This was a short fun read and can be easily read in an evening. It takes place at the beach in an accidental meeting when she needs saving and they find themselves attracted to one another. Good banter and interaction between Cooper and Darcy. I also like Trina her best friend and her qhest to find the right job. Becoming a PI is the latest and it lands them in hot water. Good adventure and good outcome.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Oh my gosh... Love at High Tide is so much more than I bargained for. Not only do you get the humor and sex you usually get from Christi Barth, you also get a little mini-mystery. Picking up this book immediately had me feeling like I was in my own little comfort zone. It was like drinking hot chocolate on a cold winter's day. I immediately started smiling and was reminded why I love Christi so much.
Christi does a wonderful job of telling a story. She has hot sexy moments, without them being too graphic. The characters are all people you can love. I can't help but wonder if there's going to be a follow- up book. I mean Darcy's best friend Trina is quirky and funny.. She’s actually rather enduring as long as you don't have to be around her all the time. Darcy and Trina balance each other since Darcy is so serious all the time. Cooper is to die for... He’s lost his way career wise and is just hanging out at his family’s beach house, wishing he could avoid them. Then there's Brad, Cooper's cousin. He doesn't have as big a part in the book as Trina does but there's potential with him.
Love at High Tide is being touted as a summer beach read. That's all fine and dandy... However, I would only recommend reading this at the beach if you have an umbrella to shield yourself from the sun. Because once you start reading this book you aren't going to want to put it down. And that, could lead to some SERIOUS sunburn.
This is a really good read. And if you aren't familiar with Christi, a good place to start. It's different from her other books, in that you have two best friends being ameuther sleuths, putting themselves in danger and not even realizing it. Be prepared to laugh, smile, and fall in love.

Love at High Tide by Christi Barth is another one of her fabulous contemporary romances. I have read quite a few of Christi’s books, and she continues to amaze me how she can keep producing such fun books to read. Love at High Tide is a novella, but a perfect read either on the beach or in your air-conditioned house getting away form the extreme heat. Either way, this is a fun perfect read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Darcy Trent is our heroine, and I thorough liked her from the start. Darcy is not only beautiful, nice, loyal and a great friend, but she is also very smart, having just completed her Phd. Darcy is on vacation with her best friend, Trina, relaxing on the beach in Ocean City, Maryland. Darcy, having spent a few years in the African desert, has a few days to make a decision to accept a wonderful career opportunity, but it will force her to go back to Africa for a few more years. She loves the beach, the water, and truly does not want accept the offer; however, she has not other job opportunities at this time.
While Darcy relaxes and enjoys the beach, she finds herself almost drowning, but saved by a handsome blond hunk, who is truly our hero, Cooper (Coop) Hudson. Coop is also on the beach trying to come to terms with returning to his job as a detective, currently on leave due to the loss of his partner. I have to say, I loved Coop right from the start. He was not only a hunk, but the kind of guy any mother would want for their daughter. He was awesome throughout. That is not to say Darcy wasn’t great either. They made such a great couple, and we impatiently waited for them to have sex. Barth did a great job teasing us early on, as we knew they both had the hots for each other. But so many times they were interrupted by mostly Trina and her crazy antics. I did like Trina, she was funny, not to mention her and Darcy were very close friends. But Trina was practicing to be a private eye, and I thought her antics trying to solve a mystery (yes there is a mystery in this wonderful romance story), was a bit too much & kind of got on my nerves. Both Trina and Darcy were getting themselves in trouble constantly trying snoop on someone they suspected was doing something illegal. Despite Coop telling them to be careful, Trina kept going and putting herself and Darcy in danger.
Perhaps I loved the relationship between Darcy and Coop, I didn’t want Trina constantly pulling her away. Oh well, it was an interesting mystery. When Coop and Darcy finally have steamy sex, it was all worth it though. Their chemistry was hot, and they made such a wonderful couple. I think I have said that a few times. There are other mysteries that have to be resolved as your read the story. Will Darcy take the job in Africa? Will Coop be able to go back to being a Detective? What happens when they find out the truth about the mystery person? Will Coop and Darcy call it a fling or will they stay together? Read this book to find out.
Rather then tell you more about the mystery, let me just say the romance between Darcy and Coop makes this a must and fun read. This is not erotica, but a perfect contemporary romance with some mystery, and hot steamy sex. Christi Barth has once again created a wonderful pure romance to fully enjoy. I love Christi’s Aisle Bound series, and I so would love to see her do more with Coop and Darcy.

