Jessica Thornton and her son, Spencer "Splinter" Thornton, move to Zanzibar after she inherits a house owned by her former art teacher. Upon their arrival, Jess is shocked when she bumps into her estranged husband, Rick.
A treasure hunt, a murder, and a determined husband all conspire to turn Jess' world upside down. Will she let go of her bitterness and resentment? Will she learn to trust again? Mama Hannah, from book 1, provides a strong dose of wisdom, while Jess learns she's not as self-sufficient as she thought.
Loved, loved, loved this book! I whipped through it in two days. (You can imagine how little I got done around here.) Catherine, if you're out there, I'd love to interview you. :)
