Summary
  • "Set in a sun-kissed Caribbean paradise, this third book in the Shad detective series explores a love triangle gone wrong--and how class divisions create a perfect storm of trouble. Sarah, a talented but shy artist from England, arrives at the perfect getaway--a small fishing village in Largo Bay, Jamaica. There she falls in love with Danny, a wealthy investor with a hotel in Largo Bay. Soon Sarah runs afoul of her host as well as Danny's local lover, and her fate, as well as that of Danny's hotel, become endangered. Meanwhile, Shad Myers--"bartender by trade, investigator by vocation, and unofficial sheriff of Largo Bay" (Publishers Weekly)--has another set of problems to solve, alongside his friend Eric, an American who owns the bar. The two friends entertain a new potential investor in their quest to rebuild their hotel left in ruins by a hurricane. Eric wants to make Shad a partner in the business, not just a worker. But first the two must overcome the class divisions that make it difficult for local partners in the business to accept Shad's new, more important role. With a delicious blend of suspense and soul, The Sea Grape Tree explores the class divisions in Jamaica--and what happens when a love triangle becomes life threatening. Gillian Royes once again delivers a vivid, thought-provoking novel with passion and punch that is sure to leave her fans wanting more"--
  • "In the third book of The Shad Series, locals and visitors get caught up in a complicated love triangle while class divisions complicate Shadrack Myers' goal to gain status in Largo Bay, creating a perfect storm of problems for the Jamaican village's intrepid bartender to solve"--
