Thirty-six-year-old Nina Spark has done something crazy. After knocking back a night's worth of wine, she's bought a house in the Caribbean. Off the Internet. At 2:00 a.m. Committing to the most impulsive decision she's ever made, Nina leaves her cheating ex-husband behind, puts her teaching career in New York on hold, and moves to Pineapple Cay-a land of white sand, cloudless skies, and turquoise waters. Her new life is off to a lovely start: she's got a private beach, a handsome neighbor, and a cushy travel-writing assignment. Even Barry Bassett, a greedy land developer eager to push her out to make way for condos, can't darken her sunny new outlook. But when Barry's wife goes missing, along with a priceless jeweled necklace, Nina finds herself at the center of the island's biggest whodunit. With her quirky but fiercely loyal new friends, Nina is determined to solve the mystery-so both she and Pineapple Cay can get back to easy living.
