What’s Something in the Water about?
The sealed box Teal finds in the street contains more than just a mystery…
What if to be with the man of your dreams…you had to give up your life? On the verge of losing her job, side-lined journalist Teal Douglas is forced to travel to the South Pacific to profile a powerful businessman. But with her almost-but-not-quite fiancé Bear discouraging her every step of the way, she may not be able to save her career or her relationship.
When corporate criminals invade paradise, Teal teams up with former boxer turned marine biologist Perry Stanley to investigate. With the help of an old islander and a wise humpback whale, they discover the true intentions behind the new fishing operations. Teal must then either accept the plum promotion that will save her career or—with Perry—defend the island with more than her life.
