After finishing her bachelor degree, an island holiday was just what Elise wanted, and the chance to discover stone carvings. Any place with a carrot juice stand couldn't be all bad. It might even be ... interesting. But the first thing she found was a jack-of-all-trades. Now, Dale knows about petroglyphs and how to find these carvings. Elise doesn't want to be one more project for this handyman hovering around her, until suddenly, she does need his help. Instead of relaxation, on Saltspring Island she's finding unexpected challenges ...and danger.
Doublejoy Books is pleased to present the short novel Island Views. In this romantic intrigue, the cosy mystery story is made lighter with a little sweet romance and a real-life setting. If you're into boats and beaches or West Coast living, you'll find this tale worth a look.
"Utterly delightful and a memorable story."
