I always know when I read a Housewife Assassin book that the adventures that Donna and Jack will encounter will be outrageous and incredible, and this book keeps up the trend, and most assuredly did not disappoint in any way. I found it funny and engaging, and quite honestly, I had a very difficult time putting the book down. It drew me in and did not let me go. The storyline was as quirky and as much of a roller coaster as all the rest of the books, leaving more questions than answers. And all of the best characters from the previous books are back, and a few new ones are introduced, making the cast of characters even larger and more fun. I’m quite eagerly anticipating the sixth book in the series, and I know fans of the series are as well!
Donna and Jack are finally getting a long sought after vacation, no kids, no work, just them, and a nice, relaxing vacation. Or so they thought, until the harsh work world intrudes and that dream is shattered. Now they are off to a tropical island in search of a missing scientist with a missing biological weapon, but at least it’s sans kids. What they don’t know is that the island is ripe with problems. Pygmy natives stalking the vacationers, a serial killer who is also a cannibal, man- eating crocodiles, and to make matters worse, all three of the kids and Aunt Phyllis end up on the island with Jack and Donna and the crew as well! Oh, and there’s that missing biological weapon and scientist somewhere on the island, too, that needs to be found. And somehow the Quorum keeps popping their noses into the mess too. Can Donna once again save the world? Come along on the trip of a lifetime. It’s a trip not to be missed.
A nude sunbathing serial killer, a Lord of the Flies 'tween takeover, poison-dart throwing pygmies......
Talk about a fantasy (nightmare?) island!
An NSA scientist has disappeared with a deadly plague virus. Donna and Jack must find him before it is unleashed on Fantasy island, home of three very different resorts:
Like Kamp KidStuff, where families frolic among dolphins, cartoon characters, and warring gangs of tweens who believe in the law of the jungle--including human sacrifices ;
And Eden Key, a nude singles sanctuary where tiki-hut tree houses provide the perfect setting for rum-fueled romances and casual hook-ups—not to mention the occasional swinger slashing…
Finally, there's the Hunt Club, which allows its members to track a very unique, soon-to-be extinct prey.
And you call this a vacation?
