Will providence intervene and bring them together? Or will danger surface on a seemingly innocent path? Find out in Cole Bay Band, the second novel in the Happy Bay trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars another quick and easy read May 17, 2013

I read and enjoyed the first book in this triolgy and now look forward to the next/last. This too, was a quick and easy read, a lot of plot twists to keep you interested. I thought the first was well written but you can tell the author has developed his his writting craft and taking it to the next level.I'm sure the he will excel in the next book.
Been to St Martin but missed Happy Bay (again) so I guess I gotta go back ...... might even try sunbathing in the ....or just try the food at the lolo

4.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first! March 10, 2013
The second book, "Cole Bay Band" by T. Stelma is even better than "Happy Bay". Well written with a good plot. I finished it in a day! Can't wait for the third book in this trilogy!

1.0 out of 5 stars but as much as I LOVE the island of St Maarten July 17, 2014
By Marge T
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sorry, but as much as I LOVE the island of St Maarten, this book is a poor example of anything written relating to the island. It is in fact poorly written, disjointed, and difficult to follow. It's like the author felt it was necessary to include lost loves, sex, drugs, alcohol, gay and lesbian characters and any other areas that might raise eyebrows in order to sell the book. A total waste of time and money in my view. I wish I had not bothered with it!

good beach read, especially if you're familiar with the island of St. Maarten!!!!!
Not necessarily a page turner, but intertaining

More About the Author

Sandy Bennett married too young. She was on her own and lonesome, and married the first guy that asked her. Not that Don wasn't good at the hard sell. He wooed, wined, and dined her...she was swept off her feet by the charming former college football star.

But there were flies in the ointment; two kids he desperately wanted custody of, a floundering career, an increasing emotional distance. One single event that could have eventually turned into a sad news story sent her instead on a wild Caribbean adventure. It was there in St. Martin that Sandy began to find herself. But little did she know the turmoil she had left behind; a living, breathing threat to her well-being and new life.

Follow Sandy's journey to self-discovery in paradise...a place she comes to love called Happy Bay.

Her story continues in Cole Bay Band and the newly released third novel Sandy Ground.

A review from a St. Martin resident:

A lot of my Facebook friends (both on the island and visitors) have been talking about this book called Sandy Ground. "What's it about?" I asked. "Is it a travelogue?" No, they told me. They are novels. "They?" Yes, there are three of them, all novels, and all set in St. Martin. The titles are metaphors, but they are filled with the sights, sounds, and feel of our favorite place on earth.

My business keeps me very busy, but I had to see why they loved these books so much. So I downloaded Happy Bay and put some time aside to read it. I had trouble getting back to work. I could not put it down! Seeing my home through the eyes of a young woman that had never been here gave me a new perspective on how special St. Martin is to me and many others.

I felt as if I had become Sandy. I laughed her laugh and cried her tears. I could not wait to start Cole Bay Band and am halfway through it as I write. What an adventure and love story! Mr. Stelma has a knack for creating characters you can't help but love (or hate). He understands women and the problems they face and the message of faith and love is very strong.

I have the advantage of going to the places Sandy and the other characters visit here anytime, but these books are a great escape for those counting the days to return or make their first visit. There is mystery and suspense, humor and grace, indomitable spirit rooted in feminism...I can't say enough about the writing.

I have heard Sandy Ground holds terrific climaxes. I can't wait to see how things turn out for Sandy, Jimmy, and the others.

I want to recommend these books to anyone that loves our island and everyone that loves this adventure we call life.
