SunbakedBook - 2017
Around two o'clock in the morning with a glass of red wine in her hand, and a few hours after her cheating husband had cleared out, Nina bought a house off the internet on a sunny Caribbean island she'd never heard of before. A week lager she was on a plane to Pineapple Cay. Things seemed to get off to a good start. Nina's new hometown is the charming village of Coconut Cove, with its narrow lanes lined with candy coloured houses and gardens overflowing with tropical flowers. Her back yard is a white sand beach and the mesmerizing turquoise sea. Her next door neighbour is the handsome Ted Matthews, owner of a fishing lodge. She's invited to a glamorous dinner party at the ocean hideaway of a famous musician. But local big shot Barry Bassett has his eye on Nina's cozy little beach cottage with the aim of tearing it down to build condos. When Barry's obnoxious wife Tiffany goes missing along with a priceless jeweled necklace, Nina finds herself sitting across a desk from the very serious chief of police, Blue Roker, and wondering how her day dream of easy living in the islands got so far off track so quickly.
