Sea turtles stumbling toward an oil spill. A mystery threatening a family. A reporter struggling to save them all.
When environmental writer Caroline Carlisle sets off to report on endangered sea turtles during the BP oil spill in 2010, she also uncovers long-kept secrets that threaten to destroy her family. The situation is complicated further by Caroline’s love for her late sister’s husband, Simon. An uproar ensues as Caroline’s southern family embarks on a collision with its past and future. At the same time, the oil from Deepwater Horizon continues to spew forth into the Gulf of Mexico, creating an urgency to save Florida’s wildlife. It’s in this atmosphere that Caroline discovers the truth about her family and writes noteworthy articles about wildlife rescues.
If you enjoy books that combine fiction with real world events, you’ll enjoy how the timeline and facts from Deepwater Horizon’s oil spill serve as the backdrop to Trails in the Sand.

Bestselling author P.C. Zick describes herself as a storyteller no matter what she writes. And she writes in a variety of genres, including romance, contemporary fiction, and creative nonfiction. She’s won various awards for her essays, columns, editorials, articles, and fiction.
The three novels in her Florida Fiction Series contain stories of Florida and its people and environment, which she credits as giving her a rich base for her storytelling. She says her, “Florida’s quirky and abundant wildlife–both human and animal–supply my fiction with tales almost too weird to be believable.”
P.C. writes both sweet and steamy romances. The sweet contemporary romances in her Smoky Mountain Romances, are set in southwest North Carolina. Another sweet romance series, Rivals in Love, contains two books with four more in the works. All six follow the Crandall family of Chicago as the siblings find love despite their focus on successful careers.
Her steamy romances go from Florida to Long Island. The Behind the Love series, set in a small fictional town in Florida, feature a community of people who form bonds as they learn to overcome the challenges of their youth. Her Montauk Romances are set in and around Long Island and feature simple, yet sophisticated beach houses designed with romance in mind. The two books in this set are filled with steamy scenes as love grows and thrives.
No matter the genre of novel, they all contain elements of romance with strong female characters, handsome heroes, and descriptive settings. She believes in living lightly upon this earth with love, laughter, and passion, and through her fiction, she imparts this philosophy in an entertaining manner with an obvious love for her characters, plot, and themes.
