About the book: Falling in love will pull you under…
-Bill Kyser has a plan to take the sandy farms of his hometown and turn them into a world-class tourist destination–and become a billionaire in the process.
-Alexandra “Lexy” LaSalle has a plan to change her life by becoming a world-famous artist.
-Meg Weaver has a plan to hold onto Bill no matter what she has to do.
Three friends, three dreams.
One fatal decision will change all their lives forever.
In Dragonfly, Bill Kyser gave Anna the three journals that held the story behind the powerful developer’s seclusion and the damaged lives of his family members.
Anna hopes to find a way for Julian to know the truth, but as she digs deeper into the tragic events of the past, she realizes silence could be the only option.
Now she’s in an alliance with the man she formerly feared. And if Julian finds out what she knows, she could lose for good the boy she’s starting to love.
Please enjoy the following excerpt from Meg’s diary in Undertow.
I walked over to the desk and took the top off my husband’s decanter of scotch. I’ve never been much of a drinker, so I poured a tall glass to the brim.
My first big gulp burned all the way down, past my shredded heart to my trembling stomach. I coughed and continued looking for evidence of the traitor in my life.
On the table at the foot of the stairs was a shot of the two of us wearing sombreros in Tango Sol. I threw it as hard as I could, smashing a plate-glass mirror.
Upstairs I dug through my husband’s bedside table. I was looking for a letter, a picture, any evidence of how long this had been going on right under my nose.
The one person I trusted most in the world.
The world’s biggest liar.
I found his journal and tore it open. A scrap of paper fell to the floor. “I’m pregnant. –A.”
I picked it up and read it. Then I blinked and read it again. All at once the truth slammed into me like a medicine ball straight to the gut. Julian’s father… Julian’s mystery father… Those bright blue eyes…
The pain ripping through my chest felt exactly like a hook had been inserted, twisted around, and jerked out fast. Never in my life had I hurt like this, not when Daddy died, not when Mama left, not even when I thought I’d lost Billy after the twins.
I dropped to my knees as a low moan forced its way from deep inside me, as tears flooded my eyes, as I slowly curled all the way to the floor.
She stole everything I had. My only dream.
I will never forgive her as long as I live.
