Escape to Sugar Sand Beach with Michelle Robinson and her best friends for a second chance at all life has to offer.
At forty-five, Michelle has a great life. A husband who loves her. Two children on the fast track to success. A beautiful home in the rolling hills of Virginia. And three of the best friends a girl could ever want.
But with the sudden death of Michelle’s husband of twenty-five years, her life turns upside down.
Forced to sell their forever home and at odds with her children, Michelle faces a bleak future. Until an unexpected inheritance starts her on a path paved with bright possibilities.
Join Michelle, Reggie, Nina and Erin as they journey to Sugar Sand Beach where fresh opportunities for life, love and happiness are as limitless as the blue Florida skies.
The Gift at Sugar Sand Inn launches Duncan's new women's fiction series about four women, best friends, each at a crossroads in her life, who are offered the unexpected opportunity to take a new path. It's heart-tugging, complicated, hopeful, and inspiring.
In this first book, Duncan introduces us to four fully-developed and complex characters. While Michelle takes center stage, we begin to know all four friends and dip into their individual stories as they are tested by complicated family relationships, workplace manipulation, and personal betrayal. I'm intrigued by each of them, already forming attachments, fully invested in their stories, and eager to discover where this new adventure will take them. It will be fun to watch them bring a forgotten, Florida beachfront, Queen Anne home to life again with a new purpose as they - hopefully - do the same for themselves, with the possibility of new romances to sweeten the deal.
If you enjoy female friendships, mature characters (mid-thirties to mid-forties), new life adventures, and the beach (who doesn't love the beach?), give The Gift at Sugar Sand Inn a try. The remaining four books will all be released this year and I am eager to read all of them.

In their quest to restore their new property and open the Sugar Sand Inn, each woman takes responsibility for a different facet of the project. Michelle is the business mind, Reggie is in charge of landscaping, Chef Nina tackles the kitchen, and globe-trotting athlete Erin dives into water sports and other activities.
If you and a group of friends decided to restore an old home and turn it into an inn, which part of the project would you claim?
