The Paradise Table, A Novel

by Maryann Ridini Spencer

“The Paradise Table is another plumeria-laced ‘Kate Grace’ mystery from talented writer Maryann Ridini Spencer. In this book that follows best-selling Lady in the Window, Spencer again magically weaves together the breathtaking beauty and spirituality of Kauai, miracles, and the power of faith and love into an intriguing quest for the truth. When violent dreams become reality in this peaceful island paradise, newlywed Kate unearths disturbing secrets that will change everyone’s lives, causing her to embark on a sometimes heartbreaking and shocking path. The Paradise Table is not just another mystery—it is a heartwarming validation of self-trust, friendship, love, and healing.”
