    Four years ago Penelope Hoffstra got an offer she couldn’t

    Four years ago Penelope Hoffstra got an offer she couldn’t refuse, a struggling borderline unethical lawyer she finds herself in the Miami airport when a strange man approaches her and offers her a new life. She never looked back. She found herself the manager of a prime resort on the Virgin Island of St. John, her ineptness however has followed her to her new career as well as she skims life on her island. But there’s change coming and it isn’t good as the natives get restless nearing the anniversary of a terrible event from 1733 and puts into motion an inevitable string of events that will again bring Pen change. But will this change set her free or will it leave her “Adrift on St. John”.
    Bestselling author Rebecca M. Hale (The Curios and Cats series) begins a new series set in the beautiful US Virgin Islands, the first one on St. John where she takes me through a myriad of events that lead me to more questions than answers as she gives me snippets of the lives of her characters that will lead me to the answers if only I’m careful enough to catch all the clues. She adds in a lot of local history to make the read quite interesting and that also adds to the mysteries between the pages. She introduces me to real characters of characters that seem on the surface more caricature than real until she decides to peel the layers and let me look inside. Her dialogue is a mix of English and Island jive that really fits the read and adds more local color to the novel.
    Fans of cozy mysteries will like this although it’s not really cozy enough for a cozy and there’s no murder just mayhem. Fans of Hank Phillip Ryan’s Charlotte McNalley novels will also like this.
    Thank you Ms. Hale for an interesting trip to the Islands and I look forward to my next.

    I found it difficult to get into the story. Didn't really hold my interest as I couldn't ever finish the book.
