New from Best-selling Author Jean Stone: Vineyard Magic
From the best-selling author of THE SUMMER HOUSE and OFF-SEASON...VINEYARD MAGIC is the latest Jean Stone novel set against the intriguing backdrop of the celebrated island of Martha's Vineyard. VINEYARD MAGIC captures the predicament of the fabulously wealthy Libby and Walter who have now lost it all: the co-op, the trust fund, the house in Belize, and maybe even their island retreat where Libby has gone into seclusion. Enter Libby’s air-kissing, society friends who go to the Vineyard to offer best girlfriend support:
• DEVON: After a vicious divorce, she has a great job and big goals that take a sharp detour when a sexy, ex-convict appears
. • CANDACE: Whose social register standing is in jeopardy when her secret past knocks on her Park Avenue door
. • EMMIE: Who has sneaked from her husband, rekindled long-lost, naughty passion, and now must make a choice. But their problems have only begun. Once on the island, the women discover that Libby is beset with amnesia, her husband is missing, and a dead body has turned up in the phlox.
Through their wits and their wiles, and with no help from Libby, they must solve the murder before one of them ends up behind bars. VINEYARD MAGIC is a delicious, fun romp through the chatty, sometimes catty, ups and downs of women’s friendships, and shows that there is true magic in sticking together. JEAN STONE has been applauded by Publishers Weekly for her "...graceful prose, vivid imagery, and compassionately drawn characters" and by best-selling author Sue Margolis as "...a masterful storyteller."
