The first chance Lily Banyon could leave her hometown of Coral Beach, Florida she fled. It is several years later and she has become a highly regarded marine biologist renowned for her international work on coral reefs while working for the prestigious Marine Center in Massachusetts............................ Coral Beach is in the midst of a controversy between the environmental leaning Mayor Sean McDermott and the business development leaning council over the reef. When the advisor Dr. Lesensky becomes deathly ill, the town obtains the assistance of the Marine Center to determine the health of the reef. Over her objection, a reluctant Lily is sent home to complete the study........................ Immediately, Sean and Lily send attraction sparks to each other that could ignite the southeast. Both have secretly loved each other since their teen days, but circumstances and a lack of confidence has kept them from connecting. As they fall in love as adults someone tries to sabotage her efforts in favor of development regardless of the findings................................. NIGHT SWIMMING is a pleasant contemporary romance that entertains on several levels besides the lead couple's skirmishes that hide their love for one another. Two engaging additional subplots (the health of reefs and the high school age 'relationship' between Lily and Sean told in flashbacks) add leagues of depth. The villain is too greedy and sleazy to take seriously hurting the meaningful debate between environment and development. Still sub-genre fans will appreciate Laura Moore's fine tale..................... Harriet Klausner

Ten years ago Lily Bannon escaped her small town home to go to college, never looking back; but now she is forced to return. The coral reefs that gave the town its name are being threatened by developers, and her skills as a marine biologist are the only thing standing between man's greed and nature's beauty. ........ In her mission, Lily finds an ally in the form of the man she has loved and never forgotten, sheriff Sean McDermott. The two try to conceal their love and lust behind animosity, but to no avail. Just as they are finding love again, her primary goal is threatened by man and nature both. A life and death struggle ensues, and love is the lifeline that may not be strong enough to save Lily from the dire consequences of her willingness to risk all for her cause. .......... ***** Revealing a deep love of nature and appreciation for the dynamics of human conflict, Laura Moore tells a compelling story that will hold readers' attention from cover to cover. She develops her story well and realistically with dynamic characters who spring off the page. *****
