JULIA is the first book in Shannon Wavery's trilogy/mini-series, "Circle of Friends."

They'd been friends growing up on the small East Coast island of Harmony--Julia, Lauren and Cathryn, Amber and the others. Now one of them is dead, and Julia Lewis goes home for the first time in seven years.

Julia, a disc jockey returns to the east coast island of her youth to attend a friends funeral and is shocked to learn that the apparent suicide has been ruled a murder, with all the local residents under suspicion.

Julia's grief makes this a bittersweet experience. But coming home is also a chance to revive old memories and reconnect with her circle of old friends.
And to fall--hard--for a Boston journalist named Ben Grant who now owns the island's weekly paper.

Still, despite Julia's feelings for Ben, she can't accept his accusations about Amber's death-- first, that it was murder, not suicide. And second, that Charlie Slocum, the island's chief of police and father-figure to Julia, ran a sloppy investigation.

With his charming smile and insightful questions, Ben's causing all sorts of complications in Harmony's little world. And in Julia's...

Note: JULIA (Circle of Friends, Book 1), LAUREN (Circle of Friends, Book 2) and CATHRYN (Circle of Friends, Book 3)

"I don't care why you came back." Maggie's eyes flashed angrily as she added, "You're the father of my son-but that's all. I divorced you five years ago because I wanted you out of my life. I don't want you now!"

It was a lie. The divorce hadn't stopped Maggie from loving Wade. Only pride kept her from admitting it.

And pride made her contain her curiosity about Wade's return. He'd said he merely wanted to visit their son, Mike. But Maggie secretly feared there was something more....

A great Americana series a book for each of the 50 states.

I really enjoyed this book. With its flare for drama and humor. I did not put it down until I had finished it. I was laughing so hard at they way they just kept fighting and neither wanted to back down.
