer (but the focus shifts from Ty and Cassidy to their group of friends. And for those of you who have no idea who Cassidy and Ty are or anything about Lantern Beach, then this is a great introduction.
IN MY OPINION…
I am thrilled that I get to hang out on Christy Barritt’s Lantern Beach a little bit longer. Over the course of the six book Lantern Beach Mysteries, Cassidy, Ty, and the rest of the gang have become like friends. And in Tides of Deception, Barritt gives readers a peek into the lives of Austin and Skye.
Austin fell in love with Skye the moment he met her, but the exotic beauty who runs the fruit stand has some walls built around her. Instead, he spends his time with her as a friend—one she can always count on to help her when she’s in a bind.
When someone from Skye’s past shows up, her carefully rebuilt world shifts on its foundation. Now Skye must decide whether to run and start again or fight for what she wants.
Cassidy and Ty make appearances (yay!), but this story is all about Austin and Skye. True to Barritt’s style, the stakes are high, the action intense, the suspense nail-biting, and the romance sigh-worthy.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Change has come to Lantern Beach: a new police chief, a new season, and . . . a new romance?
Austin Brooks has loved Skye Lavinia from the moment they met, but the walls she keeps around her seem impenetrable. Skye knows Austin is the best thing to ever happen to her. Yet she also knows that if he learns the truth about her past, he’d be a fool not to run.
A chance encounter brings secrets bubbling to the surface, and danger soon follows. Are the life-threatening events plaguing them really accidents . . . or is someone trying to send a deadly message?
With the tides on Lantern Beach come deception and lies. One question remains—who will be swept away as the water shifts? And will it bring the end for Austin and Skye, or merely the beginning?
