Fate's Gift To Sara - A young nurse is brutally attacked and raped, and what happens as a result of that attack affects everyone in her life, including the handsome and exotic-looking human resources manager of the hospital in which she works after fleeing to San Francisco. This story of love, hope and redemption moves between the beautiful city by the Bay and a small island, St. Lucretia, off the coast of Montserrat in the Caribbean.
Lani's By The Sea, in Key West - A blues singer from Chattanooga teams up with two union muscians in Brunswick, Georgia, after leaving her cheating piano player fiance' in Mississipi. Soon the trio lands a gig at a club in St. Augustine that lasts four decades. A year after the death of her bass-playing husband, she tells the piano player she just can't sing, anymore, and leaves her home on the beach in Jacksonville, ending up at the end of the road in beautiful Key West. Three years later, he follows. Life gets thoroughly complicated, wonderful and unbelievable in this trilogy that involves everything from stalking and attempted murder in Jacksonville to the homeless in Chattanooga and Key West, traumatic brain injury to the spiritual world, and . . .
Song of Cicadas - A 40-something divorced English teacher and mother of teenage twins, from Cincinnati, takes them on a late summer cruise to the Bahamas that promises some last minute fun and relaxation for the three of them before school starts. Then, they meet the ship's magician, a widower, former science teacher, and father of a married son with two small sons of his own. Little did they know they'd be in Hawaii by Thanksgiving, and at a wedding at the lush Fern Grotto in the rain forest, before returning to Cincinnati. This story of love, renewed hope and romance in middle-age is interwoven with a tragedy in the life of one of her daughters' friends, and how she handles it changes an entire high school, and everyone in it, including the teacher and her daughters.
That Old Feeling - A sad story of the road not taken. A young nurse from southern Ohio moves to Miami in 1960 and meets the love of her life, three weeks later. He is a gynecologist who has just completed his residency in OB/GYN in Jacksonville, and has come to Miami to begin his practice. Their hearts collide, but after a year, she leaves him. After a fourteen year marriage to someone else, she is three weeks from her divorce, when her former love asks her to come to see him for the first time since they parted before her marriage, which he desperately tried to stop. He tells her to sit down and he'll fix her a strong drink, knowing she does not like hard liquor. She noticed he'd lost a great deal of weight and fears what this can mean. When she asks if she's going to need the drink, he says yes. Sitting on the sofa with her back to him, she asks one question, "How long?" Handing her the drink, he leans down and kisses her for the first time in fifteen years, before he answers the question.
Bone Island Maggie - Peg Gregory's first and probably last attempt at humorous mystery, in this wacky tale of a 70-something woman from Key West and her 50 year old friend and chauffeur, the former Southernmost Bagpiper. When they return from Miami International Airport where he has picked her (and her contraband) up after a trip to Cuba, and they stop in her favorite pit stop and watering hole, Alabama Jack's in downtown Card Sound, for a bite to eat, she spies what she believes could be a body lying among the mangroves across Biscayne Bay from them. After they finish eating and return to her gold Hummer, they put on wet suits and swim to the mangroves, using a gator for a step stool, thinking it is a log, until it moves. They are shocked when they realize, at the same time as the Monroe County deputies who have caught them red-handed with the body of the man 'they've' killed, that the corpse is someone from Key West known to all of them.
