The Shark Club
On a summer day on the Gulf of Mexico in 1988, two extraordinary things happen to 12-year-old Maeve Donnelly. First, she is kissed by Daniel, the boy of her dreams. Then, she is attacked by a blacktip shark. 18 years later, Maeve is a world-traveling marine biologist swimming with the animals that once threatened her life. After an assignment abroad, Maeve returns home to the small island off Florida's coast where she grew up. There, she must make a decision. Will she return to her childhood love, Daniel? Or will she open her heart to Nicholas, her colleague who shares her passion for the ocean? An intoxicating debut.
