Here’s the set-up for Rose Senehi’s Pelican Watch, just $1.99 on Kindle:
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 “yankee gal.”
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.
From the reviewers:
“Senehi’s well-wrought plot and subplots qualify this novel not only in the genre of a hair-raising page-turner, but one of the best ‘Chick Lit’ novels out there.” —RAPID RIVER MAGAZINE
“Senehi has done fine job capturing the spice and flavor of the lowcountry while adding romance, intrigue and murder. She uses her keen sense for characterization and dialect to make this a great read.” —South Carolina WOMAN
“Senehi mixes all the makings of a page-turning beach book together in ‘Pelican Watch.’ When you’re sprawled on a beach towel, the drama fits and makes for an easy-to-read dose of Chick Lit. –Myrtle Beach SUN NEWS
“Senehi adds enough romance to keep you turning the pages well after the sun has gone down over the Intracoastal.” —CHARLESTON MAGAZINE
