Escapes to Paradise: Adventures and Misadventures in the Beautiful Caribbean Sea
by Paul Franson
You may dream of buying a boat in the tropics, but you’d do well to read this book before you do.

The book also includes tales of other sailing adventures, a guide to sailing some popular islands, and a cookbook of Caribbean recipes. Print version $9.99 at Amazon or the Kindle version for $4.99 from Amazon.com.
