Sample text

At six thirty in the morning, they’d taken black coffees and bagels with cream cheese to a café table to talk business over breakfast. Olivia had met Captain Fergusson over the summer, and after serving his shrimp to the patrons of her five-star restaurant, The Boot Top Bistro, she would order from no other shrimper. Not only did his catches taste as fresh as the moment they’d been lifted from the ocean, but the captain was also a sharp businessman who treated both his crew and his customers with equal fairness.

Haviland whined and rushed to her, his snout exploring her partially hidden face. “I’m not hurt, Captain,” she said, turning away from the horrible thing on the beach. She lowered her mouth to the sand and breathed deeply. Once she had a lungful of air, she had to look back, to try to comprehend the atrocity she’d uncovered. For surely that’s what it was.

Go see that man of yours. ” After placing a twenty on the counter, Olivia stepped out into the sunlight. Instead of walking to her car or in the direction of her lover’s bookstore, she and Haviland headed for the docks.
