Living the easy life can be hard

Author Lynne Hinkey will read from her book Marina Melee at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20, at Blue Ridge Books in downtown Waynesville.

Marina Melee follows George Marshall, freshly divorced for the third time and fired from his “allowance” paying job in the family oil business. George and his friends stumble upon the idyllic island of São Jorge, where George buys a marina to show his skeptical father and family that he has what it takes to achieve business success without their assistance and without having to work too hard. At times raucous, at times touching, Marina Melee is a fun voyage to the Caribbean island of São Jorge, where living the easy life is hard work.
