Wander by Victoria Allman


 Wander, through the islands in search of the father she never knew and one she might not want to get to know when she and Sam, a handsome treasure collector who seems to know her father and not like him much, dig up stories of the past that may explain why her father disappeared all those years ago. 

Kevyn Morgan, an antiques restorer from Savannah, has just discovered her father, Alex, isn’t as dead as she’d thought for the past 30 years, but has been living in the Caribbean searching for sunken treasure. With confusing thoughts of abandonment and intrigue, she sails her boat, Wander, through the islands in search of the father she never knew and one she might not want to get to know when she and Sam, a handsome treasure collector who seems to know her father and not like him much, dig up stories of the past that may explain why her father disappeared all those years ago.
          
The rough waters of navigating a relationship with both Sam and Alex are nothing compared to the storm of danger she finds herself in while sailing through paradise.
