Hidden Currents (Lantern Beach Mysteries #1) Reviews
HIDDEN CURRENTS is the first book in Ms. Barritt's newest series. Cassidy (Cady) is trying to appear to be a carefree beach bum but she can't quite master it, especially when a crime literally washes up on the beach--and the police arrested an innocent man and don't care to look further. Add a hunky ex-Navy SEAL, an ice-cream truck with personality plus, and a secret life, you have a winner.
I had my suspicions who might've done one of the crimes in this book, and suspicions about the other, but ...more
This had the makings of a good story...
But So. Many. Plot holes and character inconsistencies.
If she is this bad at fitting in on an island of tourists and can’t seem to come up with a decent, believable, halfway researched cover story, how on earth did she survive undercover with a gang??
Also: “... spent 2 years in the Middle East”. That’s not how deployments work, especially special ops deployments.
That said, I’m still going to read the next one...
Another great mystery by Christy Barritt! In this story, there are secrets upon secrets in the small town of Lantern Beach. Cassidy Livingston(alias of Detective Cady Matthews) is hiding until she can testify against a notorious gang that has put a million dollar bounty on her head. While trying to "lay low", crime comes to this sleepy tourist town. While Cassidy tries to avoid getting involved when a murder occurs, she can't resist when it looks like the local police are not up to the task of s ...more

Being the person, she is, and an officer of the law in another State of the USA, she gets involved with a murder on the beach. Intermingling with the locals and the tourist, she finds herself involved in a ...more
This new series of Christy Barritt is going to be GREAT. Whenever I hear there is a new book out by Christy Barritt I know I’ll enjoy it and not be able to put it down until I’ve finished it. WELL, this story keeps that thinking going.
From the very first page to the very end I was captivated and pulled into the lives of each of these characters.
Like the book synopsis states, “You can take the detective out of the investigation, but you can't take the investigator out of the detective.”

Wow, from the first page this book had my FULL attention!! The cover is good but doesn't do the story justice. MUCH more funny than mysterious, but there's both here.
LOVED how Cassidy met Ty, couldn't believe she faced off with him in the parking lot like that!
Also got SUCH a kick about how she's wasn't officially investigating on Lantern Beach, she was only biding her time while in hiding :) That ice cream truck plays songs at the weirdest moments, but it only makes the plot that much more amus ...more
