When a deathbed promise to one of her agents leaves Wendy Darlin, feisty Miami real estate broker for billionaires, trapped on a super-yacht with Ponzi-king, Charlie Hook, she’s forced to join him on a quest to recover his hidden treasure. Along for the danger-filled adventure are an undercover SEC Investigator, who kindles a spark in Wendy with his ‘Johnny Depp’ eyes and Hook’s young female helicopter pilot who befriends Wendy as they sail the high seas, one step ahead of modern day ruthless pirates. A laugh out loud whodunit… kidnapping, revenge, and a little murder on the side. The second book in the Fractured Fairy Tales by Silkstone series of criminally funny fables, this comedy mystery is set in Miami and the Caribbean.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This is not a mystery like your usual mystery, nor is it simply a humorous novel; it is the most perfect combination of the two. Knowing Silkstone’s writing, I expected Wendy and the Lost Boys to be clever and funny, but I didn’t expect such a wild ride of a mystery and a rapid repeat of thrill, laugh, thrill. Silkstone has really hit on something with her twist on classic tales. It makes the story all the more fun as you compare the characters in Wendy and the Lost Boys to those of Peter Pan.

*******

A fun, laugh-out-loud read. I plan on reading Barbara Silkstone’s other book in this series, The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, to see how she deals with that fairy tale; I am expecting a lot of laughs from that book as well.

*******

This book will take you on an adventure you’ll never forget! Join street-wise Wendy Darlin as she battles a slimy ex husband, a malicious and depraved Ponzi King, devil rays, polonium poisoning, and so much more! From the sun-drenched streets of Miami to the backwoods of Georgia this book “hooks” you from the start and takes you on an unforgettable journey full of laughter and excitement. Way to go, Barb!

About The Author


When you’re a freelance writer with a quirky sense of humor, being in the right place at the right time helps a lot. If I just stand still for five minutes… wham! Something funny and worth writing about will happen to me. I’ve accidentally sky dived, been elected president of the Japan American Society (I’m not Japanese), been stalked by crazies, and ran off with a real life White Rabbit.

I’m a single mother, living on the edge in South Florida. My background includes parochial school, commercial real estate, public speaking, teaching, and church administration. My writing history is equally as diverse. I started an underground newspaper in grade school and was threatened with excommunication by the nuns. After being published in the horror genre, I was fortunate enough to take part in writing workshops with Stephen King, Robert B. Parker, and James Michener.

I enjoy doing playful things with language, blending two distinct words to create a new word. If I’m laughing out loud when I’m writing, then I know I’ve hit the mark. I’m working on Wendy & the Lost Boys right now. I laugh so loud while I’m writing that the neighborhood committee has asked me to move.

For six years I traveled the United States listening to men reveal their darkest secrets for my book, The Adventures of a Love Investigator, 527 Naked Men & One Woman. When I was finished with my adventure, I realized the only man I should have interviewed was Lewis Carroll, unfortunately he was long gone. So I set out to pay homage to his logic by re-telling Alice in Wonderland in a contemporary setting. The result is The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters ~ comedy thriller that takes place between Miami and London.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Barbara Silkstone and ENT appreciate it.
