Donovan Grant is a pilot who used to work for the Feds, but ended up out on disability. Now, he's in Fiji--enjoying the good life.
We have two scenes here with many of the principal actors repeating. One pre-flight where Donovan cannot drink and the other where he can.
"Decisions" made me laugh, which is a very good thing. The witty repartee between Donovan (Don, Van, etc) and the girls was good.
Donovan's voice was also interesting. I enjoy male written male point of view characters who really expose what they think.
What I wish was that the author gave me more of a vacation while I was reading this. With this excerpt being dialog heavy, I heard what was being said, but I didn't see the place as well or get much other sensory input.
I'm not sure where this excerpt is going, but I'd be willing to read a few more pages to see. Any book that can make me laugh 2-3 times in 18 pages is worthwhile as a mood-brightener alone.
