New York Times bestselling author Randy Wayne White introduces Hannah Smith—a lady with the heart and courage to take on the world…

Hannah Smith is a tall, strong, formidable Florida woman, the descendant of generations of strong Florida women. She makes her living as a fishing guide, but her friends, neighbors, and clients also know her as an uncommonly resourceful woman with a keen sense of justice, as someone who can’t be bullied—and they have taken to coming to her with their problems.

Her methods can be unorthodox, though, and those on the receiving end of them often wind up very unhappy—and sometimes very violent. When a girl goes missing, and Hannah is asked to find her, that is exactly what happens…

I'm going to give the benefit of doubt

First off let me say that I live by Sanibel and loved hearing about places so close to home. I was referred to read this author by someone who had read his other series. I'm an avid reader who has read to many books to count. That being said...

I was a bit mortified at the lead character in this series. I do enjoy strong female leads and was looking forward to reading about another one. I was disappointed. I feel like a male writer who isn't really familiar with females and how they think wrote this. Let me start by saying if you grew up around charter boat captains as a female you learned how to hold your own ground and give 'em back as hard as you get 'em. Docile doesn't really work in the marinas or as a charter Captain. As a charter boat captain half or even more than half of your job is entertaining your clients. Jokes, socializing, stories.

Also those of us females that had acne or were late bloomers more than not, were adapt at compensating by being Jokers or sweet, or even jerks lol. So a charter boat Captain who is an entertainer and jokes and socialozes is a perfect character.. but that character is not in this book. I actually had a hard time finishing this book only because it irritated me. But I did. I'm hoping that the next book I read by this author will show growth in his female lead. I enjoyed the writing and story line. I'll try another book in this series, but if his lead female is so off in that one too, I'll just stick to his books about the male lead character.

Oh... One more little thing.. we don't burn bees in this area of the world. Hornets, yellow jackets, wasps.. heck yeah. Not bees though. Bees make the sweetest honey down here since they get their pollen from the orange groves that are littered around our area.

Good writing, good story line.. poorly written Heroine. I'll give the benefit of the doubt and try one more book in this series.

Once again RWW has hit a home run. I could not put this book down. The female heroin is a wonderful surprise, yet all the familiar characters are woven into this page turning saga. Hopefully there will be many more Hanna stories in the future. Thanks for another exciting Florida home town adventure. I loved it.
