Murder, mayhem and blossoming love on the Texas seashore


Evil is lurking in Port Serenity, Texas. This idyllic town is known as a beach playground for sun worshipers and bird watchers—not murder and mayhem in the real estate development community.


Zack Maynard is a California homicide cop on administrative leave who arrives to investigate the vandalism occurring on a project owned by his family business. His first meeting with Liza Henderson— the project manager in charge of the Blackwater Lake development—is more like a Monty Python comedy skit than a business meeting. She’s a widow with an extended family of eccentric characters and definitely not a typical Texas Rose. In spite of the wacky situation, she’s the first woman in years to jump-start his libido.


Can love blossom in this small town with its underground of nefarious characters? And will the good guys win? Absolutely!
