Summary of the Book:
Cal’s a hapless watchmaker. Marina’s a beautiful scuba instructor. They were friends as kids. Now, not so much. Together they’ll solve the secret of Rosalita Flats. If the sharks don’t get them first.
The Secret of Rosalita Flats is about a man trying to unload the football-shaped house he inherited, while dodging the backwater Blacktip Island’s quirky collection of con artists, smugglers and other ne’er-do-wells: an ornery housekeeper who refuses to be fired, a rum-soaked attorney with his own agenda, a chair-wielding resort manager who thinks he’s an avenging angel, and a self-styled psychic who may be able to see the future. There’s also a mysterious someone—or something—trying to scare Cal off the island. Cal has to figure out what his old man was mixed up in, fast, if he’s to sell the house and get off the crazy little rock alive.
Written with Hiaasen-esque humor, The Secret of Rosalita Flats is a beguiling mystery for anyone who’s ever dreamed of chucking it all and running off to the Caribbean. From the author of the award-finalist Blacktip Island.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I am always up for a good mystery. Cal goes to a house that he inherited from his father and he knew something was from the moment he arrived. That story does start off a bit slow to start but once it gets rolling it is wonderful. The cast of characters, descriptions of the locations and the intrigue pulls the reader in and does not let go until the last page is turned. It is so crazy and intense at times.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
