What was supposed to happen: Mandy would land in the Virgin Islands, head to the Revenge Café on St. Thomas, and start living her dream life. She'd begin a new career sharing ownership of the restaurant with her best friend, Chance. She'd break her addiction to therapy cold turkey. And shed let the slow, laid-back pace of island life fix whatever was broken within her. What actually happened: apparently the Revenge Cafe is the "it" place for people dying, let alone dining. While she's dealing with a murder on the premises, Mandy learns Chance had been dabbling in a variety of activities that may or may not have been legal, and that may or may not have set her up to be the next victim. With people from her past refusing to stay there, a ghost in the dining room messing up closing time, and a too sexy police detective vying for her attention, Mandy wants only to bury her head in the sand, or at least drown it in a bottle of rum. But as the list of suspects grows to include an old boyfriend and former members of the VIPD, she realizes her own inner demons can destroy her faster than any living, breathing person. It is only after she gets the courage to face them head on that she finds the real murderers and learns they were the least likely of suspects.

Prepare to be surprised!
I love mysteries and when the solution surprises me, I like them even better. This one was a real surprise.
The most memorable moment is the "car chase" at the end. Mandy is an incredible, wonderful, delightful, makes-you-laugh-out-loud character.
Wendy Pitts adds dimension and atmosphere that would otherwise be missing, if I just read the book. Her voices bring the characters alive and give them personality that I definitely wouldn't get just reading it.
Dining and Death in Paradise!
Get this audio book, you'll love the characters. You will also feel the spirit of island.
