From the publisher:
In this poignant novel set amid the close-knit residents of Cedar Key, Florida, New York Times bestselling author Terri DuLong creates a story of old wounds healed--and bright new beginnings . . .
Everyone has been eagerly awaiting the opening of Cedar Key's newest shop, Berkley's Chocolates & Gems. For Berkley Whitmore, moving to the peaceful Florida island is more than a business opportunity. Beneath the bright purple streak in her dark hair lies a woman struggling with self-doubt. In Cedar Key, Berkley hopes to uncover the secrets that rippled through her mother's life, and in time, perhaps fill the gaps in her own.
Berkley's mouthwatering truffles and quirky charm soon draw a wide circle of friends--including the knitting enthusiasts who purchase yarn spun from her two alpacas. To her surprise, Berkley also attracts the admiration of Saxton Tate III, an English mystery author. And with the help of an old-timer local, she begins to piece together the truth about her mother and estranged father. Understanding the past brings a glimpse of what her future could be--if she accepts the love borne on the soft island breeze, and the happiness she's been seeking for so long . . .
Is this not one of the most compelling covers you've seen in a long time? I love this series, not just because I live near Cedar Key, but because the stories draw me in completely. The characters in this series are so real to me, down to earth and heartwarming, just like the author herself. I was privileged and thrilled to meet Terri in person when she spoke at our local library. Her characters have a lot of her heart and soul in them.
I've reviewed two of Terri's books, Casting About and Sunrise on Cedar Key in the past and really enjoyed them. I'm so looking forward to Postcards from Cedar Key and catching up with all my friends from the island.
