I have a release date! My mainstream suspense novel, Secrets of Sandhill Island will be released by Wild Rose Press on January 14, 2015. I can’t wait! I love this story of mature love and the unfolding of a life that should have been lived years ago. Meg was a woman who hid from a world she didn’t understand and gave up trying to. Until she met Alex. Evan had been the love of her life. But soon after Alex showed up, so did the blackmail letters. Would life ever be the same again and did she really want it to?
All Evan wanted was to be with Meg. He would provide for her and the child, or children as the years went by. He was still unsure why she chose him – a fisherman – over anyone else in the world, but she did. Her family didn’t like him but, they were just going to have to get used to him.
He struggled pulling the nets in alone. The pulley did most of the work but it still would have been nice to have some help. The hair on the back of his neck stood up and he sensed the presence behind him. He turned around. The man stood almost close enough to touch. The dark ski mask pulled over his face sent a shiver up Evan’s spine. Where did he come from? But most of all, why did he hide his face out here on the open ocean? And then he saw the giant meat hook in his hand.
“Who are you and how did you get on my boat?” Evan stepped toward the intruder despite the danger. He never expected what came next.
“This is from Graham.” The man plunged the hook deep into Evan’s chest. Blood spurted every direction as Evan’s eyes bulged and he gasped only once. The man in the ski mask quickly pushed him over the side into the dark, churning water.
Secrets of Sandhill Island will be available Janurary 14, 2015. Pick up a copy and leave me a review. I hope you enjoy it.
