Warning: Strong Adult Content. This is not one for the car rides with kids. Davies and Bristol have both suffered severe trauma and are on a therapy trip of sorts for survivors on the tropical island of St. Lucia. Davis, and all the characters for that matter are fond of swearing. He is a moody bum that is ‘wallowing in depression’. His words. Bristol is a skinny, sassy mouth, sports nut that Davies nicknames ‘Trouble’. She has painful memories and guilt laden mornings. They have quite a nice rhythm going on between them and I love their witty interludes. They found solace in each other and both offered the other the help and support to become fully alive and overcome their fears and guilt to move on from the tragedies they both survived. The rest follows the cookie cutter pattern where the go their separate ways, some drama and they live happily ever.
This book has the greatest poetry at the start of each chapter that are a perfect synopsis of what is going to happen. Sometimes I find these cheesy but they were nicely done in this love story. The storytelling alternates between Bristol and Davies. The narrator has a range of voices that fit the back and forth, first person style narration well. The native Caribbean accents were a bit off as well as some of the other foreign accents but it did not detract from the overall presentation. I liked the fact that she had different voices. The repartee between characters were so witty and very funny and I think the narrator brought the characters to life with the varied voices. The performance was well done. It is probably not worth a credit to me as I like to use my credits on longer books of a different genre but I probably would buy it. It is credit worthy.
