Christy Barritt Bargain books March 29, 2023

Two new Christy Barritt books showed up in my search tonight, both pre-order, which is quite common for her new books. I’m definitely ready for more so the timing is good.

Fractured Lies (Lantern Beach Exposure Book 1)

Lantern Beach has seen its fair share of trouble. But the danger isn’t over yet . . .

As security agent Jonah Gray zeroes in on his current mission, he finds scientist Rachel Atwood in his crosshairs. Right before his foster brother died, he handed Jonah a slip of paper with the woman’s name on it and muttered the word “killed.” But the more Jonah gets to know Rachel, the more he’s uncertain if she’s a killer or a target.

Rachel Atwood hopes to leave trouble behind when she takes a new research position at a cosmetics company located on Lantern Beach. But things aren’t as idyllic on the coastal island as she’d assumed. Something fishy is going on at the waterfront lab, and Rachel is unsure who to trust.

When lies are exposed, Jonah and Rachel’s newfound trust is shattered. Can they pick up the fractured pieces of truth in time? Or will a killer’s devious plan destroy them both?


Shattered Whispers (Lantern Beach Exposure Book 2)

When theater owner Abby Mendez goes in after hours to work on the set for their newest production, she’s shocked to find a body behind stage. She’d just gone out to dinner with the dead man earlier that very night. Even worse, the killer is still in the building.

Blackout operative Hunter Bancroft is nearby when Abby screams, and he rushes to help her. He’s trying to build a new life for himself after the death of his wife, and Lantern Beach seems like the perfect place to do so–until he’s pulled into the chaos surrounding Abby. Yet he can’t walk away, not knowing the jeopardy she’s in.

As more dangerous incidents begin to occur, Hunter and Abby find themselves in the middle of the killer’s deadly game. But the person behind the violent acts remains a mystery–as do his motives. When the truth comes to light, will whispers from the past shatter the new starts both are desperately seeking?


Colleen Coble has a new series out too and book one is looking interesting. I’m excited to have another one to add to the new pile. I’ll put some of the old partially read books back on hold again for a while.

Edge of Dusk (An Annie Pederson Novel Book 1)

Even though secrets lie off the coast of Rock Harbor, the truth will set Annie Pederson free—if it doesn’t kill her first. Return to the beloved town of Rock Harbor in the first installment of a new series by bestselling suspense author Colleen Coble.

Nine-year-old Annie Pederson’s life changed the night her sister was kidnapped. The two had been outside playing on a dock, and Annie never forgave herself for her role in her sister’s disappearance. Twenty-four years later and now a law enforcement ranger, Annie is still searching for answers as she grieves a new loss: the death of her husband and parents in a boating accident.

But Annie and her eight-year-old daughter, Kylie, aren’t the only people in the town of Rock Harbor whose lives have been marred by tragedy. While managing the property around the Tremolo Resort and Marina she inherited, Annie discovers a dead body floating in the cold Superior surf and begins to work with the sheriff’s office to tie the death to a series of other mysterious reports in the area.

At the same time, her first love, Jon Dustan, returns after nine years away, reigniting the town’s memory of a cold case he’d been suspiciously linked to before he left to pursue his orthopedic residency. For the sake of her investigation and her heart, Annie tries to stay away. But avoiding Jon becomes impossible once Annie realizes she is being targeted by someone desperate to keep secrets from the past hidden.


There was another one that caught my eye but it was a thriller and I could tell by the opening pages it would be triggering and I’d never make it through. It’s a wise move to just leave it there.
