The dead body in the pool is putting a serious dent in Geoffs morning. An ex-pat property manager on the Caribbean island of Bequia, Geoff doesnt want a spotlight shone on the secret past he left behind in Canada, but now hes the suspect in a brutal murder. With no help from the inept local police force, hes drawn into investigating the murder himself, to clear his name. As Geoff finds out more about the circumstances surrounding the killing, and he and his loved ones find themselves in danger, he begins to see a very dark underbelly of the place some people call paradise…

Part travelogue, part mystery, Island in the Clouds takes a long, hard look at the reality of living in a place that seems perfect…from the outside, anyway.

Island in the Clouds, the debut murder mystery (first in a trilogy) by my fellow-Humber grad Susan M. Toy, is fun in the sun. With shady characters, some murders, and an island that refuses to be what it seems.

In honour of her first book, Susan has allowed me to host a contest and give away a signed copy of Island in the Clouds. All you have to do it comment and tell me about your favourite vacation meal. It doesn’t have to be from a trip to the Caribbean, or an island destination. Just wherever you went and found an amazing, unforgettable dish, whether in a restaurant, from a food truck, on the docks…

For more on Island in the Clouds and the origins of this contest, check out this week’s food column in Kamloops This Week (also being published in the Okanagan Sunday and Prairie Post). But you don’t have to be a subscriber to enter the contest. Just sit back, have a read, then tell me about something you ate.

The best travel/food story wins!

If yours isn’t the winning entry, however, Island in the Clouds is available in print and as an e-book. For how to purchase, click on THIS LINK.

And enjoy!

(Contest closes July 16.)
