Beach reads aren’t just for summer

The Independence Islands–a group of seven fictional islands off the
coast of South Carolina and Georgia. Their history began pre-colonial
period and continues until this day.

Mimosa is large, touristy, and everything the lower five
islands don’t want theirs to become. However, locals do miss
having some of the amenities that come with higher populations and those
dratted tourists. They’ve always voted to keep strangers from destroying
their tranquil lives, but with a changing world, will they have to adapt
to modern revenue makers?

Enter Mallory Barrows. Her family has lived on the islands for over a
hundred years. She’s back, and she’s got a plan to help the
islanders and a few savvy businesswomen at the same time with a
one-of-an-island kind of business model.

Mobile Businesses!

Meet Mallory, see what brought her back to the islands, and follow the
birth of a new business baby in Christmas on Breakers Point. (A
Christmas novel for all year!)
