"Ship Watch is the closest you’ll come to breathing the rarified air of the Southern aristocracy. Grab your cocktail of choice and settle in for excess and exes, second chances, and at least one epic Julia Sugarbaker-style setting-things-to-right takedown."
- Jeffrey Dale Lofton  
Award-winning author of Red Clay Suzie
