Murder, mayhem, hot man-love...and madness. It’s all in a day’s work for US Federal Marshal Dean Honeybone…

Honeybone is accompanying extradited child killer Richard Stance to Australia when their plane crashes off the northeast coast of the island continent. The only survivors of the packed flight are Honeybone and four-year-old Kaia Pendleton, whom Dean rescues during the crash. As Dean and Kaia recuperate in a Queensland hospital, questions swirl about what caused the accident...and what happened to Stance’s body, the only one not recovered from the wreckage.

Unable to return to work due to his injuries and plagued by raging headaches and violent nightmares, Honeybone must rest. Convinced that Stance survived and is free to kill again, he’s reluctant to take the gift of a week-long dream vacation at Wilson Island, a remote, luxury resort where only ten guests at a time are allowed to visit. Honeybone gives in, pondering the prospect of rekindling his relationship with Rongo Davis, an Australian Security Intelligence operative. But then he meets Jean-Luc Sebastien, a French chef, and discovers the possibility of a different sort of life.

Yet all the while, death and danger are as close as the next barrier reef…

NOTE: This book was previously released by Extasy Books in 2010 and by Amber Allure in 2014.

Book Review

What a lovely continuation of this series! Action-packed as ever, even though Dean Honeybone is still 'trying to retire', with a brilliant setting in Paris, and lots of personal details in Dean's and Jean-Luc's relationship as well as the development of the family dynamics with Kaia and Kat. And with my hopes up for another book (or two) coming in this series, I have something to look forward to!

The observations about Paris and Parisians made me laugh out loud. While the central theme, as in all the previous stories, is a case Dean is trying to solve, there is so much else going on as well. Jean-Luc opens a new restaurant, there is a story about a toaster, a dog, and Dean gets to deal with an ex-lover of Jean-Luc's. Lots of mouth-watering food descriptions as well as very hot sex added to the richness of the story. Bravo!
