Summer will be here soon, so that means it’s time to pack our suitcases and vanity kits, because it’s vacay time! And it’s also time for a new Anita Hughes novel. This time in her what can only be called a beautiful book, ISLAND IN THE SEA (St. Martins/Griffin) she’s taking us to the very majestic island part of Spain known as Majorca. Once again, you can expect all the gorgeous tanned people, wearing all the latest designer fashions from Paris and New York and breath-taking scenery along with tantalizing, delicious mouth-watering, surprises to tempt any palate. Yum, yum! But at it’s heart, ISLAND IN THE SEA, like any Anita Hughes novel is a love story.

“Being in love makes your stomach turn but not being in love.” 

Twenty-eight year old, Juliet Lyman is a senior executive at Yesterday Records. She’s sent from headquarters in Los Angeles to Majorca with one purpose, to get the company’s once songwriting ATM to write a dozen songs that are past due or to payback the $166,000.00 advance he was handed over by Yesterday Records.

Lionel has no intention of writing any songs or giving anyone any money back. It dates back to something that happened years ago between Lionel and Gideon, head-honcho of Yesterday Records. Lionel talks Juliet into giving Gideon the run-around back in LA, while he explains what happens.

ISLAND IN THE SEA is like a delicious meal. You start with a beautiful location, add a beautiful character named Juliet, two gentlemen, Lionel and Gideon then a really cute blond professional tennis player named Henry, Gabriella who sings like an angel and finally the all-knowing, Lydia and you have all the ingredients for a  page-turner – a love story. Ah, it all works out, but Anita always writes a lovely story.

You better get your passport up to date, because Anita has two other books coming out this year in addition to ISLAND IN THE SEA this year. In August we’re going to Greece and in October, Paris! Talk about a busy, busy lady!

Thanks to Anita and St. Martins/Griffin, we have one copy of ISLAND IN THE SEA to giveaway to one lucky reader. Just tell us which island you would like to visit. We’ll pick a winner on Tuesday, April 12th,  PUBLICATION DAY!

And remember, for ALL things ANITA, check out she’s also on twitter and facebook

Good luck!

  1. I’d like to go to Maui. The last time I was there was about 25 years ago. I had stayed with a friend that worked at a hospital. Very rainy on one side of the island; beautiful.

    1. The last time I was in Maui was 5 years ago. I love the smell. It hits you when you first arrive. There’s a scent that is so unique, even the dirt. I love it.


  2. I LOVE Anita’s books and always get excited for a new release. I used to go on vacations all the time with my ex. We liked to go to Hawaii the most. But we visited other places, San Antonio, South Padre Island (several times because we live in Texas), Puerto Vallarta and Red River New Mexico. During our Hawaii trips, we visited Oahu (where he moved to after our divorce), Kauai and Maui. Now I am remarried (we have been together 16 years but married 6) and never take vacations. We did a couple Texas driving trips in the beginning, but now don’t do anything. So at this point, I would be happy going anywhere. The only escape I get is reading books and Anita’s books make me feel like I have been some place exotic. I’m always sad when I finish reading one as it feels the vacation has come to an end. Thanks for the chance to win her now book!

  3. I was blessed to be able to go to the big island – Hawaii, 10 years ago. Give me any tropical island with gentle breezes and warm clear water and I’m there!

  4. I would love to go to Bora Bora! I have always wanted to spend the night in one of those ‘over-the-water’ huts. It would be awesome to sit in the living room (or bedroom), and watch all the beautiful sea life below! 😎
