Jayne Ann Krenz (aka Amanda Quick) does a good job of developing the platonic friendship of a man and woman into love. The man has a mysterious job and disappears for long periods of time---the woman writes science fiction novels. A trip to a South Pacific island and some harrowing escapades seal the deal. JAK did a nice job on this book.
