Love and romance mingle with bits of environmental truths in these three contemporary novels. ??? Tortoise Stew - Politics, murder, and chaos in rural Florida- Often compared to the novels of Carl Hiassen, Tortoise Stew exposes the quest to destory the landscape of rural Florida. Small town politics take center stage in this novel about the development of Florida at any cost. Kelly Sands is a reporter covering some of the more controversial and contentious issues in the fictional north Florida town of Calloway. Dead armadillos and gopher tortoise carcasses are left as calling cards to those opposing the development as commission meetings erupt into all-out warfare. With the murder of one commissioner and the suicide of his wife, Kelly begins an investigation that threatens to topple the carefully laid plans of the developers and politicians to bring a movie studio and landing strip within the city limits of the small town. When a young girl is killed by a semi-truck from Monster Mart, the environmentalists become even more vocal against the developers' plans. Chaos reigns as both sides raise voices and fists in one cacophonous uproar until saner heads bring justice to all. ??? Trails in the Sand - Family secrets, an oil spill, and redemption- When environmental writer Caroline Carlisle sets off to report on endangered sea turtles during the BP oil spill in 2010, the last thing she expects is to do is uncover family secrets. The long-kept secrets threaten to destroy her family, unless she can heal the hurts from a lifetime of lies. To make matters worse, Caroline's love for her late sister's husband, Simon, creates an uproar in a southern family already set on a collision course with its past. Trails in the Sand is set on Florida's panhandle and the east coast near St. Augustine. Florida's Panhandle beaches, including St. George Island, off the coast near Apalachicola in the Gulf of Mexico, are home to hundreds of sea turtle nests each summer. When the oil spill threatens to come ashore on Florida's Panhandle beaches, conservationists and wildlife managers join together in an historic effort to save the sea turtle eggs by moving them across the state to Cape Canaveral. As the oil from BP's oil spill continues to spew forth into the Gulf of Mexico, urgency to save Florida wildlife mounts. It's in this atmosphere that Caroline discovers the truth about her family as she writes stories about the rescue of the eggs. ??? Native Lands - Nature and love disrupted always find a way back- When their environment is torn apart by a conglomerate of international interests, a tribe of native Floridians thought to be extinct rise up and form their own oddly matched conglomerate, and with the assistance of nature, attempt to halt the destruction of the natural world they treasure.
