DARK WATER by Christy Barritt (Lantern Beach Blackout #1) Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

" . . .she'd feared this very moment."
Considering the questionable details surrounding the untimely death of her Navy SEAL husband, Elise Oliver had begun to look over her shoulder, having found the kind of evidence that someone would very likely kill to retrieve. Barely escaping a brutal home invasion, she fled to the only person who felt like a safe place; her husband's best friend and former Navy SEAL, Colton Locke.

Shocked to see Elise again, Colton Locke is terribly disturbed by the events that have driven her to seek refuge in Lantern Beach. Instinctively wanting to protect her, he and the others members of his elite security team sort through the evidence that Elise has risked her life to protect. It's time to make sure that Elise doesn't go anywhere on the island by herself, and Colton figures that he is just the man to stay by her side . . . . even when the waters darken.

Such a fun story to read!!!! 3.5 stars

BackCover Blurb:
Colton Locke can’t forget the black op that went terribly wrong. Desperate for a new start, he moves to Lantern Beach, North Carolina, and forms Blackout, a private security firm. Despite his hero status, he can’t erase the mistakes he’s made.

For the past year, Elise Oliver hasn’t been able to shake the feeling that there’s more to her husband’s death than she was told. When she finds a hidden box of his personal possessions, more questions—and suspicions—arise. The only person she trusts to help her is her husband’s best friend, Colton Locke.

Someone wants Elise dead. Is it because she knows too much? Or is it to keep her from finding the truth? The Blackout team must uncover dark secrets hiding beneath seemingly still waters. But those very secrets might just tear the team apart.
