Tonight was an extra fun night as my husband and I got to celebrate the official release of the newest novel by Mary Alice Monroe: “Beach House Reunion”. Since sea turtles are a huge theme in Mary Alice’s “Beach House” series, the party was held at the South Carolina Aquarium.
I love going to the aquarium (beach girl here!) but to be able to be with other authors and readers was quite the treat. Besides being able to spend time with Mary Alice, we also got to tour the aquarium, visit the new sea turtle hospital and more. The work that these fantastic people do for the rehabilitation of these beautiful creatures is amazing. As for the rest of the aquarium, I personally could sit for hours just watching the slow gentle movements of the fish and other ocean creatures as they swim in the enormous enclosure.
I’m proud that our local aquarium is so conscientious about the lives of the injured sea creatures that find their way to our shores and nearby water inlets. Then being able to watch these animals being released back into the wild is so exciting and a wonderful treat.
If you like the beach and sea turtles, you’ll love Mary Alice’s books. Just last month her novel “The Beach House” debuted on the Hallmark Channel to rave reviews. Plus I have something special coming soon and the “Beach House Reunion” novel might just be a part of it. We shall see!
