Who is the Passenger to Paradise? I still contemplate that question. She is the little girl with giant dreams that continue to haunt the now grown up woman. She is the child of adventure, the woman with her bag already packed and ready to go at a moment's notice.
Years ago, when we traveled to Trinidad, I was filled with excitement to undertake such an amazing journey. From the moment we landed at the Piarco International Airport in Port of Spain, we were in the midst of intrigue that continued for the entire week of our planned vacation. The expedition took us into so many unusual places and circumstances that what we did became part of the fourth Passenger to Paradise book, Night Watch.
"What has Lily "walked" into...? From the moment Lily's plane lands in
tropical Trinidad, things go awry. She planned for rest, relaxation and
photography, but instead faces mistaken identity, a gun running
operation and danger. Her transportation to her lodging does a no show,
and she is mistaken for someone named Katherine by Kyle Warren. Putting
the unsettling feelings of her trip and recent deaths of her parents
behind her, Lily enjoys the ocean view from her room only to see the
familiar figure of the man from the airport who is watching men
stealthily unloading cargo from a small boat. Over the next few days,
Lily's resemblance to another puts her in danger and Kyle's attempts to
protect her further complicate the uncanny memories and feelings that
she may indeed know him from the past. With her life in peril, Lily
discovers a deep kinship with her doppelganger and a growing attachment
Writing Night Watch made me long to return to Trinidad to discover more adventure. For now, it is a memory and a dream to follow the Passenger to Paradise on yet another exotic journey.
