Local historical romance author Maggie FitzRoy enjoys writing stories that whisk readers back into the past, where love is an adventure. The Ponte Vedra Beach resident’s new novel, “Beacon Beach,” transports them to Cape May, New Jersey in the summer of 1886. Maggie – a former journalist for The Florida Times-Union and First Coast Magazine – did extensive research and interviewed historians to portray the era as accurately as possible.

“‘Beacon Beach’ is a love story, involving mystery, reinvention, redemption and riveting romantic attraction. It’s a great beach book, but also a story that can be enjoyed any time of the year as a romantic escape into the past,” says FitzRoy.

In “The Merchant of Death is Dead,” pop historian, asset manager, and newspaper columnist Scott A. Grant shares some of his favorite published columns. Stories in the book include those of inventor Alfred Nobel, writer Zora Neale Hurston, football player Deacon Jones, surgeon John Snow, adventurer Annie Edson Taylor, visionary Benjamin Franklin, swimmer Gertrude Ederle, clothing designer Tommy Hilfiger, General James Doolittle, golfers Johnny Miller and Jack Nicklaus, athletes “Bullet” Bob Hayes and Mack Robinson, and First Lady Frances Cleveland, plus events such as the discovery of the South Pole, Nazi spies landing on a north Florida beach, and economic bubbles through the years.

Both books will be a delight for any reader and will make great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and upcoming holidays.
