Overview

Joe loves Gina. It's her life of fame as a singer that he hates, especially when it explodes in murder. Gina's musician brother has been killed, and when Joe's name is ruined by the scandal, he asks for a divorce. Gina runs away to Lyric, her Pacific island hideaway--a place where passion is sure to ignite the tropical nights, and when Joe follows her, he will make sure that nothing can stop their love again.

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)

This story is a pretty good story but is very slow. I wanted to skip pages just to get to the point of the story. This author seems to do this a lot with her stories but this one was the worst with taking forever to get into it.

The character and location descriptions were amazing and made you feel like you were in Tahiti and knew the characters. I found myself checking to see how many pages were left, and there were always several hundred. I finally had to skip to the end because I was tired of reading, and wanted to know whodunit. I enjoy Mrs. Craft's work and will continue to support her.
