“A quintessential summer read.” Marie Claire
 
A warm and wonderfully vivid novel about taking second chances—in life and in the sea
 
One summer day on the beach in Florida, two extraordinary things happen to Maeve Donnelly. First, she is kissed by Daniel, the boy of her dreams. Then, she is bitten by a blacktip shark.
 
Eighteen years later, Maeve has thrown herself into her work as a world-traveling marine biologist discovering more about the minds of misunderstood sharks. But when Maeve returns home to the legendarily charming and eccentric Hotel of the Muses where she was raised by her grandmother, she finds more than just the blood orange sunsets and key lime pies she’s missed waiting for her.
 
While Maeve has always been fearless in the water, on land she is indecisive. A chance meeting on the beach with a plucky, irresistible little girl who is just as fascinated by the ocean as Maeve was growing up leaves her at a crossroads: Should she re-kindle her romance with Daniel, the first love she left behind when she dove into her work? Or indulge in a new romance with her colleague, Nicholas, who turns up in her hometown to investigate an illegal shark-finning operation?   
 
Set against the intoxicating backdrop of palm trees, calypso bands, and perfect ocean views, The Shark Club is a story of the mysterious passions of one woman’s life: her first love and new love; the sea and sharks that inhabit it.

Entre palmeras y puestas de sol de postal, una maravillosa y fresca novela sobre un encantador hotel, amor, pérdida y segundas oportunidades en la vida y en el mar.

Durante un día de playa en Florida en 1988 Maeve Donnelly vive dos momentos extraordinarios: primero, Daniel, el chico de sus sueños, la besa; segundo, un tiburón de puntas negras la muerde. Dieciocho años más tarde, y convertida en una reconocida bióloga marina, Maeve regresa al excéntrico hotel regentado por su abuela en la idílica isla en la que creció.

Y allí descubre algo más que los atardeceres de ensueño y las tartas de lima que tanto ha echado de menos. Un encuentro fortuito la devuelve a una inesperada encrucijada: ¿será capaz de perdonar a Daniel, el primer amor que dejó atrás, sus errores de juventud y retomar su historia? ¿O debe tomar en serio lo que comienza a sentir por Nicholas, el guapo colega que comparte su pasión por el océano?
