When Marcus O'neill came into Laurel's Long Island Bookshop, she had no idea of the new road he would open for her. Only when Marcus picked up a copy of her fathers latest novel did premonition strike her. Clifton York left her mother when Laurel was a small child, and she had never heard from him since. She had pretended she didn't care, but fed her own secret anger by reading his books, following his career, keeping old pain alive. When Marcus explained that her father was his friend, the Clifton York had an urgent need for his eldest daughter, and that there might not be much time left for him, Laurel was forced to decision. The trip down the florida keys set the stage for all that awaited her in Key West's Old Town- intrigue that involved a sunken treasure, mopdern piracy, and a burgeoning new love. She must deal not only with two surprising half sisters, still tied to the glamorous mother who had died mysteriously a year before, but also with the strange and evil orchids that were to threaten Laurel and her new love, and eventually lead to nightmare.....
