Just in time for beach-reading season, New York Times best-selling author Ann Kidd Taylor releases her warm and vivid new novel about taking second chances — in life and in the sea.
Maeve Donnelly has been interested in sharks ever since she was bitten by one as a 12-year-old and survived. Now an adult, Maeve is a marine biologist and more comfortable with sharks than she is with people.
At the end of a research trip, however, Maeve is drawn to Nicholas, a fellow researcher, and invites him to meet her in Mozambique for her next expedition. Yet when she returns to her childhood home at her aunt’s hotel in Florida, she finds unresolved family and romantic relationships waiting for her.
While Maeve has always been fearless in the water, on land she is indecisive. Should she re-kindle her romance with the first love she left behind when she dove into her work? Or indulge in a new romance with her colleague, who turns up in her hometown to investigate an illegal shark-finning operation?
Set against a backdrop of palm trees, calypso bands and perfect ocean views, The Shark Club is a story of forgiveness, love, the sea and the sharks that inhabit it.
“Captivating…an engaging novel about the loves that define our lives,” says Kirkus Reviews.
“A delicious summer read,” says Redbook.
