Publisher's Summary

Engaging and quirky mystery, history, and adventure!
Underwater, everybody can hear you scream, but they can't tell where you are....
Ketch is at it again in the magical Outer Banks of North Carolina, in this new adventure from the author of Port Starbird and Port of Refuge. It's a picture-perfect summer afternoon on a pristine beach near a ghost seaport on an uninhabited island. What could go wrong? But things do, when two bodies wash ashore and Ketch stumbles upon clues that lead to the sunken treasure of an old-time buccaneer off Portsmouth Island. Ketch isn't the only one who has an interest in the treasure, and it exposes both him and his adversaries to unexpected obligations and consequences. It seems everyone has to pay the port fee....
Good guys and bad guys, boating and diving, a dash of romance, and a mysterious otherworldly presence all come together in The Port Fee, Ketch's most challenging adventure to date.

Combines mystery, history, and action

I have vacationed in the beautiful Outer Banks, N.C. area and I got this book, which takes place there, to reconnect with it. I gave 5 stars for the story which is about finding sunken treasure and what happens to the characters that find it. Ketch and his family and friends seem to do a marvelous job of proving that money can't buy happiness. The author, Garrett Dennis, used to live there and brings a lot of the area's history to life, which I appreciated. And there is an otherworldly element that is both spooky and humorous. I got the audiobook version narrated by Ward Paxton, whose casual style fits the book nicely. I loved the voice he does for the fishing boat captain. There is an environmental message in the book, which I really liked because it gives hope that the area will remain unspoiled.

Captivating Book

Would you listen to The Port Fee: A Storm Ketchum Adventure again? Why?

Am not much into listening to any book moire than once, but I could see me pulling it up at some future date and listening again because it was a captivating read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Port Fee: A Storm Ketchum Adventure?

the accident after they first discovered the gold bars

What about Ward Paxton’s performance did you like?

Had trouble at first deciding the age of hero because he sounded much older than he actually was but I became more accustomed to his voice as I listened and got into the story. Everything else was good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

would have liked to, but needed to take breaks and was always anxious to get back into it

Any additional comments?

I freely received this audio book from, the author, narrator, or publisher and am freely offering my unbiased opinion .
