Breakwater BayBook - 2014
Meri Hollis is happy to come home as her restoration career takes her back to her roots in Newport, RI. She can spend time with her Gran, contemplate her future with her not-so-committed boyfriend, and help restore a classic Newport mansion to its former glory. But her idyllic summer takes a turn on her 30th birthday. She did not expect to have her family's deepest, darkest secret exposed and she certainly didn't expect that secret to have anything to do with her... 30 years ago, Alden Corrigan was just a boy who snuck out of the house to take his father's dinghy out on the water. But when a storm come up, he suddenly finds himself playing rescuer to a girl. A very pregnant girl. After he saves her life, the girl runs off. But not before she leaves behind a very special gift. Now that the truth it out, there is much more at stake for the summer in Breakwater Bay. And Meri and Alden are thrust into situation that could prove to be the making of their futures... or the end of their friendship.
