Castaway in the Caribbean by Janice Horton

Castaway in the Caribbean sm jpeg

“Vacationing on the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua, Janey Sinclair is persuaded by her magazine editor boss to do a quick island hop in order to supervise an impromptu photo-shoot for the front cover. With no flights immediately available, Janey is directed to the harbour.

Captain Travis Mathews hates tourists, although he’s not above making a bit of money off a prissy and sharp tongued young British girl when she’s desperate to get to the neighbouring island of Tortola. After striking a deal, they set off together in Travis’s weather-beaten old boat. When the vessel comes to a sudden full stop in the sea, the mismatched pair end up as castaways on an uninhabited island.

In this fast moving romantic adventure about a vacation that turns into a tropical nightmare there’s more fun than you’ll find in any travel brochure.”

MY REVIEW

Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and share my honest review. The blurb on this one really caught my attention and I couldn’t wait to start reading.

By the time I reached the end of chapter one I was captivated. Janey’s relationship with her boyfriend seemed a little off but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was that bothered me about it. Janey was soon sent off on work business so I didn’t really get the chance to explore their relationship fully but I soon realised that my sense of unease was justified.

I thoroughly enjoyed the moment Janey first met Travis – I just love it when characters don’t get on, I think it makes the storyline more entertaining. Reading from Travis’ point of view was great because he was just so charming, I wanted to know exactly what was going through his mind when he was laying on that charm. Janey was a wonderful character, she seemed to blossom before my eyes and I loved that about her. Apparently danger was the key to her finding her own strength.

Unusually for me I actually chose to read this book at a slower pace purely because I wanted to savour it for a bit longer – I was enjoying it so much, I didn’t want it to finish. There was a point in the storyline where I thought the end was just around the corner, but to my delight the full adventure was only beginning!

If you’re tired of the dull, damp weather outside then this book is just what you need. The authors words will transport you to the beautifully sunny and warm Caribbean where a tray of ice-cold refreshments (and maybe the odd pirate or two) are waiting for you. But then you stop reading and realise its raining outside again. Oh well, back to the book then – it truly is the perfect book to escape with.

Castaway in the Caribbean is an exciting adventure which takes you on a rollercoaster ride of pirates, danger, treasure, kidnapping and even explosions – utter mayhem in beautiful surroundings!

A MESSAGE FROM JANICE:

I was incredibly fortunate to spend most of last summer in the Caribbean, writing and researching my latest novel Castaway in the Caribbean. I found it challenging only in the respect of being continually distracted from the manuscript by the tropical sunshine, the white sand beaches, the warm aquamarine sea, rum cocktails, and the fabulous social scene on offer. Many of these distractions are well documented on my website, blog and Facebook page, if you are interested in reading the details and seeing the photos!

For the purposes of proper research for Castaway in the Caribbean, I travelled to and explored many Caribbean islands and, despite my tendency for sea sickness, I also spent a lot of time in boats. I even got to sail around Tortola, the larger of the British Virgin Islands, in a restored schooner that had been used in the filming of the original Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

The Virgin Islands inspired me with the modern day setting for this romantic adventure novel because, of this chain of around ninety small islands, islets, cays and rocks in the Caribbean Sea, many are uninhabited.

I eventually settled down to write this romantic adventure story on the Caribbean island of Utila, the smaller of the Bay Islands, just off the coast of Honduras. Likened to the Key West of long ago, Utila is a quaint, unspoilt and laid-back little island. Sitting on the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, it is also a paradise for scuba diving, which is exactly what my husband was doing every day while I was busy writing this story.

Research is a valuable tool for a writer, so I do hope all the fun and adventure I had in the Caribbean has found its way into the pages of Castaway in the Caribbean.
