Hetta and Jinks are cruising the Sea of Cortez when a fishing boat challenges them. Hetta uses a flame thrower to chase the 2 men in the boat away. It seem wise to leave the area and head north. Arriving at Marina San Carlos Jenks returns to Kuwait leaving Hetta alone on the yacht. She receives a surprise gift from her Mother. Her Aunt Lil’s parrot named TROUBLE. This bird is noted for attaching dogs a.d Mexican men.
Jan joins Hetta and they decided to visit Chino’s Grandmother. They have a time preaching the town she lives. They learned that the town has been taken over by drug lords. Hetta has again found trouble without trying.
I like the way animals are use to enliven the story in this series. TROUBLE is main character in this book.
