Martini Regrets - Phyllis Smallman
If Sherri Travis hadn’t decided to have that last dirty martini her life would have taken a different turn. She wouldn’t have been traveling across the Florida Everglades in the middle of the night with an almost empty gas tank. She wouldn’t have wound up fighting off a plethora of critters both creeping and crawling; the most dangerous of all the kind that stands on two legs. Frightening beyond belief is Sherri’s adventure in the treacherous swamp land. But maybe not as terrifying as thinking she’s safe when that’s far from the truth. Why did a business card and a pink flip flop pose such a threat? Sherri and Clay, her finance, are thrown by circumstance into the elegant but amoral world of the ultra rich whose only passion is rare and exotic orchids. Would someone who would pay thousands of dollars for one orchid become a murderer to win the prize? Phyllis Smallman’s Sherri Travis is a sassy, tough but tender character that has never quite escaped her swamp rat image although she’s now the owner of the best bar on the coast, The Sunset. She’s mouthy, impulsive and a little paranoid but she’s also compassionate and loves deeply. If you have been following the Sherri Travis series, Martini Regrets, is a must read. Even if you haven’t read the others this book is guaranteed to keep you up at night eagerly turning page after page. Sherri may well start to regret more than that last martini as her life takes a dramatic turn. I personally can’t wait for the next book.
