What makes a great beach read? It has romance? Suspense? Is a page turner? And as they say in the real estate world, Location, Location, Location! Secrets of Sandhill Island has all of those things.
Meg lost her fiancé in a storm when he went out fishing alone. He was desperate for money, a baby on the way, he had to go. It was the last thing he told her. But was it really a storm that took him? Now years later, the baby is a lawyer in a very prestigious firm on the mainland and manages a large charitable trust. Meg has moved back home where she grew up, on Sandhill Island. It seemed like a good place to hide out from her past and do what she loved, garden.
But your past has a way of haunting you. She never felt like she belonged in the society world of Corpus Christi where her father insisted she mingle. But with is death, she had the opportunity to take his fortune – now hers – and do some good with it. The complete opposite of her father’s evil business dealings.
Then Alex entered her life. Alex had a past too when he appeared next door to her vegetable stand. At first he was a good neighbor who wanted to help her rid her garden of the rabbit that was making a banquet of it. But the relationship soon took another turn just as her son announced his wedding. Then the sparks started to fly. Meg thought she had remained anonymous on the island, but soon found out she wasn’t hiding – everyone knew who she was. And then the blackmail began just as a major hurricane zeroed in on the tiny island.
