Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0743452593, Hardcover)This sexy, funny novel, first published as an electronic book, proves there's still room in the Florida caper genre for a newcomer. Jane Ellen Ashley is a gorgeous blue-eyed oyster shucker who's on the run because she believes she caused the accidental drowning of a prominent Senator's slightly inebriated son. And Happy Harry Harper is a down-on-his-luck English professor who's also fleeing a Caribbean island because he thinks he's wanted for a murder he may or may not have committed. When two seasick mobsters offer him money to sail their boat back to Miami and transport a coffin they swear holds the body of a Honduran national hero whose family wants to bury him in their adopted land, it looks like the answer to Harry's prayers. How Jane Ellen and Harry manage to evade their pursuers, find each other, and save the pristine fishing grounds of her beloved Apalichola Bay makes for one of the wittiest romps through territory previously claimed by plenty of other writers from Carl Hiaasen to Dave Barry. Oyster Blues is a side-splitting debut from a writer to watch. --Jane Adams
