Word is the new man in town, Mike Kelly, is an author writing the next “Great American Novel.” Librarian Ava Sinclair knows that’s not true. He spends too much time fishing and trekking around Cape Hatteras Island. But when men in a black car show up and follow Ava, not only does handsome Mike Kelly get involved, but Ava’s older brother, Sheriff Martin Sinclair does as well. Who are these men and why are they following her? It’s 1928 during Prohibition and things take a sinister turn when rum-runners from Chicago use the sleepy North Carolina town of Buxton to further their criminal enterprise. Can Mike and Martin protect not only Ava, but Buxton and beyond from their corrupt plan? Ava finds herself falling for the blue-eyed stranger who won’t tell her why he’s here. Can he protect her before she disappears from Cape Hatteras for good?
