Tipping Point (Lantern Beach Mayday)

Tipping Point 

(Lantern Beach Mayday) 

September 8, 2021

by Christy Barritt  (Author)

Awakening in a boat surrounded by nothing but water, a yachtie has no doubt someone wants her dead.

Kenzie Anderson is determined not to let anyone scare her away from completing the charter season—even with the threats on her life. The only person she can trust is Captain Jimmy James Gamble, despite their tumultuous relationship.

Kenzie and Jimmy James both suspect turbulent currents rush beneath the tranquil surface aboard the luxury yacht Almost Paradise. Secrets seem to abound, each one increasing the tension aboard the boat.

As answers rise to the surface, neither Kenzie nor Jimmy James is prepared for what they find. Have they both reached their tipping points? Their adversaries want nothing more than to make Kenzie disappear . . . forever. It may be too late for a mayday call.

My thoughts: this is the third book in a new series by ms. Barritt. I have not read the first two books in the series yet so I felt like I kind of came into the story in the middle. However, whatever I missed might or might not have been important to the story, but it still was a good read. Like a luxury yacht, Rich patrons, and a mystery at sea. The hero and heroin were not unlikely pair but miss Barrett made it work. If you like romantic suspense you will like tipping point and probably the first two books in the series as well. I was given a copy free and all opinions are my own.

Go Home! By Jenna V Hilton

While on a walk, I saw what looked like an Australian shepherd border collie mix. He had a collar, but no leash and he was alone. He was happily trotting down the road, tongue hanging out, then he saw me. And he started slowly tiptoeing past with his head bowed, like I couldn't see him if he moved at a glacier pace.

I know how it feels to lose a dog, even temporarily. So I told him, "go home." And he stopped, and stared at me, then slowly turned around and went the right direction, then he did a u turn around a house and ran into me again. He was a strange dog, so I didn't want to get too close, but I didn't let him see my apprehension. I kept telling him to go home, very firmly. And he'd start to walk that way, then he turn around and give me a piece of his mind.

The dog's still out there, and I'm praying he makes it home, but my walk was cut short by the story of the prodigal son.

How many times did that boy waffle between, "I wanna go home" and, "I can't go home"? He was so ashamed of himself, he was sure he could never be forgiven. But he was. He was welcomed home with open arms and a party! There might be people out there who accepted Christ as their Savior, and meant it with all their heart, but never grew, never stopped what they were doing, and over time they became self aware, and disgusted at themselves, and feel they are too far gone, that they've lost their salvation. But that's not possible. A child of God is always a child of God. That title can't be taken away. Repentance is needed, but God will always forgive his children.

Dear God, thank you for being patient and forgiving. Help us to remember that you will always love us. In Jesus name, amen
