Miffed that vacation plans with her chronically absent boyfriend Jenks Jenkins have gone awry, she accepts a job in Baja. So what if she and her friend Jan are spectacularly unqualified to take her yacht on a thousand mile cruise in the eastern Pacific Ocean in the middle of hurricane season? Hiring a handsome, if somewhat fishy captain for the trip might keep them off the rocks, but probably won t do the same for her future with Jenks.
Meanwhile, a little eye candy on board can't be all bad. Hetta's unmanageable independence impels her to tackle the very profitable, if environmentally and politically incorrect project south of the border. True to form, her irreverent nature and disregard for danger soon swamps her in a sea of inconvenient bodies, illegal aliens, a pesky whale, and a menacing Mexican machinator.

What a delightful little tale. Take a boat trip to San Carlos, Baha, Mexico at the tale end of hurricane season. Tell a San Carlos afficionado to “stuff it”, and hide in the mangroves. Must say I enjoyed this one more than the first and am still willing to try a few more. 4.5 stars.
