It’s a cold January day here in the Midwest. No snow, but the wind comes sweeping down the plains. I need some warmth and to hear the sound of the surf in the distance. And what better place to experience that than Sandhill Island? Here’s a new novella about the characters who inhabit the tiny island off the coast of Corpus Christi.
Strawberry Sundae Delights takes place in an ice cream shop on the island. In the summer on the beach what is better than ice cream?
Schoolteacher Sienna Schultz is still stinging from a bad breakup with her fiancé when she finds herself unexpectedly infatuated with a new man. While working her summer job at her aunt’s ice cream shop in the small tourist town of Sandhill Island, she meets Jake White, a college student from Corpus Christi who is working on a shrimper for the summer. Sienna is not ready for another relationship, but Jake is difficult to resist.
Sienna’s peaceful summer is shattered when a series of suspicious events unfold. Her aunt’s suppliers refuse to sell to her, putting the future of the shop in jeopardy. Then, when the store is vandalized, they wonder if someone is out to harm not only the business, but Sienna and her aunt as well.
Jake offers to help uncover who’s behind the incidents, which brings the two of them closer together. Can Sienna trust him…or is she headed for another heartbreak?
Strawberry Sundae Delights adds new characters to the island and revisits some you may already know. It is a romance with a hint of suspense. Summer on an island with a new love – ahhhh. Could life get any sweeter?
Strawberry Sundae Delights is an e-published novella available through Kindle, Nook, iTunes and distributors everywhere. It might be just the warmth you are looking for this winter.
