From NY Times best selling author Rebecca M. Hale, a novella about a diligent dermatologist traveling solo on his Caribbean honeymoon, a surly chef working the counter at a beachside diner, and, of course, a fish sandwich.

Recently jilted at the altar, Dr. Walcott Emerson Jones decides to set off on his honeymoon without his runaway bride. An adventurous week on a remote Caribbean island is just what the sun-averse dermatologist needs to mend his broken heart.

Along the way, he braves a creepy cane field, tracks a grief-stricken fisherman up the side of a volcano, and befriends a chef at the local beachside diner.

But the calculating cook has broader ambitions than spending the rest of her life serving up fish sandwiches, and the spurned diamond ring hanging from the doctor’s neck is a prize too tempting to resist. Will the vacationer’s last meal on the island turn into his last meal – ever?

A story about a man, a fish, and the daily special.

My View:

If you like quirky and the slightly bizarre then this novella is for you. Hale provides some very beautiful settings, the locations are picture book idyllic; romantic tropical island, beautiful luxury resort and  even more stunning local beaches and a fish shack on the water front that makes the most  incredible and delicious freshest fish sandwiches.

Add to this setting a dermatologist afraid of the sun that has just been dumped by his bride to be and a tuna in love with the doctor, and a cast of local desperate and murderous people and you have a very interesting and somewhat strange story this is unlike anything I have ever read.
