House of the Blue Sea
by Teresa van Bryce
Following a devastating loss, Sandra Lyall runs south to Mexico seeking solace. She finds refuge in a hotel on the edge of the sea to which she returns each winter to continue the healing. But this year’s stay would be different. When a scruffy Englishman offers to buy one of her paintings, Sandra finds herself torn between her hard-won serenity and her draw to a compelling but risky alternative.
