With just a couple of novels under her belt Beatriz Williams has quickly established herself as a writer to be noticed. Her latest novel COCOA BEACH solidifies this reputation. It is a book that ebbs and flows like the tides that lap the shores of the Florida beach property where most of this story takes place. Williams gives the story a cadence that pulses with romance and grows even more intense with the convoluted plot involving a myriad of characters. There are twists and turns aplenty but it all sorts itself out in the end while possibly setting up another story for this series.
