Aphra Behn Connolly believes she is just an average teenage girl. The fact is though she leads a life that is anything but normal, actually most people would be pretty jealous of her. Her and her dad own and run a luxury resort on a secluded tropical island and Aphra spends her day eavesdropping on the lives of the rich and famous. There is one down side though to living on the island, Aphra is secluded from all the things that teenagers take for granted – friends and hot guys.
Aphra’s luck may have turned around when Seth Mulo and his parents unexpectedly arrive at the resort, bringing a whole cloud of mystery with them. The alarm bell really sounds though when a girl turns up dead on the beach – with the strings of her bikini tied around her neck – the day after the Mulos arrive. Aphra wonders what the family could possibly be hiding, and she is determined to figure it out. What Aphra doesn’t know is she’s about to involve herself in a dark mystery where there’s a lot more information then appears and there are lots of new faces lurking around every corner.
This book was too cute. It had the perfect mix of mystery and romance to satisfy any girl’s desire for a good read. The story was light and funny, yet still had a serious enough plot that it kept the reader interested and entertained. Aphra was a fun, mischievous character that kept the story lively. The romance between Aphra and Seth was also a breath of fresh air, as it didn’t follow the “normal” boy-meets-girl they flirt then fall in love mold! Linda Gerber definitely has created a one-of-a-kind mystery with Aphra as its leading star and I absolutely can’t wait to read more about her adventures!
