The tide is high, and so is the danger on Lantern Beach. Still in hiding after infiltrating a dangerous gang, Cassidy Livingston just has to make it a few more months before she can testify at trial and resume her old life. But trouble keeps finding her, and Cassidy is pulled into a local investigation after a man mysteriously disappears from the island she now calls home. A recurring nightmare from her time undercover only muddies things, as does a visit from the parents of her handsome ex-Navy SEAL neighbor. When a friend's life is threatened, Cassidy must make choices that put her on the verge of blowing her cover. With a flood watch on her emotions and her life in a tangle, will Cassidy find the truth? Or will her past finally drown her?

My thoughts:  FLOOD WATCH is the second book in this series, but it does stand alone. I liked the beginning romance between Ty and Cassidy, and his mother was a nice touch. 

I was a little confused by some things - Ryan hates liars, but he's apparently cheating on Cassidy and Ty hates liars and yet he does to his own family. A bit inconsistent there. It does add some funny and heart stopping moments. 

Still, Ms. Barritt writes quirky, funny, spell-binding cozy mysteries and romantic suspense and I greatly enjoyed it. I couldn't put it down, avoiding my own work to read this from cover-to-cover. 

If you like romantic suspense, you have to read Christy Barritt. She is an author not to be missed. I've read most of her books. 

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own. 

I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series: Dangerous Waters.
