Skinny Dip...



Skinny Dip by Carl Hiaasen

What a hoot!

Chaz Perrone pushes his wife Joey overboard during their anniversary cruise to hide a secret, ridding himself of his wife so that he can continue his swindling, seeing his mistress, and cruising town in his new Hummer.

The only problem? Joey didn't die.

What follows is a hysterical, fast-paced romp through Boca Raton and the Everglades as wife plots against husband, cops and robbers run back and forth, backstabbing and blackmail, and a little spicy romance thrown in.

I've never read a Hiaasen novel, but this novel certainly charmed me, and I hope to read his others. What a fun, fun read!

Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Barry Bostwick. I was initially concerned about listening to Barry, but from the first line, he had me. What a great narration!
