Love for Sail
by Charles Dougherty

A Connie Barrera Thriller (Connie Barrera Thrillers Book 1)

Join Connie Barrera as she makes her first ocean passage as captain of Diamantista, her new charter yacht. Experience her anxiety; feel her fear. Watch her survive by her wits.

Connie has recruited her friend, Paul Russo, to serve as cook and first mate. Paul can't join her on her maiden voyage, so Connie is forced to rely on pick-up crew for her first two weeks at sea. Trouble erupts aboard Diamantista as soon as she leaves shore.

Anticipating that Paul will join her in the Virgin Islands before their first guests arrive, Connie stays in touch with him during her voyage. As they converse, neither one will acknowledge that their growing attraction is deeper than friendship.

Love for Sail is the first book in the Connie Barrera Thrillers, a romantic thriller series from the author of the best-selling Bluewater Thrillers. The next Connie Barrera Thriller, Sailor's Delight, is available now on Amazon.

If you enjoyed the Bluewater Thrillers, you'll see a different side of some of your favorite characters when they appear in the Connie Barrera Thrillers. Connie Barrera first appeared in C.L.R. Dougherty's Deception in Savannah. She discovered her Love for Sail in Bluewater Ice and Bluewater Betrayal. Now she has her own stories to tell. Welcome aboard!

Wyatt enlists Mama Mulate, Tulane English professor, and actual voodoo mambo. Together, they try to unravel the strangest mystery to hit the venerable City since the era of Marie Laveau.

Alan Stewart finds himself paired once again with the beautiful and dangerous Vera Deward and embroiled in a mystery that's shaking the entire city. This time, a well-known and aging heiress has disappeared. Has she simply departed early for a glamorous honeymoon, taking the train to Minnesota, as her much younger and newly acquired husband insists, or has there been foul play? Alan Stewart and Vera Deward race against the clock, tracking murder suspects through the murky cityscape looking for clues to the heiress's whereabouts. Clues that lead to shady hotels, underground catacombs in Seattle's Chinatown, and to heart-pounding confrontations on fast-moving trains. Can Alan and Vera unwind the enigma in time to save the heiress, or will this mystery elude them?
