Sage Churchill has always had the best of everything, a loving father that gave her everything her heart desired and good friends to kick it with, which always made life more exciting. She thought her life was perfect, until the day her father makes a deathbed confession that shatters her world as she knows it.

When Sage finds out that her mother, whom she was led to believe died, may be alive and living in Jamaica, her world is turned upside down. She is faced with the toughest decision of her life. Does she search for a woman she’s never known or does she ignore her longing for a mother’s love?

Sage, Nicky, Tish, and Lace have been friends since pre-school. But their relationship suffers when they bring the drama to Sage’s doorstep. Her girl, Nicky, has gotten herself involved in the drug game and has Sage’s name all caught up in the mix, bringing the authorities to her door. Tish, has a mystery lover and when that person’s identity is revealed, it may tear the girls’ thirteen year friendship apart and possible cause one of them to lose their life.

Will Sage find her mother and live happily ever after? Will she survive the drama? Or have a nervous breakdown?

Once again Marlene has penned an excellent story that will leave you shaking your head like "She did what?" The way the action unfolds is very unsuspecting and real and the descriptive details of how things are on the island made me feel as though I got a free mini-tour. Island Beauty is an EXCELLENT summer read that is sure to leave you satisfied at its completion.
