I think I had higher expectations of this book. I love Evanovich's Plum books and this book just isn't a Plum book. I tried not to let this sway my judgement of this book but over all it kind of did. I wasn't able to fully get into the characters or the storyline. I think this was my issue, however, not the storyteller. The repetitive referral to Sam as NASCAR Guy kind of irritated me but not enough to stop me from finishing this book. I think over all the book was decent and interesting enough for me to pick up the second in the series. ( )

Fun read. I don't know much about cars or NASCAR, and this book didn't really inspire me to learn more. Still a fun book. ( )

A fun read with boats, Miami and Key West, a new heroine whose instincts are good, and a bit of Cuban history. Apparently it's the first book in a series. ( )

This is the first non-Stephanie Plum book of Evanovich's that I have ever read. It was okay. She made Alex's love interest out to be a womanizing dope in the beginning and I had a hard time coming around to liking him at all. Still, I plan on trying out the next book in the series to see if it gets any better. I didn't hate this book, it just wasn't on the same level as the Stephanie Plum series at all. ( )

Just because I know how to change a guy’s oil doesn’t mean I want to spend the rest of my life on my back, staring up his undercarriage.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060584025, Mass Market Paperback)

Alexandra (Barney) Barnaby roars onto the Miami Beach scene in hot pursuit of her missing baby brother, "Wild" Bill. Leave it to the maverick of the family to get Barney involved with high-speed car chases, a search for sunken treasure, and Sam Hooker, a NASCAR driver who’s good at revving a woman's engine.

Engaged in a deadly race, Bill has "borrowed" Hooker's sixty-five-foot Hatteras and sailed off into the sunset...just when Hooker has plans for the boat. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Barney and maybe run into scumbag Bill. And better yet, maybe he'll get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie pie sister.

The pedal will have to go to metal if Barney and Hooker want to be the first to cross the finish line, save Bill, Hooker's boat...and maybe the world.
