JUST ADDED! -- An Evening with Elin Hilderbrand


It's always a treat to be able to invite you to meet an author we know so many of you love! Elin Hilderbrand is one of those writers. Her novels -- mostly set in Nantucket -- have been favorite escapes for some of very favorite readers. We are incredibly excited to invite you to join Elin Hilderbrand here at Rakestraw Books on Friday, 19 October 2018 at 7 PM as we celebrate her new novel, Winter in Paradise.

Join New York Times Bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand on the stunning beaches of St. John for the beginning of her thrilling new winter series-The Paradise. Winter in Paradise, the first book in the Paradise series, has everything that readers have come to know and love about an Elin Hilderbrand novel, plus a healthy dose of intrigue. Irene Steele's idyllic life-house, husband, family-is shattered when she is woken up by a late-night phone call. Her beloved husband has been found dead, but before Irene can process this tragic news, she must confront the perplexing details of her husband's death. He was found on St. John island, a tropical paradise far removed from their suburban life. Leaving the cold winter behind, Irene flies down to the beautiful Caribbean beaches of St. John only to make another shocking discovery: her husband had a secret second family. As Irene investigates the mysterious circumstances of her husband's death, she is plunged into a web of intrigue and deceit belied by the pristine white sand beaches of St. John's. This exciting first book in the Paradise series will transport readers to a new beach locale-another world that Elin knows as well as her beloved Nantucket-and have them longing for winter.
