Book Description:

Kathleen Cassidy's transition
from uptight Boston babe to barefoot island warrior begins with a bang when her
newly inherited sleek go-fast boat explodes. Soon the intrepid redhead is
questioning her father's death under the watchful eyes of a rugged Miccosukee
undercover ICE agent who is definitely not her type, an attractive marine
archeologist who definitely is her type and perhaps…a killer.

Cassidy is plainly a fish out of
water and way down on her luck when she arrives on Paradise Key to claim her
inheritance, a sleek go-fast boat and a battered old bar called the 'Gator
Hole. Items bequeathed by the father she barely remembers, a man her mother
referred to as Wild Bill—when she was being kind.

Joe Scipio, ICE agent and
full-blooded Florida Miccosukee lives on his boat docked behind the Gator Hole.
Although he'd promised her father to look after Cassidy, he considers the
headstrong beauty supremely unsuited for the Keys lifestyle. He constantly
urges her to return to Boston where she belongs. To no avail.

Mystery, love, humor and a cast
of wacky Keys characters come together in this wildly entertaining novel.


 “Go back to Boston, Cassidy. Do yourself a
favor and sell me the bar and the land. Just take the money and run.”

“The name isn’t
Cassidy,” I muttered for the one thousandth time. “Call me Kathleen or don’t
bother to call me.” 

Joe Scipio had
planted his six-foot-three frame on the stool opposite me. I stood safely
behind the bar—separated from him by a width of approximately three feet and
seven inches. Everything about Joe Scipio intimidated me. When I saw him walk
through the door, my whole body went into a weird vibrate mode. Like my heart
started to dance. And my brain leapt into a tumbling team routine. 

Not that I’d
ever let him know how he affected me. I’d never met a man like him before. Not
one Joe Scipio doppelganger lived in my Boston neighborhood.

I'd just opened
the Gator Hole for the day. It was only a few minutes after eleven in the
morning, and in my opinion way too early for people to be drinking anything
other than lemonade, my beverage of choice. But I've learned they did things
differently in the Florida Keys, especially here in Paradise Key.

My name is
Kathleen Ann Cassidy. I inherited what is fondly referred to in these parts as
"The Hole," shortly after Justin, my fiancé of three years ran off to
Barbados with my best friend Ashley Finegold.
