Somehow, Christy Barritt always manages to build on the tension from her previous books. Doesn’t matter which series, she manages to pull me in every. single. time. And the Lantern Beach series is no exception. Cassidy and Ty are quickly becoming my favorite hero and heroine. And I really want to take a trip to the Outer Banks soon!
In My Opinion…
For four months, I’ve followed Cassidy through some harrowing situations. But this detective-in-hiding always manages to outsmart her opponents and solve the crime.
Now that Ty is aware of her past, Cassidy can sit back and be herself with the man she loves. But when he’s accused of a crime, Cassidy must solve the most important case of her life.
With Ty indisposed, Cassidy accepts the aid of his friends, allowing readers to get to know the supporting cast a bit better (one of my favorite things about Perilous Riptide).
Christy Barritt delivers another action-packed, intense read that kept me guessing until close to the end. Hang on tight readers, Lantern Beach is not free from crime yet (and the suspect list includes some people you may recognize).
I receive complimentary books from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including NetGalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
About the Book
Just when the current seems safer, an unseen danger emerges and threatens to destroy everything.
When Cassidy Livingston finds a journal hidden deep in the recesses of her ice cream truck, her curiosity kicks into high gear. Islanders suspect that Elsa, the journal’s owner, didn’t die accidentally. Her final entry indicates their suspicions might be correct and that what Elsa observed on her final night may have led to her demise.
Against the advice of Ty Chambers, her former Navy SEAL boyfriend, Cassidy taps into her detective skills and hunts for answers. But her search only leads to a skeletal body and trouble for both of them. As helplessness threatens to drown her, Cassidy is desperate to turn back time.
Can Cassidy find what she needs to navigate the perilous situation? Or will the riptide surrounding her threaten everyone and everything Cassidy loves?
