Bobby Little lives on Rum Cay hosting big dinners at his restaurant for the wealthy boaters that come into dock to have a good time. Everything is going smooth until the night naked Haitians show up asking for help. Bobby feels awful after the attempt to rescue the other Haitians who were fleeing didn’t pan out. This event sours tourists from wanting to come back after that awful bloody night.
One of Bobby’s friend Dennis gets a high idea to open a bar and while Bobby is out of town Dennis goes hog wild building his fancy restaurant and housing for his workers who are helping build his dream. When Bobby returns he realizes Dennis is in it to win and snag all the wealthy tourists from Bobby’s own restaurant. A battle of the restaurant ensues.
When things turn personal and Bobby has had it with Dennis trying to take over the island with his over priced bar, things turn ugly. Who will win? Bobby or Dennis?
I received my complimentary copy of Deep Water Blues by Fred Waitzkin from FSB Associates. The views expressed are my own and of my own will. This novel is inspired by real events. I’d never heard of Rum Cay until I read this book. I’ve never been to the Bahamas, but after Googling the island no wonder rich tourists flocked there. This book starts off a tad slow, but once it picks up speed you’ll want to find out what happens.
