About: THE SEASIDE CAFE: Hospital psychiatric social worker Kayana Johnson is living her best life.  She is the envy of most women in Atlanta.  She lives in a mini-mansion with her renowned surgeon-husband, but gives it all up when she discovers he has been having an affair with one of his colleagues. She returns to Coates Island, North Carolina to help her brother run the family-owned Seaside Café,  moves into the apartment above the restaurant while sharing cooking duties, and befriends two vacationing women that share her love of books, and encounters a man destined to change her future. What I’m looking for in my ideal reader…
