The author combines an agreeable mix of feisty heroine, sexy hero, black-market Tupperware, self-gratifying monkey, needy mother, bossy cat and true friends. And let’s not forget the dubious characters who are determined to stop Erica, Jack, and Joe from getting to the bottom of the mystery, and then escaping with their lives either! Put them all together, and you have a book that kept me sneaking back to read ‘just another chapter!’
Erica Jewell thinks being a part-time vigilante is stressful enough without the added pressures of a demanding day job, annoying family and bossy cat. Now her mysterious lover has vanished on some clandestine mission, without leaving a forwarding address. Erica reckons that’s pretty typical of hired gun Jack Jones – he’d rather risk his life than his heart.
Then Erica discovers with a shock that Jack is M.I.A. on the jungle-infested island of Saint Sebastian. When no one seems willing to help find Jack or even acknowledge his existence, Erica knows she’s his only chance. But negotiating her way around lawless and sweltering Sebastian, where monkey business abounds, proves far more dangerous than she expected.
Fast-paced, funny and totally engaging, Monkey Business blends humour, adventure and romance in an irresistible summer read.
