Cocktails & Casualties
Teddy Aarons is a nomad, using her bartending skills as an excuse to move to a new luxury resort with each change of the season. But when she finds herself stuck on the remote island of Mahina Cay, she finds refuge in the quirky little Township of Crooked Cove.
Crooked Cove is a village of expats from various countries, and the people are welcoming, but she only intends to stay long enough to make the money to get off the island and back to her real life.. However, when one of the village’s most distinguished citizens turns up dead, it’s up to her to either solve the case or become a permanent resident of the slammer!
With her new friend Jasmine and retired attorney Nate on her side, Teddy will do whatever it takes to shake out the truth and stir up the real killer to clear her name. Will she manage to keep herself out of lockup, or will she end up under the influence of the Mahina Cay Prison?

Who do you trust when you can't trust yourself?
‘Destiny,’ on the other hand, is a little more hit-and-miss. One is not fated to meet their destiny. It requires work on behalf of the individual. One must make the right choices and follow the correct paths to reach their destiny. They must complete journeys, solve quests, and battle demons, whether they be external or internal, then emerge victorious before they can claim their prize. One must choose to accept their destiny, and therefore, can also refuse it.
Those choices, journeys, quests, and demons are oftentimes disguised and deceptively innocuous. We often don’t realize the importance of our decisions. Should I stay home or go to the party? Should I have the fish or chicken? These tiny moments happen every day and usually pass by unnoticed. When we make the wrong Choice, we remain blissfully unaware that we missed the opportunity to seize our destiny.
Terra knew that her decision to divorce her husband was a big Choice. Her idea of a London vacation to celebrate the dissolution of her marriage was exciting, but she had no idea that it would spark a series of big Choices that would change not only her own life, but those of generations both before and after her. She had no idea she was taking the first step on a new path that would lead to her destiny. Or was it fate after all?
