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.
It held my attention to the end! One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.

I enjoyed this book enough to get the rest in the series. Loved the writing, the characters, and the setting. Great blend of adventure, who-dunnit, nail-biting excitement, treasure-hunting, romance, and friendship. Book 2 in this series still takes place mainly in Mossy Bog, but features a different central character than the first book. This story focuses on Jeannie Munro, a single mom struggling to balance life one year out from a divorce, with two young children and a fledgling flower business.
Jeannie and Rock "meet cute" when she delivers a large flower arrangement to his home and her young son dials because the delivery takes too long. Jeannie is attracted to Rock, but still scarred by the divorce. While the divorce may have temporarily broken her, one year later she's stronger in the broken places and refuses to go back to being the woman who lives life passively and waits for someone else to take care of her. Besides, her kids and her business are her priority these days.
Rock pretends to be a guy looking for a place to start over, but he's really in town to hunt treasure - missing treasure that he think Jeannie may know about, or even have in her possession. They must join forces to figure out who really does have the treasure, all the while fighting a growing attraction to each other. This book is billed as romantic suspense. I have to say I enjoyed this story waaaay more than I expected to. The dialogue between Jeannie and her bff about Rock was very realistic.
The setting was well-detailed, the characters well-executed, the plot really did make me bite my nails and the ending was very satisfying. Now I have to go read the first one in the series to get caught up. If you like romantic suspense, give this a try. In the interests of full disclosure, I was given an ARC of this book by the author, with the understanding I would give an honest review. Maggie Toussaint pens a taunt romantic suspense with "Rough Waters. 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.
What is Kobo Super Points?
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. It's the 3rd book in the Mossy Bog series.
Muddy Waters (Mossy Bog, book 1) by Maggie Toussaint
The book stands alone in the series and embraces several elements of heightened suspense as the previous books did. I would definitely recommend it. 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. He has his own agenda, but finds himself attracted to the feisty woman, whose pink-tipped hair only peaks his interest.
