Aunt Ivy’s Cottage (Bookouture, December, 2020)
By Kristin Harper
Romance and mystery collide in this cozy ‘beach novel’ about loss, love, second chances, and family secrets.
Thirty eight year-old Zoey Winslow arrives at her aunts’ home on Dune Island at a loss. Several losses, in fact. First her parents divorced. Then they both died. Then she lost her beloved sister Jess to cancer.
Nearly bankrupted by bad investments made by her ex-boyfriend, a “financial planner,” Zoey’s also recently lost her job as a librarian. She comes to Dune Island and Hope Haven to care for her ailing Aunt Sylvia and Sylvia’s dearest friend, Zoey’s elderly Aunt Ivy.
