Just Needs Killin’

Released
2017

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht and she’s not afraid to use it! 

After several months of cruising Mexico’s hauntingly beautiful Sea of Cortez, Hetta’s in Puerto Escondido, a place once described by author John Steinbeck as “a magic harbor.” Anchored out, swaying on the hook at the whim of breeze and tide, surrounded by magnificent views and turquoise water can be magical. Stuck at anchor alone? Not so much. 

So when her best friend, Jan, gets them an invite to a party at a nearby luxury resort hosted by a Japanese businessman—all expenses paid—Hetta figures, why not? Why turn down an evening of free food and booze? And besides, what could possibly go wrong? 

With Hetta involved? Plenty. 

Not only are she and Jan soon up to their necks in hot sake, a succession of unsavory intruders sends Hetta scurrying for a safe harbor, but not before she reaches the conclusion that some folks just need killin’. 

Author Jinx Schwartz’s refreshingly free and fun-loving duo of Texas cuties in their late youths (40 is the new 30) romp and stomp on the Sea of Cortez and its environs in this delightful book which has references ranging from the Conquistadors to the Texas Rangers to World War II and the Japanese plan to buy Mexico (well, something like that). And I had the added delight of listening to the AUDIO, vivaciously narrated by Stevie Puckett who perfectly captures our madcap gals.
