About the Book:
For her entire life, Lisa Garth has felt like a supporting character in the drama of life. The designation never bothered her—until now. Lantern Beach, where she’s settled and runs a popular restaurant, has boarded up for the season. The slower pace leaves her with too much time alone.

Braden Dillinger came to Lantern Beach to try to heal. The former Special Forces officer returned from battle with invisible scars and diminished hope. But his recovery is hampered by the fact that an unknown enemy is trying to kill him.

From the moment Lisa and Braden meet, danger ignites around them, and both are drawn into a web of intrigue that turns their lives upside down. As shadows creep in, will Lisa and Braden be able to shine a light on the peril around them? Or will the encroaching darkness turn their worst nightmares into reality?

My Rating & Thoughts:  🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟   (4 stars)

From previous Lantern Beach books we know that Lisa is the chef who owns the Crazy Chefette and enjoys coming up with unusual food combinations. Other than that we don’t know much more about her until this book. In this one we get to find out why she opened the restaurant and get to know some of her history.

While Ty and Cassie are out of town Braden is staying at their place and they have asked Lisa to help him out. Their first meeting does not go well and Lisa decides to stay as far away as possible. However then she sees another side of him and a connection begins to form. This connection is tested when mysterious things begin to happen around town.

Braden is suffering from PSTD and believes someone is trying to kill him but his memory is fuzzy. While trying to heal he is trying to figure out what is real and what is in his head. My heart ached for him. Lisa has a wonderful heart and I loved that she did not take everything at face value, but searched for answers. I was rooting for these two to be able to overcome the challenges in front of them and find happiness.

I enjoyed catching up with the residents of Lantern Beach and am looking forward to returning in future books.
