Good Beach Read
Much of this book takes place either in the water, on a Caribbean island, or on a yacht. Combine that with romance, intrigue, mythical mystery, and lots of good-versus-evil action (all of which resolve neatly in the end), and you've got a recipe for a good vacation thriller. (As long as you don't mind a little blood and guts along with your pina colada.) If you enjoy Nora Roberts's Independent Woman Heroines (doesn't need a man, doesn't want a man, especially not--well, OK, as long as you're here, interested, rich , and gorgeous), then you'll like the main character here. But be prepared. To put up with. Some very. Choppy. Style.
