Most people dream of being stuck on a tropical island, but Cal Batten just wants to sell his dad's ramshackle, football-shaped house, fly home, and pay off his creditors. Problem is, his dad's will's gone missing, what passes for an attorney has his own agenda, and the wacky locals may tear the house apart to get at the gold and jewels they reckon are hidden inside. There's also his childhood former-best friend, now a beautiful scuba instructor, who just might drown him out of spite. Cal has to dodge sharks—on land and under water—if he's to unload the house and escape the crazy little rock.
The Secret of Rosalita Flats is a Northern Exposure-meets-Margaritaville, tropical misadventure for anyone who's ever dreamed of chucking it all and running off to the Caribbean. From the author of Blacktip Island.
