Ep 114: Sarah McCoy on Mustique Island’s  Glamour, Royalty, Secrets, and Scandal

Sarah McCoy is back on the podcast this week to discuss her new novel Mustique Island, a compulsive, sun-splashed voyage of self-discovery with a wealthy divorcee and her two headstrong daughters in 1970s Mustique, the world’s most exclusive private island, where Princess Margaret and Mick Jagger were regulars and long-held secrets are the buried treasures.



“Glamorous, scandalous, and wholly immersive in a way that will keep you turning pages long after the sun has set, Mustique Island is a captivating story of mothers and daughters told with adventurous spirit and heart. Toss this in your beach bag and your summer reading is set.”
Steven Rowley, bestselling author of The Guncle
