All the summer’s guests are gone from Seascape Haven, all except artist Tyler MacGregor who captured it on canvas. But Tyler cannot step off Seascape land without mysteriously blacking out. A mystical force is determined to hold him at the inn. Help arrives in the form of Maggie Wright, whose mission begins as one of revenge and turns to one of love.



“[Hinze] (Mind Reader) successfully launches the new Seascape series with a debut contemporary that revolves around a mystical bed-and-breakfast of the same name. The whimsy begins when Tyler MacGregor, a world-class artist, returns to Seascape Inn to find peace and healing after the death of his fiance. The peace is short lived when Tyler discovers a mysterious “something” is holding him against his will and he can’t leave. With the arrival of spunky Maggie Wright on the scene, it isn’t long before both are embroiled in the mysterious happenings. [Hinze]’s vivid imagination is contagious, and her clever fusion of humor, mystery and romance makes the story almost believable.”  –Publishers Weekly
