From my point of view, it was great having the action take place (mostly) on a boat cruising the Sea of Cortez between Baja and Sonora since I have a daughter-in-law from Hermosillo and have visited San Carlos several times.
If you like boating, Mexicans and/or Mexican food, drinking copious amounts of wine and don't mind dealing with a wacky, wise-cracking 30-something who attracts disasters like honey attracts flies, then kick back and be prepared for a fun read.
After reading both books, I visited the author's website and learned from people commenting there that the first two books really were important for the backstory. So I broke my rule of never paying more than $2 for a Kindle book & purchased both, read them. then read #3 & 4 again. Now I'm really hooked. I will have to break my rule again to get #5 & 6, and the author is working on #7 due out this July. I just hope she doesn't stop writing.
But maybe at some point there should be one entitled "Just think of 99 ways to off Hetta". No I don't really want her dead but just thinking of ingenious ways to do it could be amusing & somewhat therapeutic.
A great read!
You REALLY want to read this one especially if you need a few belly laughs!!
Although the books are, for the most part, well-written, there is something that continues to plague me. I am forever reading kudos to the editors, at the end of books, when they don't look to me like they've even been edited. This series is mostly typos, which don't bother me quite as much as grammatical errors but I still think an "editor" would catch them. In addition to the typos, things like "pouring over a map" and "return back" should certainly stand out. I just don't get it. Based on the evident lack of qualifications for editors, these days, I certainly missed my calling because I could be a real one. "Who knew?"

book was nowhere near as good as T. Sea, which was written at a later time in Hetta's
life. I kept waiting for some real action and even when it came, about 45% into the book,
it was a bit wham/bang "comic cuts".
As another reviewer said, it seemed like the author was trying to pack in as many silly
quips, etc. between Hetta and her friend Jan, and the parrot, Trouble. Also, Hetta is
supposed to be intelligent with a good job as an engineer, but some of her actions were
I give is 2.5 stars and hope that books 4 and 5 will be better when I get round to reading them.
My Kindle told me that I was 67% of the way through the book before anything really happened and even then the the plot was lame with any build up in the story spoiled by too easy solutions. The most interesting character was the parrot who seemed to have unbelievable abilities in tracking the femail lead across countries and desert to always appear just at the right time.
I will read more but can't recommend this one.
Always an excellent tale well written with a good plot and humour too. Hetta Coffey is one unique lady! We follow her into yet another adventure and more - as the title says - trouble.
Keep them coming Jinx Schwartz, I will never tire of your stories.
Can't help feeling that perhaps Schwarz tries a little too hard with the Hetta character though.
