Ava Santori travels to St. Barts after learning that her estranged brother, Marco, died on a ship that went down in a hurricane. The circumstances are suspect and lawyers convince her to check it out. Dane Eriksen, the owner of Utoia, the fleet the doomed ship was a part of, is also searching for answers. Seemingly on opposite sides of a potential legal battle-Ava & Dane find themselves searching for the truth together and just maybe finding each other in the process.
A well-written, thriller plot. Unexpected character development. Romance is believable and doesn’t dominate the story completely. Will appeal to those who enjoy the Caribbean islands and lifestyle. 2003, 369 pages.
