Far from the all the action of World War I, in a charming tourist’s spot on Cape Breton Island, Elizabeth Eames has stumbled into the most wonderful man in the world. She’s landed herself in a world where wealth reigns supreme; where any eligible bachelor would meet her mother’s highest aspirations. Of course, Elizabeth is dead set on the one she’s certain should not be mentioned in letters home.

Actually, there’s a lot she’s not mentioning. Something is not-quite-right at the grand resort Oceanside, but Elizabeth isn’t giving up her job on the basis of a few little suspicions. How likely could some monstrous crime be happening under her nose, anyway?

Read an exclusive excerpt:

Thistle dove bow-first into the heart of a white-capped wave. Foaming water rushed down from the transom, straight over the cockpit and straight over me, clutching the wheel.

“Steady,” Michelson, momentary captain, as it were, shouted over the howl of the wind. Calm, and utterly in command.

I gasped, drenched and freezing, but didn’t respond. Steady was simply impossible! Mr. Michelson might act like we were a young couple out for a jaunt around the bay, but I was not used to screaming up and down monstrous, white-crested waves. I white-knuckled the argumentative wheel of the sailboat to keep our course.

About the Author:
“Born in the sight of water,” are old lyrics that speak for me: For those of us from coastal towns, the sea forever calls.

“Trouble Cove,” features a journey up the eastern coast of Cape Breton Island – Nova Scotia’s northern tip – and the sea, in this, is more than the most romantic of backdrops. Wind and wave become part of the tale.

Like so many who have once visited Nova Scotia, the memory of iits rugged beauty fills me with an endless desire to return. Likewise, the island’s siren song entwines the plot, throughout; Trouble Cove.
