Leila Stanford, daytime “soap” actress, is awaiting the outcome of negotiations for renewal of her contract. She decides to take a sailing holiday on the boat belonging to her and sister, Kate. Leila’s mistake is to take family friend and fugitive from justice, the light-fingered Gabe Alexander along as crew, because now she can’t get rid of him! When they arrive at Puerto Felice, Leila tries to shed Gabe, but he is having none of it. After all, unless he can con someone or steal a fat wallet, he has nowhere else to stay but on the boat with Leila – and food. Unbeknownst to them, a hurricane is bearing down on the harbour.
A gorgeous yacht sails into the harbour bringing with it mystery, death and the man–Leila hopes–of her dreams, captain Ari Sterns. That evening the yacht, “Pilgrim,” catches on fire. Leila gives Ari sanctuary on her boat, displacing Gabe who is wildly jealous, as he has to give up his bed–the settee– and sleep in the hammock on deck.
The children of a family whose boat is also moored in the harbour, go out trick or treating and are the witnesses to a the presence on the “Pilgrim” of a man, well known in the community, who is later found to have burned to death in the fire.
The mystery deepens with the machinations of a suspicious trio who are trying to get Ari to dive for them. The story is that a boat of theirs went down previously and they want their belongings back, but what are they really after?
This well-written and paced story is very easy to read and most enjoyable; the characters are likable and the ending is an absolute hoot!
Available only as an e-book, and excellent value at $2.99
As with the first book in the sailing trilogy she draws on her own cruising experience to make the backdrop of the book a sailing community in Mexico. There's enough sophisticated sailing information to make the seasoned mariner like the read, but not so much that someone without that knowledge is bored.
Who can't relate to warm blue waters and sunny skies, but the search for a killer is made tenser by the impending hurricane that threatens this paradise. Dahlke then ups the ante by plunging her heroine and hunky, sexy hero into the churning waters of the storm.
This is an entertaining, exciting read with just enough romance to make your toes curl and enough action to keep you up all night reading it.
Leila has a plan for Gabe, and for Ari which she believes will take care of her personal and career problems. She is an actress on a soap opera and is enjoying time off while her agent negotiates her new contract. Gabe is a fugitive who has his own plan for Leila as well, and it is nothing like the one she has for him. Ari just wants to be normal, but realizes that it is just not that easy, especially when his yacht burns to the hull shortly after his arrival in Mexico. Join these characters that merge into a tight knit group to survive attempted kidnappings, a murder investigation, and the rescue of a surprising victim.
This is the second book in a trilogy, the first being A Dangerous Harbor. I decided to read the first book so that I could understand more about the character development and I recommend it for that reason and also because it is also a fantastic story. The female characters in both books are beautiful women who are sisters and they have lots of courage and determination, which sometimes causes grief for the men in their lives. If you enjoy strong female characters, you will not be disappointed! I cannot wait for number three.
