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!

Maggie Toussaint pens a taunt romantic suspense with "Rough Waters." Rock MacKenzie arrives in Mossy Bog intent on finding one thing – the missing coins he discovered on a dive. He's convinced Jeanie Munro's ex-husband, Avery, might have taken them. Rock meets Jeanie with the intent of her leading him to Avery, but soon discovers Jeanie has no insights into her ex-husband's whereabouts. Rock learns he's attracted to Jeanie and feels bad when her house is burglarized.  Jeanie can't deny the attraction she feels for Rock, but her priority remains with her young children. In order to keep them safe, she sends them away and actively helps Rock seek the treasure he's looking or. Rock doesn't know what to make of his confusing clues, but when Jeanie's life is put in jeopardy, he's forced to come to terms with them in order to save her life.  Toussaint's writing is engaging, filled with several twists and turns leaving the reader anxious to find out what happens next. Rock is loyal, protective, and determined. Jeanie is a modern heroine. Not only is she gutsy and intitutive, but when it comes to her kids, she puts them first. Both the characters are strong, likable leads. The supporting cast embodies southern hospitality and there's no shortage of suspects. "Rough Waters" is a romantic suspense novel with several main stream love scenes. It's the 3rd book in the Mossy Bog series. The book stands alone in the series and embraces several elements of heightened suspense as the previous books did. I would definitely recommend it. "Rough Waters" is a page turner!

Danger, Distrust, and Attraction  Rough Waters, rife with cozy atmosphere, is set in the small town of Mossy Bog, where everyone knows everyone else’s business. Who couldn’t empathize with Jeanie Munro, an ordinary floral shop owner, who has her hands full raising two children alone, in the wake of her husband’s desertion? How could one not feel sorry for the larger-than-life Rock Mackenzie, at his wits end when his valuable coins go missing, and his  livelihood depends on their retrieval? And, to make him more appealing, he’s not only wounded, but is also a dog lover. When the two’s paths collide, they’re faced with the multiple challenges of danger, distrust, and attraction. Can they survive with bodies and hearts intact?  I heartily recommend Rough Waters, a cozy with not only atmosphere, but also engaging characters. Disclaimer: I was offered an ARC of Rough Waters for review purposes. I readily accepted, because I’ve always enjoyed the caliber of Maggie Toussaint’s books. Once again, she did not disappoint me!

Terror strikes close to home when Jeanie's house and flower shop are ransacked by an intruder. Are these incidents related to her n’er-do-well ex-spouse? The hot guy next door believes so. Rock has come to town to find the man. Gold coins from a sunken treasure are at stake, which Rock believes were stolen by Jeanie’s former husband. When he explains his own involvement to Jeanie, she is disappointed. Just when she’s starting to like her new neighbor, she can’t trust him. How could he withhold the truth from her? With a gutsy heroine and a former SEAL hero, readers can't help wanting this couple to find happiness. But first they have to conquer their pasts to face the enemy together and survive. This suspenseful story of passion, betrayal, and greed is a rollercoaster ride of surprises layered with emotion and peppered with danger.

Maggie Toussaint's Rough Waters is a romantic/adventure/mystery, well written and packing a lot of punch. Ms. Toussaint is a writer of expertise and imagination, who deftly establishes the characters, time, location, and potential conflict right away. She intrigues you with lively dialog and characters you believe in, as her plot unfolds one page at a time. Guided by her skills, we suspect we know where we're going but not how we're going to get there. Time to settle back for a good read. In the story, a young divorcee named Jeanie is harassed by an unknown villain who not only threatens her home and business, but her life and the lives of her two young children. Coming to the rescue is a former Navy SEAL, Rock. He has his own agenda, but finds himself attracted to the feisty woman, whose pink-tipped hair only peaks his interest. There are blown-up boats, treasure hunts, missing coins, and a lusty young couple ready for it all. So are we. There are many twists and turns in this adventure. It is to the author's credit that a storyline which might have been handled in a heavy-handed manner by a writer of lesser experience becomes, under Ms. Toussaint's guidance, a thrilling, entertaining, and fast-moving novel. I recommend it for that rainy or sun-shiny afternoon, when you want to get away from it all.
