Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Author Lee Ducote gave me a print copy of his book Waterproof for review. Waterproof was fun on so many levels. First, it is a treasure hunt story. Replete with pirates, voodoo women, and maritime intrigue. Next, it is the story of a romance decades in the making. Our heroes, childhood friends take many years to unite. Oops, I guess that could be a minor spoiler, but you learn that right away. Set in the bayous of Louisiana, Waterproof it is the story of a voodoo curse, tormenting a young woman in love, spanning more than a hundred years. There is action/adventure, romance, crime, intrigue, sex(romantic, not gratuitous), even some rock 'n' roll (no drugs). The multiple story lines weave through past and present seamlessly. Our heroes are well developed, sympathetic characters I found myself rooting for immediately. I wanted to scream at Spencer, (the main character) "TELL HER!". You'll see. On one level it is a story of trust and loyalty. On another, it is a story of coming to terms with the past. I find it hard to talk about any negatives with Waterproof. The story is tight and the characters are well developed. The setting for a treasure hunt is terrific, the bayou, and Cajun culture just plays so well with the story. It even sets itself up well for a sequel without resorting to a cliffhanger ending. I loved it. If you are in the mood for a treasure hunting, adventure romance, you will be hard pressed to find a better read than Waterproof by Lee Ducote. Enjoy!
