Overview

"Ms Craft has used her talent to create a lush paradise as the backdrop for this romantic who-dunnit that will leave the reader in delicious anticipation from the first ripple to the last tidal wave of this literary love cruise."--Romantic Times Book ReviewGina Campbell, a top-of-the-charts singer-songwriter is trying to deal with the murder of her brother and the breakup of her marriage to Joe Dauterive, a cop. When he asked for a a divorce, she fled to her island in the South Seas, Lyric, and it is there that Joe finds her after learning that her life is in danger. It adds to the stress that her ex-husband and manager is on the island and may be trying to kill her. The mystery of the Tarot cards, madness and intrigue all come together to threaten Gina. But Joe is determined that nothing will stop their love this time.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
LAPD detective Joe Deauterive was married to Jasmyn. His college pal, record mogul Carson Campbell, was married to singing star Stell Keeling. Carson's adopted sister, Gina, another pop diva, was married to her manager, Paul Winslow. Shuffle the deck and Jasmyn ends up married to Carson while Gina ends up with Joe. Then, Carson is killed in a suspicious car crash on his South Seas resort island of Lyric and some vague suspicions drive a rift between Gina and Joe. While the island setting is lush, well researched, and evocative, the narrative is weighed down all the way to the killer's wildly improbable confession. The tension provided by Joe's investigation is here, but there is little suspense over Joe and Gina's reconciliation--for them, it's love at first sight, part two. All in all, a confused read that isn't helped by Craft's (The Black Pearl) occasionally awkward writing: "It was Jasmyn, sweetheart, that Carr spoke of finding out he couldn't trust to protect him." (July)
