Review - Love at High Tide by Christi Barth

Darcy Trent is lucky Cooper Hudson is on hand to sweep her off her feet—literally—when she nearly drowns while swimming in the ocean. But life-saving aside, Mr. Perfect's timing stinks: Darcy's career is about to take her to the complete opposite side of the Atlantic. Still, a little summer loving with the tall, blond and sexy former cop is far too tempting to pass up.

When his plans to enter the Secret Service went south thanks to a bum knee, Coop retreated to the family beach house to mull his future. Romance is the last thing on his mind, until he fishes a curvy brunette out of the sea. Now, spending time in Darcy's arms seems like the ideal distraction, even if it is just for a week.

But with Darcy's departure date fast approaching and their careers on the line, can they realize in time that their beach fling might become the real thing?

~ Cassy's Review ~

**I was asked to read this ARC for an honest review**

This book is what I would call a quick "beach read". It's a quickie love story with a little bit of humor and a little bit of mystery thrown in.

Darcy Trent is a cultural anthropologist on vacation after finishing her PhD while spending months in Africa. She must decide in 3 days whether or not she will take the job of a lifetime. A job she's not really even sure she wants. The decision is made more complicated when she meets Cooper Hudson. He's an ex-cop who just happens to be in the right place at the right time and saves her from drowning. Sparks fly and they have a to decide if this romance will be just a fling or if it's worth pursuing.

In the midst of this blooming romance, Trina, Darcy's best friend, decides to embark on a new career adventure as a private detective. Trina is a care-free spirit who changes careers like she changes her shoes. With training consisting of reading a few books, she is convince that a man on the beach is up to no good and decides to put her "skills" to use as practice while dragging Darcy along for the ride. When the girls get themselves over their heads, Cooper and his cousin, Brad may need to use their own skills as cops to get the girls out of trouble.

Like, I said, this book was a quick read. I really enjoyed Trina's personality and would like to read more about her. It would be nice to see if she continues on with her new "career". I'd like to see if she finds lover herself and read more on Cooper and Darcy. I'm rating this book 4/5 stars.
