This book was given to me by Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
This book had the making of an excellent story. I have always loved a good mystery with a dramatic plot. This book began strong and then petered out. The first part of this book was filled with dramatic scenes, the middle of the story was very slow then picked up again towards the end. 20 years has passed since the beginning of the book , and we as readers are to accept that their may be some flashbacks during the 20 year span.
The head of the Columbian Cartel wants to seek revenge on the Americans who killed his family 20 years ago. Cale Colman is a retired DEA agent just wanting to be left alone. He now runs a private charter service and just happens to run into Francisco Escobar, who is the nephew of the largest drug lord ever. This even wrecks havoc on Cale’s retirement plans since Cale was the agent who killed the drug lord’s brother. A bachelor party on
Cale’s boat meets up with another boat that is carrying three traveling nurses. Cale becomes smitten with Ashley, one of the nurses. While this book included romance, mystery, intrigue, and good writing, the overall plot fell short for me. Perhaps, it was the banter between present day and 20 years prior that made me skim the middle. The writing was good, and I will look for more books by this author.
