(Featured Story September 2017) Allison is spending the summer on picturesque Peaks Island, Maine where she is the caretaker for her Aunt Meredith's exquisite beach house. While her intention is to hide-away in the small caretaker's cottage and write her first novel, she begins a relationship with a sweet ferry operator named Kevin. Kevin's rugged New England manner appeals to Allison just as a remote culture appeals to an anthropologist. Allison has grown to love the easy lifestyle and the natural beauty of the rocky coastal island. Things change when a handsome, confident New Englander named Greg Marshall inquires about renting the house.  She finds herself completely flustered by his looks and smooth manner. Yet as her attraction for him grows, her life on Peak's Island begins to fall apart. First Allison almost drowns at their private beach. Then her personal journal goes missing and she begins receiving threatening texts. She senses she's being watched and a series of coincidences seem to confirm that she, in fact, may be in danger.  Peaks Island is a romantic and humorous love story with a hint of suspense.

I loved the moment she confronted Kevin about the date. That one little moment revealed so much about their respective characters.
