The Riptide Ultra-Glide - Tim Dorsey
Brilliant Floridaphile, bighearted psychopath, and chipper tour guide Serge Storms takes a vacationing Midwestern couple (they're so nice!) on the ride of a lifetime in this insanely funny adventure from New York Times bestselling author Tim Dorsey
Now that they have some unexpected free time, freshly unemployed Wisconsinites Patrick and Barbara McDougal are going to treat themselves to a modest vacation in sunny Florida. Sitting poolside at a pretty motel, they're going to drown their sorrows in those fruity umbrella drinks.
But the motel they arrive at isn't quite the pastel paradise they saw on the web. Refused a refund and tight on money, they have no choice but to stay. Being Midwesterns, they'll make the best of a bad situation.
Except when bad goes to worse. They're robbed and everything is gone, including the ID they need to get on a plane and go back home. Plus, they're so broke they can't even take a bus. Too bad the police are no help. They're more intimidating than the criminals.
Stranded and alone, Pat and Barb need someone to rescue them.
Someone to show them a bright spot.
Someone to make the evildoers darkening the good name of the Sunshine state pay.
Someone who has the courage, the knowledge, and the all-out crazy to make these nice Midwestern tourists believe in Florida again.
That someone is who else? Serge Storms.
Welcome to Paradise!
