Review: The Secret of Rosalita Flats

The Secret of Rosalita Flats (Blacktip Island #2)


Cal’s a hapless watchmaker. Marina’s a beautiful scuba instructor. They were friends as kids. Now, not so much. Together they’ll solve the secret of Rosalita Flats. If the sharks don’t get them first.

The Secret of Rosalita Flats is about a man trying to unload the football-shaped house he inherited, while dodging the backwater Blacktip Island’s quirky collection of con artists, smugglers and other ne’er-do-wells: an ornery housekeeper who refuses to be fired, a rum-soaked attorney with his own agenda, a chair-wielding resort manager who thinks he’s an avenging angel, and a self-styled psychic who may be able to see the future. There’s also a mysterious someone—or something—trying to scare Cal off the island. Cal has to figure out what his old man was mixed up in, fast, if he’s to sell the house and get off the crazy little rock alive.

Written with Hiaasen-esque humor, The Secret of Rosalita Flats is a beguiling mystery for anyone who’s ever dreamed of chucking it all and running off to the Caribbean. From the author of the award-finalist Blacktip Island.

Rating: 4-stars


The Secret of Rosalita Flats by Tim W. Jackson is the first book I have read in this series. I was able to follow along easily. The cast of characters is amazing. Many of them are the kind I wouldn’t want to be around but they make this mystery book even more real. A man has come to sell off a family home and leave. Instead, the cast of characters only help hinder his plans, causes more chaos than he needs, and there’s a mystery surrounding what his family member did. Plenty of quirky characters, suspense, and action to keep me hooked. I enjoyed following Cal as the mystery just got more interesting with every page. Tim W. Jackson has a flair for drama, mystery, and humor. Overall, this book is a must read for all you want some entertaining and realistic characters. Adventure and trouble await in this exciting book.
