Description: When her uncle Hank, the vinegary crank who raised her, has an accident, freelance journalist Joanna leaves New York City for Martha's Vineyard to help him recuperate. To earn some money while Hank recovers, she takes a job reporting on local politics for one of the island's two papers. The zoning board is considering a request from Orion Smith, a seasonal resident, to build a helipad on his property to accommodate his private helicopter, raising the hackles of the year-round islanders, particularly Hank. The job covering the town-politics beat doesn't pay much, so Joanna takes another gig under a different name at the rival paper, putting herself in an ethical quandary. Then there's "town enemy Orion Smith. At first, Joanna's relationship with him consists mostly of banter about property rights and islander vs. summer-resident values, but as the attraction grows, so do the complications. Galland imbues latest her novel with a strong sense of place, and it will appeal to readers who like small-town settings that aren't overly sweet or falsely charming.
