The plot was not bad but the heroine was not much of a heroine in my opinion. She is insecure, immature and takes total advantage of her sister. Then when her sister is hurt and the so-called heroine realizes her life is in danger, does she exercise any discretion whatsoever during her investigation? Nope, she blunders her way through, talking to people indiscriminately with no thought to anyone's safety, including her own. It is only through sheer dumb luck that she survives. It is certainly not because of any competence or skill on her part.
I will not read any more books in the series because the heroine is not credible as an investigator or a heroine.
The story picks up with two newlyweds honeymooning in Barbados. Everything seems to be right in Cindy and Clint's world. They're in love with their whole lives ahead of them.
Then, Clint dies in a suspicious surfing accident one evening while Cindy is resting in their hotel room. Nothing about the circumstances seems to add up. From the sudden, mysterious stomach ailment that required Cindy to stay in the room on that evening, to the fact that Clint was an expert surfer and wouldn't have likely died in a surfing accident on relatively calm waters, something is amiss.
Devastated, Cindy returns from her honeymoon a widow. Not buying the story that the authorities are trying to sell her, she takes matters into her own hands. "Nancy Drew" is born.
Most of the book revolves around Cindy playing detective. She uncovers a lot of things that she didn't know about her husband...and some things that he didn't even know about himself. Eventually, she stumbles upon a controversial project that he was working on for his employer, DGB Oil.
All the while, Cindy is trying to fend off the attacks from Clint's family and friends. To say that they didn't support the marriage is putting it mildly. With the suspicious circumstances surrounding his death and the large life insurance policy that was recently purchased by Clint, they have plenty of reasons to question Cindy's innocence.
Meanwhile, her own family thinks that she is losing her mind. They want Cindy to quit chasing ghosts and return to her hometown, leaving this tragedy behind her.
In the end, Cindy gets to the bottom of what really happened. However, you have to be willing to suspend reality in order to believe how this story plays out. Cindy was practically made "junior deputy" by the FBI and given free reign to conduct an investigation with their behind the scenes support. It just wasn't realistic at all.
That being said, it was still an okay story. It was quick and entertaining enough. It isn't one that I'll re-read or one that will make a lasting impression. However, it was fine for passing a couple of hours. I liked it, but didn't love it.
How is she going to deal with this. Oh, less not forget the rumors that are going around, about her husband..Then she will have in laws to face back in New York who didn't want their son to marry. Then comes the question murder or suicide.
a lot is packed into his stories..I love them, and have all he has written so far
her husband is dead. Clint was a most experienced surfer and yet he died in the water.
Cindy questions everything and nothing adds up. As she explores further possibilities, her life
is in danger as is her loved ones. Cindy will not stop until she has the answers.
This was a good mystery - I found myself thinking "that's what I would do" with many of the
leads Cindy turned up. Pamela
