Saving Miss Lillian
If you liked Downton Abbey's Dowager Duchess, you'll love Miss Lillian...
Nurse and single mom Sunny Iles leaves her hospital job after a romance ends badly to take a job with a doctor who’s starting a new practice in North Carolina. In the interim, she’s caring for an elderly grande dame in elegant Atlanta neighborhood Buckhead. Sunny finds that the feisty lady is in danger from a relative who wants the family’s unspoiled island off the coast of Georgia to build a resort for billionaires. The woman ruthlessly attempts to stage an “accident” that would cause Miss Lillian’s death.
Fighting to keep Miss Lillian safe from the would-be murderess, Sunny’s job takes her to Issatee Island. The island naturalist she meets is a loner who can’t get over his wife’s accidental drowning. But the island’s magic and moonlight weave a spell on the two—a spell they feel they must break. As they work together one last time to defeat the killer, Sunny faces her two greatest terrors.
