Pelican WatchBook - 2007
Nicky Sullivan nurses injured animals...but now 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. Pelican Watch is a tender love story told against a backdrop of murder and suspense, laced with the flavor of South Carolina's lush low country and the unforgettable people who work to preserve it.
