  • (1888PressRelease) August 26, 2021 - Jack Spencer made a fatal mistake. One that landed him in the Pacific, literally without a paddle. As he struggles to survive the elements that the perilous blue throws at him, Jack comes to terms with the truth. He's guilty. The most prevalent mistake: an affair with the woman about to marry his best friend. But does the punishment of being set adrift on the ocean warrant the crime? Only he can answer, only one person can save him.

    As soon as Myra Spencer reaches Hawaii, her senses shift into overdrive. Her son, Jack, is missing. But everyone downplays his vanishing act as part of a playful charade, too much of a good thing, (rumors of a mysterious beauty surface) and copious amounts of booze before a wedding that will never take place. But as his mother, Myra knows better. Jack's in trouble. Only she has no way to prove it—other than the suspicions her heart dictates.

    Dumbfounded, Kai Hale holds the paddle belonging to his missing canoe in hand. The canoe is his lifeline to make amends with a mounting debt. Slowly his life collides with the Spencers, and the reality of Jack's disappearance is tied to his canoe. But why? That is the question everyone is desperate to answer. What Jack can't know is that he's on course with destiny. A path that leads him to an island and people who await his arrival. An island not charted on anyone's map. The truth changes everything.
