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.

Nina bought a house off the internet. On a sunny Caribbean island she'd never heard of before. At about two o'clock in the morning with a glass of red wine in her hand, a few hours after her cheating husband had cleared out. She was on a plane to Pineapple Cay a week later. Things seemed to get off to a good start. Nina's new hometown is the charming village of Coconut Cove, with its narrow lanes lined with candy coloured houses and gardens overflowing with tropical flowers. Her back yard is a white sand beach and the mesmerizing turquoise sea. Her next door neighbour is the handsome Ted Matthews, owner of a fishing lodge. She's invited to a glamorous dinner party at the ocean hideaway of a famous musician. But local big shot Barry Bassett has his eye on Nina's cozy little beach cottage with the aim of tearing it down to build condos. Then Barry's obnoxious wife Tiffany goes missing, and Nina finds herself sitting across a desk from the very serious chief of police, Blue Roker, wondering how her day dream of easy living in the islands got so far off track so quickly.
