Upon returning to Cavanaugh Island, readers will be entertained with the history and culture of the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Characters finding love the second time around are an added bonus. There is also the pleasure of a story told in language that flows and is not dumbed down.

Francine Tanner had her time on the New York stage but, after some acclaim and a failed marriage, decides to return to her home in Sanctuary Cove and run the Beauty Box Salon with her mother. Francine is introduced to Keaton Grace, a producer/director who has relocated to the Cove in order to start his own studio. He’s thrilled because he’s has been a fan of hers for years. Although he would love to work with her, he’s more interested in Francine the woman, not the actress. As the pair falls in love, Francine has to learn to trust a man again. Keaton is fully open to waiting for Francine; she just needs to learn to trust herself. (FOREVER, Aug., 400 pp., $8.00)
