Just thought I'd post some excerpts of reviews and feedback I've received for Marina Melee. I'm so very pleased!
This book was a fun read from beginning to end. The author does a great job of portraying the highs and lows of someone "from America" trying to live and work "down island" for the first time. She has a clear understanding of the many details that make island living so complex, and yet so rewarding when you start to relax and get things right. It brought back many great memories of island life when I lived (and tried to work) in the Caribbean a decade ago. Anyone involved in the marina or recreational boating business will love the book for its hilarious portrayals of all the marina characters that make life interesting along the waterfront. -The Professor
This was a fun read. Lynne paints a wonderful portrait of a rich ( because of his father) screw up who buys a marina on a small Caribbean island. He has everything going against him. So how does he manage to screw this one up? Ah, you will just have to read it for yourself. And trust me, you will enjoy it just as much as I did. I loved the use of the Caribbean 'slanguage'. -Tekay
Lynne Hinkey's hilarious, slightly raunchy, and damn good debut novel should make anyone think twice, maybe three times, about doing serious business in the Caribbean. - Bob Sanchez
This was a great summer read. It was set in the Caribbean and the description of the island was great! I enjoyed the cast of characters who were well developed. I would recommend this to anyone as a great beach book! -corbinam
