Pacific Paradise is the tale of two coming-of-age stories, one of a small island-nation, and the second of a young girl, the daughter of the nation's president. While citizens of Sumonajob battle between isolationism and an open country welcoming tourism, Mimi must decide which side to choose as her relationship with American businessman Jason Richards grows from hatred and misunderstanding to friendship and alliance. Among the subplots of the story include the European colonization of the island, the separation of political factions on the future of Sumonajob, and the various characters who show up throughout the story. Whether it's the weeklong crab races, the deadly trip down to Shanty Town, the abduction of Richards's secretary on their second day on the island, or the comings and goings of Luana and Jeanie, the story twists unexpectedly at every point.

This is a new approach to the complete story of the Bounty, from its disastrous crew selection, the Mutiny, incitement of Polynesian wars, trials, executions, pardons, kidnaps, rapes and enslavement to the brutal island murders. Make no mistake,it may have been the beginning of the Romantic Age but there was nothing romantic about the Mutiny on the Bounty, why did Fletcher Christian choose oblivion over common sense on that hot sunny morning so long ago? Was it because far from freeing the crew from a perceived oppression he was actually mentally unstable? Where exactly was Peter Heywood and why did half the crew choose certain death in an open boat rather than sail away with the mutineers? Just some of the questions answered in this book, for the first time the whole story, the complete story, including the voyage of the Pandora, sent to capture the men that dared steal one of His Majesties ships.
