The last thing she expects to find is love.
Then she meets a mysterious man the locals call the Hermit. No one knows his real name or where he lives. To their mutual surprise, Claire and the stranger discover that they share a passion for cooking that soon sparks something more.
But Claire's new friend has a terrible secret that threatens to drive them apart forever. The clock is ticking. Can Claire let love into her life once more before it's too late?
Told by a "New York Times "bestselling author and international TV host with a keen eye for Chappaquiddick's extraordinary natural beauty, "Island Apart "has it all--romance, history, travel, crime, lovemaking of exquisite intensity, and cooking scenes so vivid, they'll make your taste buds ache with hunger. Steven Raichlen's novel is a smart love story--not to mention a terrific beach read. Think "The Bridges of Madison County "with better food.
