From the New York Times bestselling author of Adrift on St. John and Afoot on St. Croix, comes a tale of intrigue and excitement in the Virgin Islands…

The tropical paradise of St. Thomas is shut down as the FBI seizes control of the island to apprehend government officials on bribery charges. Tourists and locals are stranded until FBI agent Gabe “Friday” Stein can find the missing governor and two senators who have eluded capture.

Innocent of any crime, Senator Julia Sanchez can only escape wrongful arrest with the help of eccentric Senator Bobo. As they try to blend in with increasingly hostile locals and make their trek across the island to safety, Senator Sanchez is only just beginning to realize the extent of the corruption behind the island’s idyllic façade…

Praise For Aground on St. Thomas (Mystery in the Islands #3)

Praise for New York Times bestselling author Rebecca M. Hale’s Mystery in the Islands series:

Afoot on St. Croix

“Hale's novels are elaborate puzzle pieces where plots at first seem scattered and unrelated, but ultimately weave together into one surprisingly unified storyline. Complex, funny and with darker tones that share more elements with the black-comedy mysteries written by Tim Dorsey than any cozy, Afoot on St. Croix entertains with its many self-centered characters that are flawed, but all too human.”—Kings River Life Magazine

“Readers will be enchanted by the setting, intrigued by the characters and amazed by the writing in this island cozy…a wonderful blend of the Caribbean in every chapter.”—Debbie's Book Bag

Adrift on St. John

“Intriguing…fans who want something different will enjoy being Adrift on St. John.”—Genre Go Round Reviews

“A perfect story to escape into...just when you think you have everything figured out, you don't! Enjoy!!" —Escape with Dollycas

“This was an easy-flowing, narrative tale that took a different path in its intriguing and adventurous jaunt on a tropical island.” —Dru's Book Musings
