Rum Punch Regrets by Anne Kemp
I was very excited when Anne Kemp requested to go on tour with CLP Blog Tours. I was crushing on her Abby George series, and couldn’t wait to dive into Rum Punch Regrets. As a travel lover, I was ecstatic to find out the novel was based in the Caribbean. The MC is thirty year old Abby George, who has been having some pretty rough weeks. Her mother passed away, she lost her job, and she was dumped by her fiancé. Whew! Her luck seems to be turning around when her sister offers to send her to the Caribbean to help clear up some mysterious baggage that she seemed to leave behind. Abby jumps at the chance to clear her head – but everything gets foggy upon arrival. Seems her sister forgot to mention she owned and was in the process of selling a bed and breakfast….and a few other major family secrets. What a fun read! I loved the setting especially, and the details and pictures painted in my mind were amazing – and really makes me want to plan a vacation! (What’s that – a honeymoon calling my name?!) There was a lot of drama, some hilarious characters, and the mystery was my favorite part. Abby stumbles upon a huge secret while at the B&B, one that is life-changing for her and others. The third book in the series is a must-read, because not everything is tied up neatly at the end. Be sure to also check out the first book, which is a novella titled All Fruits Ripe. I will be anxiously awaiting that release!
