"Nothing links person to person like the frequent passage from hand to hand of a good book."

I have had this book on my shelf for a while, but just don't think I'm going to get to it soon, or I may eventually put it as an audio book on my ipod.

This book stopped here for a short visit in Woodstock, Georgia. It is still travelling in princess-peapod's Spring Cleaning Bookbox.

This is a fabulous author! I have a copy of this one to read, so I'm putting it back in the box: Skinny Dip.

Hmmm, looks like I never said that I have this book. Sorry about that! I've had it for quite a while. My husband has read it at least twice since it has been here. Now it finally my turn to read it.

Journal Entry 5 by wingBooksandMusicwing at Seattle, Washington USA on Sunday, July 24, 2016

Funny book for the most part.
Joey Wheeler is thrown off a cruise ship, off the coast of Florida, by her husband on the their second anniversary cruise. She survives the fall and starts swimming. Guy in a boat finds her delirious and clinging to a bale of pot. He takes her in, hears her story and instead of going to the police the two of them plan a wacky revenge. Joey would like to know why her husband, Chaz, threw her off the ship.
Chaz is a biologist working as a water quality specialist for a big agricultural company in the Everglades. His job consists of lying about the amount of phosphorous in the water. When his wife is reported missing and assumed fallen overboard and drowned, this brings a lot of unwanted attention from the police who are rightly suspicious of the circumstances of Joey's assumed death. The company, protecting its interests, posts a gorilla of a body guard on Chaz. Farce ensues, justice is served, this is South Florida in all its hilariousness. I lived in South Florida for a little while and found it to be a place that generated amusing stories, including for me; the septic system (don't let your kids play in the sprinklers, walking barefoot in the grass - don't, the DOL - big room for waiting, people get called out in groups of 10, there are 10 chairs in a row and every time a person gets called to the counter everyone moves one chair closer to chair #1 from which you will get called to the counter - not even joking about this. Carl Hiaasen kicks it up a notch for laughs but he really portrays South Florida with an eye for its innate comedic value.

I had this listed in the Lit/Fic VBB. It was not selected and I am unsure what I am going to do with it.

I have chosen this book from the ABC Authors bookring--Authors whose last name starts with an "H".

Neither book in the bookring was my cup of tea, but I chose this one to release in the future.
