Book Description

Former Navy SEAL Rock Mackenzie wants his stolen gold sovereigns back. Time is running out on the loan repayment for his treasure hunt and unless he finds the coins, he will have to forfeit a family heirloom and all hope of finding the sunken ship carrying the gold.

Pink-haired florist Jeanie Munro learned responsibility the hard way after her ex-husband abandoned her and their two children. Once a wild child with a heart full of adventure, Jeanie finds herself falling for yet another bad boy dreamer—until thieves ransack her shop and home and Rock reveals her ex is to blame for their troubles.

Is he? Or did Rock bring danger to her doorstep? In return for his protection, Jeanie agrees to help find the missing coins. Will their thirst for adventure get them killed, or will they discover the true meaning of treasure before it’s too late?

My Review

 In Rough Waters, Jeanie Munro is a single mother raising her two children while trying to run her florist shop, The Muddy Rose, in the small coastal town of Mossy Bog. She has been disappointed in love due to her philandering, trouble-making ex-husband. Then Rock Mackenzie walks into her life. Should she dare trust him?

Rough Waters is a well-written romantic suspense. Great story with well developed characters. Plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader intrigued! Loved the romance between Rock and Jeanie and how it developed. Satisfying ending!

Great romantic suspense story! Flowers, romance, danger...what more could you ask for! Released in late August.
