Spotlight: WENDY AND THE LOST BOYS by Barbara Silkstone

Book Blurb:
When a deathbed promise to one of her agents leaves Wendy Darlin, feisty Miami real estate broker for billionaires, trapped on a super-yacht with Ponzi-king, Charlie Hook, she’s forced to join him on a quest to recover his hidden treasure. Along for the danger-filled adventure are an undercover SEC Investigator, who kindles a spark in Wendy with his ‘Johnny Depp’ eyes and Hook’s young female helicopter pilot who befriends Wendy as they sail the high seas, one step ahead of modern day ruthless pirates. A laugh out loud whodunit… kidnapping, revenge, and a little murder on the side. The second book in the Fractured Fairy Tales by Silkstone series of criminally funny fables, this comedy mystery is set in Miami and the Caribbean.

"This is a modern morality tale that takes the reader on an action-filled ride with memorable characters and lots of laughs along the way. It’s Indiana Jones meets Romancing the Stone while still remaining faithful to the original Peter Pan and Wendy".                                                                                      Consuelo Saah Baehr, author of Best Friends

Author bio:
Barbara Silkstone is the author of The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters, a brilliant tongue-in-cheek spin on a classic. She lives in South Florida. Her writing has been described as perfectly paced and pitched - shades of Stephanie Plum and Carl Hiaasen without seeming remotely derivative. Fast moving action that shoots from the hip with bullet-proof characterization.

  1. I've read both of Barbara Silkstone's Fractured Fairy Tales and found them delightful. They're funny, quirky, and skillfully written.

  2. I've also read both and for me, this second one was a much anticipated delight. I really, truly, could not but it down. Barbara Silkstone is an amazingly talented writer who manages to integrate thrills and humor, both at a mile a minute.

  3. Thanks LC and Georgina for commenting. I love finding out about new books, especially funny and quirky ones.
