Jolie Rouge: A Swashbuckling Tale of Adventure and Intrigue by Rick Ley

Excerpt from “Chapter 4 – Carr Residence – Stock Island, Florida”:

Their plane touched down with nary a bump or jostle before taxiing
the short distance to the terminal without hitting Rey’s moose, a
palm tree, an alligator, or any other creature of the Deep South. When the
flight attendant finally announced that they could unbuckle their seat belts,
the plane full of happy vacationers jumped impulsively to their feet to start
rummaging through the overhead compartments for their bags. Cat and
Damon, who were now seated opposite each other when Rey had lost his
choice seating because of an ill-advised trip to the lavatory, were among the
throng of aisle-seaters who quickly procured their belongings and anxiously
awaited their turn to do the penguin march toward the front of the
plane. That was, until an announcement over the PA system informed the
passengers that a slight technical difficulty at the front of the aircraft would
delay their exit a little while longer.
