Denise Hunter’s Nantucket Love Stories are brilliant – I have loved each one and will reread them over and over again! Do not miss these books I hope you enjoy this insight into Sweetpea and Harbormaster.
Over to you, Denise:~
Sabrina Kincaid is a willowy brunette, frequently seen wearing a ponytail, especially when she’s jogging the streets of Nantucket or waitressing at the Cobblestone Cafe. She earned her nickname “The Ice Princess” with her business-only approach to life, and only makes herself vulnerable to others when she’s hiding safely behind a screen name.
Sabrina is very independent, capable, and efficient. However, when she messes up, she had difficulty forgiving herself or imagining that others could forgive her. After having her trust betrayed once before, she’s afraid to trust again, but Tucker makes it awfully tempting.
Quirk (if any)
Sabrina is scared to death of bees and subscribes to “Word of the day”. She also wears a charm bracelet to remind her to guard her heart.
Your inspiration for the character
Christ was the inspiration for Tucker. In the entire Nantucket series, the heroes represent Christ and the way he loves us. It’s been inspiring to contemplate how vast, complete, patient, and fervent God’s love for us is!
Sabrina wasn’t a jogger in my first (and third and fourth) draft. During the editing stage, my editor (Ami McConnell) suggested she take up the excercise, and I thought it was a great way to show the reader more of beautiful Nantucket, among other things. Strangely enough, Sabrina didn’t even complain.
The charm bracelet was also added during edits and came to be an integral part of who Sabrina is. For the cover art, they couldn’t find a usable photo of a charm bracelet, so Thomas Nelson’s cover artist Kristen Vasgaard) went to a hobby store, bought all the right charms, assembled it, took a photo, and worked it into the cover art. Amazing!
