Stranger in ParadiseRomance, gossip, and murder upend a California town in this “intelligent, page-turning read” from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Diary (Booklist).
It isn’t easy to watch your daughter marry a man who’s twice her age, but Samantha Kiley holds her tongue. Wes seems like a good man, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s also a billionaire. She has no idea that she will soon be caught up in a May–December affair of her own that will set tongues wagging in the idyllic small town of Carson Springs.
When Sam, a widow, becomes involved with Wes’s son, who is fifteen years her junior, it sends tremors through the Kiley family and their small town. But gossip isn’t the most dangerous thing in Carson Springs: This peaceful place is about to be rocked by murder. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
Stranger in Paradise is the 1st book in the Carson Springs Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
