Synopsis: Sterling Towne decided to take a last minute vacation to a sunny paradise to cheer herself up after a divorce. When the airline misplaces her luggage, she thinks it's just a typical airline snafu until she gets her luggage back only to find out it’s not hers. Rather the suitcase belongs to someone who thought it a good idea to transport a gold Buddha statue via commercial airlines.
Sterling turns the statue into hotel security for safe keeping but then her room is ransacked, and she’s sure there was someone following her in town. Does the owner of the statue think she still has it? But if so, why not just ask? She’s getting nervous, and even her new friend Steve thinks she might be in danger.
Is she? Or is her imagination just working over time?
Review: I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Sterling is a very relatable character, and her adventures on vacation are both fun and suspenseful.
As I got into the story, I kept alternating between two suspects, and didn't really trust the motives of either one. In the end, one of them DID turn out to be a bad guy.
This is a quick easy read. There are twists and turns in the plot to keep you reading. I hope this will be the first in a series.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.
Rating: Four stars
