Crashing Waves by C.J. Baty Blog Tour


Justin Warfield ran away to Italy to put the events of last summer and a certain dark-haired private eye behind him, to no avail. If anything, he can’t help but rehash what happened over and over. When he finally returns to South Carolina, the hotel he runs with his brother has suffered a series of incidents that are starting to look less accidental after a death threat is received.

Not satisfied that Moses Lee and his local police will find the culprit, Peter Warfield calls in the services of his good friend Marcus Drummond to help. Marcus is torn. He wants to help his friend, but he also knows that if Justin has moved on after their failed flirtation last summer, he will be devastated.

Tensions mount as danger seems to follow them at every turn, stalking them as they get closer to solving the mystery of who is behind the sabotage of the hotel.

This is the second book in this series. I think it was somewhat predictable, but overall, a good story.

Marcus is hesitant to return to the Warfield because the last time he was there, his lover pushed him away. He is gun shy – while he still has feelings for Justin, he doesn't know if he can help Justin figure out why someone is out to get the Warfield.

Justin is somewhat of a mystery character throughout. I didn't really feel that I got to know Justin that well – he was less of a main character, in my view, than Peter. That being said, I also had a more difficult time with the chemistry between Justin and Marcus in this book.

The mystery aspect was predictable, but I still enjoyed the road that Baty went down. I am glad that character is gone – he bugged me during the last story too.

Overall, this was a nice story, but not a great one.




C.J. Baty lives in southwest Ohio. Her heart, however, lives in the mountains of Tennessee where she hopes to retire some day. The mountains have always provided her with inspiration and a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday life.

The dream of writing her own stories started in high school but was left on the back burner of life until her son introduced her to fan fiction and encouraged her to give it a try. She found that her passion for telling a story was still there and writing them down to share with others was much more thrilling than she had ever expected.

She has a loving and supportive family who don't mind fixing their own meals when she is in the middle of a story, and a network of friends who have encouraged and cheered her on in her quest of being an author.

One thing she has learned from life and she is often heard to say is: “You are never too old to follow your dream!”
