Volusia Reads Online Book Club

 Murphy Shepherd is a man with many secrets. When he pulls a beautiful woman named Summer out of Florida's Intracoastal Waterway, Murph is pulled into the dark and dangerous world of modern-day slavery. He, Summer, and some unexpected friends race against the clock to find her missing daughter.
