About the book:

A Vegas cocktail waitress. An Indian herbalist. A British chemistry professor. An Italian-American widow. Four unique women with one thing in common: each is haunted by a tragedy from her past. The women are surrounded by ghosts long before they step aboard, but once they do.......


Once they were gone, Sarita hastily tucked her shirt into her jeans. Stupid, stupid, stupid. You’re so stupid, Sarita, she scolded herself. Who in their right mind tries to lose their virginity just to spite their mother?    

She used the blanket to wipe at her eyes before she folded it and stuffed it into the backpack. She was about to blow out the candles, when she realized that would leave her in total darkness. Glancing about for the flashlight, she saw that it had fallen from where Emilio had propped it and rolled to the opposite side of the hold.
Right near where she’d seen the little book slide down into the gap between the horizontal wall beams and the flooring of the hull. Had she imagined it? Should she find out?
Staring across at the spot, she stood where she was, gnawing on her thumbnail.
Decision made, she inched her way toward that side. Retrieving the flashlight, she held her breath and, aiming the light behind the curved edge, she peered down.
Something was there, but she couldn’t see it clearly.
Please don’t let it be a dead rat, please don’t let it be a dead rat, she prayed, as she reached down gingerly and pulled whatever it was up.
It wasn’t a rat. It was the book.
