A gripping romantic suspense, set in The Bahamas and Scotland, with scenes in London, Devon, Fort Lauderdale and New York. “Love at Sunset” shows the determination of Violet and Gordon, a feisty older couple in love for the second time around, to enjoy their autumn years to the fullest.Faced with fierce opposition from their children and possible payback from an armed robber, they flee The Bahamas for a loch side cottage in Scotland. But trouble soon catches up with them.The plot follows the people in the couple’s lives - those who support them, others who wish to resist or harm them, and some on whom Cupid also comes calling. It portrays family discord and evil intent, but is not without a touch of humour. And it reveals the gap between rich and poor and the humanitarian works of those who care.Excerpts from Love at Sunset:1. “Once out of sight from the main road, they relaxed on a seat beneath a casuarina tree and kissed. Then they gazed out across the sapphire blue sea to a lone sailboat on the horizon. The sun was going down, the sky like an artist’s canvas with gold and orange brush strokes. The sweet aroma of a barbecue drifted along the sea shore.”2. “The apartment was spotless. Violet’s elegant furniture was still in place, but her ornaments, photos, paintings and other personal items were missing. Sandra opened drawers and closets. Empty.”3. “Ian sang a Bahamian love song, thinking all the time about Anna, the young woman he had recently been thrown together with at the humane society. He remembered how she had swept her long brown hair out of the way and smiled at him with those soft hazel eyes.”4. Aware they would need to turn back soon because the days were getting shorter, they ate quickly and continued up the mountain slope. The path had become slippery, with mud in patches.“It’s getting a bit misty,” Violet said, feeling a little anxious. “Perhaps we should turn back.”“Just a bit further, lassie. We still have time.”But the path became more treacherous.5. “As darkness fell he heated up a can of soup and had it with some fresh, sweet Long Island bread. He made sure his door was locked, stretched out on the bed and tried to go to sleep. He kept thinking about the two men and wondered why they thought so highly of Violet Buchanan. As far as he was concerned, she was just an old lady with a lot of property that she really didn’t need.”Reviews:Its gripping, alluring and so wonderfully romantic on many different levels -“Love at Sunset is a story about an elderly couple, Violet and Gordon, who have fallen deeply in love with one another. However, they face staunch opposition of that reality from their own children for various reasons. Determining to be together til the very end, they make a huge step to ensure that happens, no matter the cost. This story covers the drama-filled lives of a number of very interesting characters and I was amazed at how the author was able to craft such a plot and cover ground so extensively and cleverly. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it. Its gripping, alluring and so wonderfully romantic on many different levels.”- ReviewerLove and Intrigue -“Love at Sunset is a heart-warming story about an elderly couple who find each other late in life and follow their hearts despite their childrens disapproval. The story takes the reader from the Bahamas, where the author lives, to Scotland, where she was born and back again. Love and intrigue intertwine along the way to reach a satisfying conclusion.”– Mrs. H. E. McLoughlinEnjoyed it -“A wonderful, tightly plotted read. It’s refreshing to see an older couple in love and creating their own adventures. I particularly liked the descriptions of The Bahamas and Scotland where the action takes place. The characters are memorable, both good and bad, and there is an upbeat ending. A good book to read with your feet up under a palm tree.”– Lesley Spencer
