Rachael O'Brien's summer starts with a promising trip to England with her eccentric grandmother, her dad's long-time assistant, and her very good-looking, very gay friend, Travis. She thinks that distancing herself from the southern men she's developed an appetite for is the emotional breather she needs. But for Rachael O'Brien, nothing is ever simple. An amethyst oyster brooch with a scandalous past leads her into trouble far from home.
Discovering that she has been followed across the Atlantic by a mysterious agent, surviving British culinary challenges becomes the least of Rachael's worries. After hotel rooms are ransacked and Dad's assistant is detained by Scotland Yard, Rachael and Travis buy time and escape down the River Thames in a narrow boat.
With thugs in pursuit and an unexpected shipmate aboard, Rachael's expedition crashes across England as she rushes to uncover the stunning secrets embedded inside the golden brooch in Paisley Ray's Toad in the Hole.

I love the fun action of the 80's in the South. College is always interesting, but this is a real romp.
I love the different characters in the story and their totally different personalities all brought together.
The reader brings the story to life. Love the accents and the tone of her voice.
