Sandswept by Sarita Leone is the second book in the “Chincoteague Island” mystery series. Publisher: Whiskey Creek Press, January 2009
Everyone has a secret. One they hide. Sometimes, one they run from—fast and hard, without stopping to consider the consequences of that mad dash for sanity.
Kelley Garrett? She’s got a secret. A big one. She’s hoping to shake its grip but even someplace as peaceful as Chincoteague Island may not be able to shelter her.
Then again, who knows? Maybe it will. That’s a chance Kelley’s willing to gamble on—with her life.
Kelley Garrett, widowed for two years, has finally made a decision towards her future. She’s settling in their summer home, she took a job as a waitress and she’s confronting the past that holds a secret that is yearning to be set free. Owen Heath is attracted to Kelley and keeps popping up into her life. He holds the key with his patience and a secret that will open Kelley’s heart for love and life. This was a great romance story that I could not put down. I also enjoyed solving the mystery of what secret was being held and how it will change their lives. [4 stars – really liked it]
