Anu Nadim has worked for the past four years remaking her life in Abaco after leaving London. Only a few know the reason why. And now her simple world is going to change again, but she is not sure she wants to, or even can, let anyone in. When Jonah enters her life, she finds herself falling in love and slowly letting go of past fears.
Jonah Brown is a former detective from Alaska. He decided to leave the force after a drug bust went wrong. His friend was killed, and he was wounded. Now, he is looking for the simple life and trying his hand at photography. But when he sees the beauty that lives across the bay from him, he cannot seem to get her out of his mind.
While Jonah wonders how Anu came to be on an island alone, they become closer and begin to learn about why each is there. Yet, conflict stands in the way with the making of a drug run gone sour and a hurricane that invades the island. Just what else can happen and will it keep them apart or bring them closer together?
Eventide is an awesome read. I felt like I was on a vacation in the Bahamas! Such passion and excitement are within the pages of Ms. Ali’s book.

If you are looking for a respite from your everyday read, then take a mind vacation with Ms. Ali’s Eventide, you will not be sorry you did.
