Candice Poarch’s Summer Read
Secrets in the Sand (e-book)
One of the fascinating things about writing is the opportunity to create unique characters. Secrets in the Sand is a nod for women who aren’t afraid to take on traditional “male” jobs and household tasks. Enter Nicole Curtis, a woman who’s right in the thick of sledge hammers and cement trucks. This is where I conceived the idea for creating a character who, due to circumstances—i.e. two divorces and a couple of children in tow—wants a nice home for her children, but buying new on a single income is impossible. My heroine buys fixer-uppers and learns to renovate them herself through courses at the home improvement stores, the Internet, and trial and error. She definitely has the “can do” attitude. Now the children are grown and when the opportunity to buy the beach house of her dreams presents itself, its run-down condition is a chance to fix it the way she wants it to be.
Secrets in the Sand is the 3rd title in the “Fifty Gone Wild” series. The first two titles are Christmas Gone Wild and Slippery Slope.
Two-time divorcee Kristin Mayer moved to Wet Sands, North Carolina, to be near her sister. Her fixer-upper comes as a bargain due to an eight year old murder that stifles sales. But Kristin packs heat and she’s fine with a bygone crime.
Chase Holloman is intent on protecting his grown daughter who as a child was accused of murdering their neighbor.
The bodies pile up and long-suppressed secrets come to life, forcing Chase and Kristin to reassess their lives. Can they clear Chase’s daughter and remove the obstacles between them and find real love?
How handy are you around the house? Would you consider tackling a renovation? The theme of the books in this series is long lost dreams. What long-ago dreams did you put on the sidelines when life got in the way?