Love at High Tide is like a trip to the beach--light, frothy, fun, and over too soon!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Coop and Darcy's story was an enjoyable way to spend a lazy summer day. I honestly probably would have only given this book three stars if it hadn't been for two things, though. One: the location, Ocean City, Maryland, is one of my favorite places to vacation. Christi Barth threw in a lot of local references that alone made the book twice as fun to read for someone who's been there(sunsets at Fager's Island! Fractured Prune doughnuts! All that was missing was Fisher's Popcorn). Two: this book mentions my all-time favorite television show, Scarecrow and Mrs. King. I loved that show more than was probably healthy, so it was just too funny to see Darcy's friend Trina use it as the reason for her latest career choice.
Though entertaining, this book is definitely light on substance, however. At times Trina's antics overshadowed Darcy and Cooper's romance, and things are resolved fairly quickly and painlessly at the end. Still, I had a lot of fun with this book. For what it is--a light beach read--it definitely delivered.

Love at High Tide by Christi Barth is the perfect start to your summer reading list. What better way to start off your beach reads than with a cute, fun and entertaining story that takes place on the beach? Perfect!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Darcy Trent is enjoying some R&R with her BFF on the beach in Ocean City, Md. She has a lot on her plate and has a big decision to make regarding her career and whether to use all of her schooling and degrees studying cultures and tribes in Africa, or to find a way to let her overachieving parents down gently and choose another path. Luckily, Trina, her best friend, is on her new career path…which this month is self-training to become a private investigator. If anything it will be the welcomed distraction Darcy needs. Another welcomed distraction is the gorgeous, hunky stranger who rescues her from a near drowning disaster in the ocean. Looks like this may end up being the perfect hot and steamy beach vacation.
Trying to shake off the rejection from the secret service, thanks to his injured knee, Cooper Hudson is here at his family’s beach house looking to make heads or tails of his future in law enforcement. He’s not ready to go back to his old department just yet with the sting of rejection still lingering. Some time in the sand sounds just about perfect and the beautiful brunette he pulls out of the surf draws him in with a sudden attraction he knows he needs to investigate further. But with his meddling family always calling to check up on him, he hopes he will be able to get to know her without his phone ruining the moment. When his cousin, Brad, decides to show up and stay for a few days, he just about loses his cool until he realizes that Darcy’s friend and his cousin seem to be hitting it off as well. Could the fates finally be on his side?
This story was so fun and entertaining, I couldn’t put it down! Darcy and Trina are hilarious together…going off on an amateur private investigating sting and just being entertaining gals. From wigs to Russian mobsters, these two were just too much fun. Cooper is delish. He is the ultimate rule following, knight in shining armor and has a heart of gold. He is a hero any gal would love. Darcy and Cooper together are sizzling. They know their time is limited, being it a beach fling, and they don’t waste time with a lot of fluff. Their sexy banter back and forth was done really, really well. I was so pleased with how much was packed into a story of 183 pages….really well done! It had action, humor, tugged on the heartstrings and had plenty of heat! Oh, and I’m curious to see if we see more of Trina and Brad in the future because I think they would make a fantastic couple!
Thank you, Christi, for a great kick-off to beach read season!

Darcy Trent, PhD is a very practical girl,
“No Thongs for her. Darcy believed at least dinner and drinks were required before anyone saw her naked butt.”
Cooper Hudson can be TRUSTED to ensure Darcy has a memorable vacation.
“You’re in the presence of a certified Eagle Scout.”
Now is the time when many readers are searching for pool/beach reads. This is the perfect summer read. It has sun, sand, sexy men mixed with some mild intrigue; light and entertaining. I was thrilled, yet again, by this author. She wrote an incredible story filled with wonderful characters, humorous dialogue, and chemistry. The best part was that kept the romance natural, allowing thing to progress without drama.
