 Liz and Garrett had enjoyed a year together sailing the seas since he declared his semi-retirement. Suddenly, Garrett surprised his wife in setting sail in a new direction...One which he had been longing for - or so she thought. The adventures begin from the very beginning of their arrival. Old memories arise to gaunt them. Could their relationship withstand the developing events? Can a marriage of 28 joy-filled years crumble with these unfolding events? What first appeared as an enticing, glamorous object, soon became a menacing,  horrendous nightmare. This fast-paced novel keeps the reader anxiously turning pages. It was one I could not put down until it was finished. The reader was kept in suspense until almost the last page. There were intimate scenes but not intimate enough to place it past a PG rating. The novel was very well-written. It defined the characters in a way one felt one knew them.  The various surroundings and scenes were described in a way the reader could easily place himself/herself as being there. The title and cover portray the story quite well. The only problem I had with the story was in the way a scene sometimes came to a sudden stop then abruptly began the next. However that was a minor distraction.  However, because of that, my review of this book offers a Four and a Half Stars rating. This book was gifted to me by the author for an honest book review, of which I have given.
