Mix dry wit with a juicy corpse and let it simmer over a red hot romance to serve up a wicked comedy.
Curious, quirky, crisis consultant Victoria Douglas needs a vacation, and to learn to keep her sassy mouth shut. Instead, she’s gunning a stolen SUV up a mountain with beer cans and bug spray as her only weapons in a fight for survival. She and her investigative reporter friend, Julie Tran, have landed in a Caribbean vacation crap-sandwich bursting with murder, narcotics, and one gorgeous piece of man-flesh.
College flame, Alex Marshall, professed his love and disappeared without a trace. Twelve years later he materializes at Victoria’s resort on St. Kitts and he’s got more charm and sex appeal than ever. Tingling lady bits and long-buried feelings aside, Victoria discovers she and Julie are at the center of a criminal conspiracy that stretches across two continents. They’ve got one chance to prove their innocence before competing nefarious factions feed them to the fish…or worse. Victoria has to decide just how far she is willing to go to save her life and mend her heart.
If I hadn’t been fighting for my life with beer cans, bug spray, and pent-up aggression as my only weapons, you probably wouldn't want to read about me. After all, a thirty-something woman with two cats and a boss who can’t keep his hands off his crotch is rarely worth noticing. But, this woman was gunning a stolen SUV up a mountain goat path with a monkey in the back seat screeching “Kek-kek-kek.” His owner was screaming something about his own head colliding with the roof. My friend Julie was in the passenger’s seat ordering me to slow down. Good thing I was accustomed to people complaining about my driving because we had much larger issues than my dislike for the brake pedal.
I will DEFINITELY be reading the next book in this series! I have to know what happens to Victoria and her crazy, long-lost lover!
Victoria decides she needs a vacation. Her first clue that vacation was not going to go as planned is when she tries to help stop an escaped criminal as soon as she gets to her Caribbean Island getaway. Now that she's on a bad guy's radar he's trying to take her take down. When he ends up dead, she's the first suspect! Throw in a complicated love story full of heartbreak and disappointment with an ex-lover who is up to his eyeballs in missing DEA agents and is in the possession of something valuable to the Columbian drug cartel and you've got a recipe for vacation disaster!
The banter between Victoria and her old flame, Alex is one of the best parts of this book for me. The characters are well developed and will have you laughing out loud. The mix of Victoria's dry wit and Alex's seriousness proves that opposites do attract and that some flames will burn forever. Poor Victoria cannot catch a break during her island adventure but there is never a dull moment in this story! With lots of double-dealing and plot twists, you'll be hanging on the edge until the very end.
I cannot wait to read the rest of this series!!
