Mystery

To catch a jewel smuggler on a luxury yacht, Helen needs to pose as the ship's new stewardess--but between serving drinks to the snobs, scrubbing floors, and cleaning up after seasick passengers, she's starting to miss dry land almost as much as she misses Phil.

While Helen's cruising to the Bahamas, Phil's got his own job--trying to catch a sexy gold digger who may have killed her elderly new husband for his fortune. Good thing he's a self-proclaimed master of disguise, playing it cool as everything from an air-conditioning repairman to a Rastafarian.

Helen's a help to Phil in his case, but when she's on her own on the high seas, Helen needs to watch her step as she searches out the smuggler--or she may end up going from undercover to overboard...

Re: Final Sail

Wow,
(Heidi Durham 2:44am May 20, 2012)

that was my reaction, too, Heidi. This is the kind of cleaning that used to be done at the grand mansion, which had huge live-in staff.

Please tell me you're joking about this!!

And if you're not, all I can say is, "Thank god I never applied for a job like that, no matter how much I love to travel!!"

Later,

Lynn

I guess it is easy to forget how much work goes into maintaining a yacht...it's not all fun. And apparently for Helen, it is a LOT of work.

Your book sounds interesting.
(
Robin McKay 7:15pm May 20, 2012)

I shouldn't be surprised by this. If you can afford a yacht, you can afford to waste a lot of stuff. In a way it would make sense to be clean to a degree in the bathroom, but it sounds like a bit of overkill. I'm sure there would be a lot more in your book that would surprise me, so I would love to read it. It sounds like a wonderful read.

I used to be so OCD I couldn't leave the house - it is a family trait I think from vacumning curtains and everything in it's spot - hard to think I had time for anything

Lynn,I'm not joking. It's a fun job if you're very young. After that, the work gets old in a hurry. The salaries are surprisingly good. Helen would make about $40,000 a year as a stewardess, including room and board.

Robin and Peggy, hope you'll read the book and enjoy it.
(

Funny premise. I bet you pass the white glove and thoroughness test. Are you bonded?
(
Alyson Widen 9:43pm May 21, 2012)

I'm not bonded, Alyson, but stewardesses and other crew on well-run yachts are usually hired from crew agencies. Many are located in Fort Lauderdale.

wow - a great story!
(
Felicia Ciaudelli 8:12pm May 26, 2012)

Sounds like a great read but I wouldn't want to be in Helen's shoes and have to do all that work and not be appreciated!
(
Ann Thaxton 10:51am June 2, 2012)

Now this sounds like a fun read. I had a dorm mother that used a white glove to check our rooms with. Yuck. Sounds like this book should have had her to over see. I was 16 at the time & it was a summer camp that I worked for. Lots of kids.
