Mustique Island by Sarah McCoy

Pub date: May 10, 2022

About The Book:

It’s January 1972 but the sun is white hot when Willy May Michael’s boat first kisses the dock of Mustique Island. Tucked into the southernmost curve of the Caribbean, Mustique is a private island that has become a haven for the wealthy and privileged. Its owner is the eccentric British playboy Colin Tennant, who is determined to turn this speck of white sand into a luxurious neo-colonial retreat for his rich friends and into a royal court in exile for the Queen’s rebellious sister, Princess Margaret—one where Her Royal Highness can skinny dip, party, and entertain lovers away from the public eye.

Willy May, a former beauty queen from Texas—who is also no stranger to marital scandals—seeks out Mustique for its peaceful isolation. Determined to rebuild her life and her relationships with her two daughters, Hilly, a model, and Joanne, a musician, she constructs a fanciful white beach house across the island from Princess Margaret—and finds herself pulled into the island’s inner circle of aristocrats, rock stars, and hangers-on.

When Willy May’s daughters arrive, they discover that beneath its veneer of decadence, Mustique has a dark side, and like sand caught in the undertow, their mother-daughter story will shift and resettle in ways they never could have imagined. 


Imagine this.. it’s the early 70’s ☮️…a private Caribbean island that is invitation only…if you would like to live there you must be approved…by the owners..😬

There are 3 requirements: Must be wealthy πŸ’° …attractive πŸ‘±‍♀️πŸ‘ …and able to keep your lips sealed 🀐..What happens at Mustique Island 🏝 stays there! 🀫

Your neighbor is a Princess πŸ‘Έ… your other neighbor is a rock star… did someone say Mick??? Yes..that Mick!! 😍😳🀭

Well this all fit the bill for a newly divoriced Willy May. After a messy divorce.. and the death of her ex husband..πŸ€”πŸ˜¬…Willie Mae was ready to escape the speculations and gossip. Luckily she had an “in” to Mustique Island and off she went. 🏝
