After twenty years, Elizabeth “Betts” McGee has finally managed to put her past behind her. She hasn’t been home to beautiful South Carolina and untouched Bulls Island since the tragic night that ended her engagement to Charleston’s golden boy, J. D. Langley.

And why is that? Really, this is the story of two old Southern families. The Langley family has more money than the Morgan Stanley Bank—and they think they have more class. The Barrett family made their nineteenth-century fortune in a less distinguished manner—corner grocery stores and liquor stores. It’s no surprise that when J. D. and Betts fall in love and decide to marry their parents are none too pleased. And when the love affair comes to an end, everyone is ready to place blame.

Now twenty years have gone by, and Betts, a top investment bank executive, must leave her comfortable life in New York City to return to the home she thought she’d left behind forever. But spearheading the most important project of her career puts her back in contact with everything she’s tried so hard to forget: her estranged sister, her father, J. D., and her past.

Once she’s home, can Betts keep the secret that threatens all she holds dear, or will her fear of the past wreck her future happiness? And what about that crazy gator? All will be revealed on Bulls Island.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Gerianne Hannibal | 2/20/2014

    " forgettable; a summer beach read that is predictable if mildly enjoyable. previous book i read by this author much more enjoyable - shem creek i think. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Annie | 2/19/2014

    " I would probably give this 1 1/2 stars because it was mildly entertaining and absorbing. As usual with this sort of "beach read" or chick lit novel, I found it to be overwrought and melodramatic. The ending was tied up too nicely with a pretty bow and seemed rushed and quite frankly, ridiculous. The whole Vinny character seemed extraneous to me, as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Eric | 2/12/2014

    " This book was good and I got into the story, but if feel the ending was very rushed. "

    " I listened to this book. The narrators were not as good as the other book. The story line was interesting..and pretty predictable. The main characters, Betts McKey and TJ Lang were likeable enough. It is a good on to listen to when you go up and down the NJ Turnpike. Made me want to visit the "low country" like the last book. "
