Summer will be here soon, so that means it’s time to pack our suitcases and vanity kits, because it’s vacay time! And it’s also time for a new Anita Hughes novel. This time in her what can only be called a beautiful book, ISLAND IN THE SEA (St. Martins/Griffin) she’s taking us to the very majestic island part of Spain known as Majorca. Once again, you can expect all the gorgeous tanned people, wearing all the latest designer fashions from Paris and New York and breath-taking scenery along with tantalizing, delicious mouth-watering, surprises to tempt any palate. Yum, yum! But at it’s heart, ISLAND IN THE SEA, like any Anita Hughes novel is a love story.
“Being in love makes your stomach turn but not being in love.”
Twenty-eight year old, Juliet Lyman is a senior executive at Yesterday Records. She’s sent from headquarters in Los Angeles to Majorca with one purpose, to get the company’s once songwriting ATM to write a dozen songs that are past due or to payback the $166,000.00 advance he was handed over by Yesterday Records.
Lionel has no intention of writing any songs or giving anyone any money back. It dates back to something that happened years ago between Lionel and Gideon, head-honcho of Yesterday Records. Lionel talks Juliet into giving Gideon the run-around back in LA, while he explains what happens.
ISLAND IN THE SEA is like a delicious meal. You start with a beautiful location, add a beautiful character named Juliet, two gentlemen, Lionel and Gideon then a really cute blond professional tennis player named Henry, Gabriella who sings like an angel and finally the all-knowing, Lydia and you have all the ingredients for a page-turner – a love story. Ah, it all works out, but Anita always writes a lovely story.
You better get your passport up to date, because Anita has two other books coming out this year in addition to ISLAND IN THE SEA this year. In August we’re going to Greece and in October, Paris! Talk about a busy, busy lady!
Thanks to Anita and St. Martins/Griffin, we have one copy of ISLAND IN THE SEA to giveaway to one lucky reader. Just tell us which island you would like to visit. We’ll pick a winner on Tuesday, April 12th, PUBLICATION DAY!
