Description
"To keep her son safe, Lily Davis, single mom, moves from Manhattan to Sakonnet Bay, a picture-postcard town on the Long Island coast, where teenagers, she hopes, do not get in trouble. She finds a house (with wildlife in the front yard), a friend (her realtor, a fellow displaced New Yorker), and a job (writing for the weekly paper). Her son, Sam, enrolls in high school, shaves his head, and makes a friend (a girl who speaks fluent Klingon). Things are looking good, until the dog bite." "It is while covering a local story that Lily gets bitten and then meets Tom McKee, a police sergeant, both rakish and married. Trespassing in a vacant summer house, they spy a naked woman, asleep. The conspiratorial aspect of the incident (not to mention the voluptuousness of the naked woman) alerts them to the sexual tension between them. When Lily begins to suspect that the woman may be dead, the stakes are raised - on their secret and their affair - and Lily learns that in a sleepy seaside village, rumor travels faster than the response to a 911 call." "Through her weekly column, Lily explores the mores and manners of small-town life as seen through her big-city eyes and, in the process, bares enough of her soul to make her a local celebrity. In the glare of the Sakonnet Bay spotlight, she attempts to have a private life, raise a child, solve a murder, and not fall in love."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
