Beatriz Williams, Cocoa Beach Saturday, July 15 at 2:00pm We love having Beatriz Williams in the fox den and we are excited to read her new novel, Cocoa Beach! February, 1917: Haunted by a dark family secret, Virginia Fortescue flees New York City to war-torn France to volunteer as a Red Cross ambulance driver. There, a chance encounter with a brilliant, charismatic British army surgeon opens her heart to the possibility of love. She embarks on a passionate affair with him amid the catastrophe of war, only to discover Captain Simon Fitzwilliam’s past has its own dark secrets, and the terror she left behind may have followed her across the ocean. June, 1922: Virginia Fitz William arrives in the tropical boomtown of Cocoa Beach, Florida in search of her estranged husband. She is convinced that he’s still alive after an unexplained fire destroyed his home in the middle of the night and she is determined to discover the truth of his past for the sake of their young daughter, whom he’s never met. Simon’s brother and sister welcome Virginia and little Evelyn into a sunlit world of citrus groves and dashing rumrunners, and the arms of the loving family she’s never known. But Virginia senses a predatory presence lurking beneath the irresistible, hedonistic Florida landscape. The more she learns about Simon and his mysterious business interests, the more she fears that she was right. That Simon is still alive, and her life, as well as their daughters, may be in danger…
