Curious, quirky, crisis consultant Victoria Douglas needs a vacation, and to learn to keep her sassy mouth shut. Instead, she’s gunning a stolen SUV up a mountain with beer cans and bug spray as her only weapons in a fight for survival. She and her investigative reporter friend, Julie Tran, have landed in a Caribbean vacation crap-sandwich bursting with murder, narcotics, and one gorgeous piece of man-flesh.

Spattered with sarcasm, quick hilarious banter you will find yourself continually amused by the dynamic personality of Victoria.

This dyad is charming and makes for nonstop fun. When Victoria’s former love enters the picture the action, adventure and amusement triple. Wonderful characters matched with endless slapstick.
The characters dominate the narrative, however the narrative holds its own. Despite the insertion of hilarity the plot is a murder mystery filled with its share of twists and turns – keeping you guessing until the very end.
