A southern Debbie Macomber, but with a flair all her own.--Karin Gillespie
In this poignant novel set amid the close-knit residents of Cedar Key, Florida, "New York Times" bestselling author Terri DuLong creates a story of old wounds healed--and bright new beginnings . . .
Everyone has been eagerly awaiting the opening of Cedar Key's newest shop, Berkley's Chocolates & Gems. For Berkley Whitmore, moving to the peaceful Florida island is more than a business opportunity. Beneath the bright purple streak in her dark hair lies a woman struggling with self-doubt. In Cedar Key, Berkley hopes to uncover the secrets that rippled through her mother's life, and in time, perhaps fill the gaps in her own.
Berkley's mouthwatering truffles and quirky charm soon draw a wide circle of friends--including the knitting enthusiasts who purchase yarn spun from her two alpacas. To her surprise, Berkley also attracts the admiration of Saxton Tate III, an English mystery author. And with the help of an old-timer local, she begins to piece together the truth about her mother and estranged father. Understanding the past brings a glimpse of what her future could be--if she accepts the love borne on the soft island breeze, and the happiness she's been seeking for so long . . .

"A delightful addition to that genre of needlecraft-inspired books." --"Library Journal " on "Casting About"
"You'll fall instantly in love with Cedar Key and this homespun knitting community, crafted with expert hands." --"New York Times " bestselling author, Lori Wilde.
