When Abby finds out Ian is grieving the death of his mother, she feels an instant connection. She knows his pain too well, and not many in her life understand what she’s been through. Their friendship grows, but a lingering sense of guilt prevents Abby from moving forward.
Will she surrender to grief and give up her second chance at happily ever after? Or will finding a rare angelwing shell intact on the beach be a sign it’s time to open her heart again?
Becoming an author happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she had in high school. After realizing she wanted to become a full-time author, Mary retired from teaching after twenty years. She also had the privilege of touring with the Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book: No Bullies Allowed.
Mary resides in Southern California with her husband, two children, and two little dogs, Mochi and Mocha. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Being a huge Twilight fan, Mary was inspired to make book-themed jewelry and occasionally gives it away as prizes to her fans.
TEASER ONE – THE SEASHELL OF ‘OHANA BY MARY TING
I placed my bag down on the sand, sat beside Kate, and watched Lee and Ian walk toward us from the ocean. Nobody could tell I was looking, because of my sunglasses, but heat blazed up my neck and down my middle, and it wasn’t from the warm sun.
Actually, I might have gawked. So did my sister and Stella. It was like watching two hot models in a swimsuit commercial shoot with water dripping from their hair, down their six-packs, and lower. The sun caught the sheen of sunscreen at that precise moment, giving the illusion that their bodies had been sleeked with oil.
Not going to lie. I couldn’t take my eyes off Ian.
“Holy hotness,” Stella muttered under her breath. “Sorry for staring, but damn. I’ve never seen two sexy Italian men in one place before.”
Kate lowered her sunglasses, narrowing her eyes at Stella, then raised her glasses again. “I don’t blame you. You can look all you want, but Lee is mine.”
