“Katrina Hunter's life had suddenly spun out of control. One day she was a San Francisco cop and engaged to be married soon; the next she was on suspension for a shooting, and her fiancé dumped her to protect his political career.
With time on her hands until the investigation for shooting her sister's stalker was settled, she set off to drown her own sorrows via a single-hand sail to Mexico on her sailboat, Pilgrim, and instead snagged a floater off Ensenada.
The victim was young, female, and very dead. Katrina was alone in foreign country and did what most Americans are told never to do: she reported the body to the Mexican Navy, resulting in her passport being seized and her being held in a Mexican jailhouse for questioning.
A Dangerous Harbor is a romantic suspense novel, not my usual cup of tea, but this book is good. The author catches the spirit of boating in Mexico, along with all the off-beat characters one meets along the way. A very handsome Mexican policeman, a bevy of loose women, an old flame, and the usual dock jockeys turn Katrina's Mexican vacation into a suspense-filled nightmare while she tries to find out who is killing off first the girl, then one of the suspects.
I highly recommend A Dangerous Harbor.
