Monti Sikes and I are debating titles for her latest novel in the Passenger to Paradise series. Here's a blurb:
Everything changes for Kyle Warren the day his friend, NPR reporter Katherine Burdette, is thrown overboard from a ferry boat. Now Kyle is in Trinidad in pursuit of the international criminal he and Katherine were investigating. Because he left her on the boat to respond to an urgent message, Kyle holds the burden of guilt for Katherine’s death.
Lily Henri comes to Trinidad looking for change in her life and a jumpstart to a new career as a photojournalist. Since the sudden death of her parents, Lily has not been the same. Long-time friends no longer interest her, and she has developed an extreme dislike for her boyfriend.
When Lily arrives in the airport terminal, Kyle sees Lily and is stunned because she looks so much like Katherine. He speaks to her and gives her his business card. A harrowing car ride delivers Lily to the Sundower Sands Resort where she discovers Kyle is the manager.
Over the next few days, Lily and Kyle are thrown together in a number of dangerous adventures involving gunrunning and international crime. Because she is a look-alike for Katherine, Kyle knows Lily is in grave danger. All the while Lily has uncanny memories of having known Kyle in the past, and feelings of kinship with Katherine take hold.
Is Lily a “walk-in”?
We're thinking "Stranger in My Heart"
