Sharon Lee
"Sharon Lee is one of my all-time favorite authors, a gifted storyteller whose work never fails to enchant.  With Carousel Tides she gives her fans another opportunity to spend time with fascinating characters, bringing them to life in a place that becomes so real you can smell the salt air around you.  Her fine hand with detail never lets the suspense falter, as mystery, folklore, and magic are artfully interwoven into a thoroughly engaging tale.  Carousel Tides will leave you eagerly awaiting the next novel by this master."
