Billie Stone will get her life back if it kills her.
When the car on the wrong side of the road ran into the minivan with Billie and her family late one hot, south Texas night, her life was changed forever. But with therapy, yoga, and meditation her doctor said she would be whole again. Then her mother became terminally ill.
Billie is a jazz singer with a voice like dripping honey. When she returned to Sandhill Island to live and heal, she was immediately hired to sing on the weekends at La Chez. She came home to the island that raised her and the people she loved. But then the man who went to jail for the death of her family came back to see her. He felt he’d paid his debt, and now she needed to help him become an upstanding member of society again.
The threats and harassment begin, and each time Billie thinks she sees a light at the end of a long dark tunnel, Joe Franks, the man who killed her family, is the freight train coming straight at her. Her friends try to protect her. Her therapist gives her tools to use for healing, and the courts offer a protective order. But Billie knows she is the only one who can make things right again.
She finds a new love, accepts a pregnant stray dog to live with her; she should have everything in life she needs, but Franks is always pulling the rug out from under her. If it weren’t for her music, she might never get out of bed again.
Stones of Sandhill Island is the second in the Sandhill Island Series. It will be released soon and I just received the cover this week. It is beautiful and sets the tone of the story. Life on Sandhill Island is gentle and calming – except when it’s not. Like the first story, Secrets of Sandhill Island, there is suspense, romance, and characters you will love and hate.
Stones of Sandhill Island to be released soon from The Wild Rose Press. I can’t wait to show it to you!
