Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595325661, Paperback)Murder and suspense grip this tender love
story, laced with the unique flavor of a
South Carolina barrier island and the
unforgettable people who try to preserve it.
Nicky Sullivan always nurses injured animals, but this time she’s going to heal herself. She flees to a South Carolina barrier island and discovers a kindred spirit in Mac Moultrie, a salty retired fisherman. They ease into a leisure routine of shrimping in the marshlands—unaware of a murder committed to snatch old slave lands from a young black woman.
From the moment Nicky lays eyes on Trippett Alston, she’s smitten. This Southern gentleman, however, is more interested in fighting off the condominium development threatening his beloved island and its turtle nesting grounds than in the “forlorn Yankee artist.”
Nicky and Trip are destined for each other, but their allegiance to old causes, and the dark forces swirling around the island threaten to keep them apart.
“Pelican Watch has everything I look for in a great read: well-crafted, colorful sentences, interesting, memorable characters, and a plot that keeps you turning the pages. It’s a book that I gladly and joyfully recommend!”
“Pelican Watch captures the unique and beautiful atmosphere of the South Carolina Lowcountry, and also introduces the reader to the intrigue and mystery that can surround a community when real estate development arrives on an isolated coastal island.”
“Senehi’s mystery features tidy plotting, colorful characters, and plenty of intrigue.”
