Book Review- Just Add Salt - Jinx Schwartz

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Hetta and Jan her cohort in trouble really get in a mess this time around! They were supposed to meet up with their boyfriends and go on Hetta's boat for a vacation--they got a job. Hetta asnd Jan were not very happy --Hetta decided to grab a job and taker the boat out on her own (with Jan of course). Neither of the woman really knew how to navigate or even really anything about it--AND in order to take the boat into foreign weater they needed a cvaptain. They found one-or rather he found them--and off they went!

The mishaps along the way will make you laugh as the two women tried to get used to the chavanist they had as a captain! When a blue fin whale decided he was in love with the boat--they managed to get a guy who was a whale specialist on board.

Then some real trouble happens-aside from a major hurricane---and they have to hide the boat. The two guys get taken by the bad guys and Hetta and Jan have to figure out a way out of all this by themselves--not leaving the boat behind!

So who comes to save the day? Their boyfriends are supposedly in Kuwait. AND did the Blue Fin whale ever find one of his own kind and leave Hetta's boat alone. Our lovesick whale does have something to do with saving them too!

I defy you not to laugh out loud at the antics of Hetta and Jan as they head off into the blue Pacific!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht, and she's not afraid to use it!

A globe-trotting engineer with attitude, a penchant for trouble, and a yacht, Hetta is back, and this time she's steering us into hot Mexican waters.
Miffed that vacation plans with her chronically absent boyfriend, Jenks Jenkins, have gone awry, she accepts a job in Baja.

So what, if she and her friend Jan are spectacularly unqualified to take her yacht on a thousand-mile cruise in the eastern Pacific Ocean during hurricane season?

Hiring a handsome, if somewhat fishy captain for the trip might keep them off the rocks, but probably won't do the same for her future with Jenks. Meanwhile, a little eye candy on board can't be all bad.

Hetta's fierce independence impels her to tackle a very profitable (if environmentally and politically incorrect) project south of the border. True to form, her irreverent nature and disregard for danger soon swamps her in a sea of mayhem, illegal aliens, a pesky whale, and a menacing Mexican machinator.

Set sail for Baja Mexico's Magdalena Bay as Hetta Coffey leads us once more into a morass of intrigue that will keep you laughing, breathless, and wanting more.
