Description
"Husband and wife PI team Helen Hawthorne and Phil Sagemont both have their hands full, but only Helen has to carry drink trays as part ofher latest undercover assignment as a stewardess on a private yacht """

"Lost at Sea"

To catch a jewel smuggler on a luxury yacht, Helen needs to pose as the ship's new stewardess but between serving drinks to the snobs, scrubbing floors, and cleaning up after seasick passengers, she's starting to miss dry land almost as much as she misses Phil.

While Helen's cruising to the Bahamas, Phil's got his own job trying to catch a sexy gold digger who may have killed her elderly husband for his fortune. Good thing he's a self-proclaimed master of disguise, playing it cool as everything from an air-conditioning repairman to a Rastafarian.

Helen's a help to Phil on his case, but when she's on her own on the high seas, Helen needs to watch her step as she searches out the smuggler or she may end up going from undercover to overboard
