Most people dream of being stranded on a tropical island, but down-on-his-luck Cal Batten just wants to sell his dad’s ramshackle, football-shaped house, fly home and pay off his creditors. Unfortunately for him, nothing on Blacktip Island goes smoothly. Or quickly.
His dad’s will is nowhere to be found. What passes for an attorney has a taste for rum and is working his own agenda. The locals reckon there’s treasure stashed in the house and are ready to tear the place apart to get at it. And his childhood former-best friend, now a beautiful scuba instructor, might just drown him out of spite. There’s also the matter of sharks showing up every time he gets in the water. If Cal can’t figure out what his old man was mixed up in, fast, he may end up stuck on the crazy backwater island, broke and homeless.
The Secret of Rosalita Flats is a smart, funny tropical misadventure for anyone who’s ever dreamed of chucking it all and running off to the Caribbean.
