Book Review: Rough Waters (A Mossy Bog Book Book 3)

Rough Waters (A Mossy Bog Book Book 3)

by Maggie Toussaint

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?

Family matters. That’s the underlying theme I found in Rough Waters. Jeanie, the pink-haired florist, isn’t the ditz her hair would suggest. She’s smart and fiercely protective of her children, but her self-confidence has suffered a serious blow. Rock, ex-SEAL and dive boat captain, comes to Mossy Bog to search for treasure stolen from him while he recovers from injuries. He doesn’t know who to trust, but Jeanie’s former husband is high on his bad list, which makes her a suspect too. The investigation leads to danger, dead ends (literally), and surprises, and I had a hard time putting the book down. A range of well-drawn secondary characters added interest. I recommend Rough Waters and can’t wait until the next in the Mossy Bog series comes out. Write on, Ms. Toussaint!
