Sex... Secrets... Scandal... Murder Written by queer women, for queer women. Conch Island is the last island before the open sea, as far west as America allows. Mariel Ridgeway was a renowned painter and curator, a senator's widow, and a legend in her time. When Mariel purchased a remote cove on the secluded island, she founded a cottage town of women living on the edge of the world. But she had no idea how the raw forces of nature would fuel a town populated with passionate secrets. Following the lives of fourteen women, Mariel Cove is an erotic drama of interconnected mysteries, scandal and secrets. Styled like a television show, the series is written by a team of writers — each in charge of her own characters — then released in weekly installments of twelve ebook episodes per season. Mariel Cove Season 2, Volume 1 compiles the first six episodes of Season 2 in a print edition for the first time.
