During the villa's opening weekend, Sabrina discovers the body of a bride murdered on the eve of her wedding to the villa owner. The case gives the police a new reason to scrutinize Sabrina and her business, which they suggest provides inadequate security for its guests and should lose its license. Unless Sabrina can show the bride's murder was unrelated to her or her business, her life on St. John will be over before sundown.
In order to clear her name and salvage her business, Sabrina dives into the deep end of an investigation riddled with infidelity, fraud, identity theft, and conspiracy in Permanent Sunset, the second in C. Michele Dorsey's riveting mystery series.

Sabrina Salter’s enormous charm, as well as her grace under duress, is on full display in Dorsey’s outstanding sequel to 2015’s No Virgin Island. Duress comes in waves as she and her partner in her rental property business on St. John in the Virgin Islands, Henry Whitman, prepare a recent acquisition, the ostentatious Villa Nirvana, for a splashy wedding. Sean Keating, scion of Keating Construction, is set to marry the beautiful, business-savvy, yet mysterious Elena Rodriguez. Tensions naturally run high as Elena resists signing the proffered prenuptial contract. The night before the big day, everybody goes to bed angry. The next morning, but for the absence of the bride, everything is picture-perfect with a profusion of gardenias and twinkle lights timed to alight amid the sunset ceremony. Sabrina eventually finds the bride floating dead in the ocean, and the ensuing mystery, chockablock with unanticipated plot twists, complex supporting characters, and terrific dialogue, makes for mighty good page-turning fun.
