About the Book

The Goodbye Lie - first novel in the Goodbye Lie series

Where Little House on the Prairie meets Gone With The Wind ...   


Men will die for Breelan Dunnigan. The heart-wrenching romance and unexpected drama don't stop until the last page of The Goodbye Lie, Jane Marie Malcolm's first installment in her mystery-romance series, set in 1882 on Florida's Amelia Island. An aspiring writer, Breelan is literally swept away, first by a tornado at the beach and then a stranger, who steps into her life and into her soul. Escape to New York City brings new love, but when Breelan returns to Fernandina, her small town island home in the deep South, her existence has turned upside down. Strong Irish bonds and values are soon pitted against passion, jealousy and murder in this richly ripe saga. Readers will rejoice in the clever twists of plot. Abundantly layered personalities, late Victorian conventions and gentle humor flavor up the mix of epic romance, treachery and glory. This is only the beginning of The Goodbye Lie series as it continues with Amelia Island's Velvet Undertow and Amelia Island's Mark of a Man, more Fernandina fancies ...


Amelia Island's VELVET UNDERTOW, The Goodbye Lie Series - Carolena Dunnigan witnesses the unthinkable and her safe, secure life on Amelia Island, Florida turns to ashes. Vowing to save her siblings, she seeks work and is lured to Charleston, South Carolina. Lust, love, and decades of lies do fierce battle, driving her into Pennsylvania's deadly Johnstown Flood of 1889. It scours away secrets of the past, but will anyone survive the churning undertow of it all?

"Engaging historical romance … Known to her admirers as GRACIOUS JANE MARIE [of], the author has written a delightful story with THE GOODBYE LIE. Set in the late 1800's …, the story takes off to far away shores-and far away desires, lies, and deceit. I look forward to the next [novel in the series], VELVET UNDERTOW." - Jennifer Wardrip for
