Happy Pi Day! Today I've got an awesome stop on the lovely tour for SPY ISLAND, hosted by THE BOOK BABE'S BLOG TOURS! I'm very excited about the snazzy excerpt I have for you today! Read on to find out a bit about these exciting book!

Spy Island

Abby Maduro is a young girl living a purposeless existence when she rescues a handsome deserter from a German U-boat, Erich Seibold, who has washed ashore on her Caribbean island. Abigail hides Erich in the basement of her house and friendship and love blossom between the unlikely pair. Unbeknownst to Abby, St. Thomas is a hotbed of German spies and saboteurs who use their Hamburg steamers to aid the Kaiser's war effort. When island's German Consul, Lothar Langsdorff, discovers Erich's presence on the island, he forces him back into the conflict. Langsdorff blackmails Erich into committing sabotage and murder, throwing the whole island into chaos and plunging Abby headfirst into the dangerous world of German spies. When Erich is arrested, Abigail faces the ultimate test. But as long as Lothar Langsdorff is on the loose, Abby relies on her wits, bravery, and a little island magic to save Erich and rid her tranquil island of a nest of German spies.

Super-Duper Excerpt:
      Sometimes I get an uneasy feeling that Erich is here for a specific reason. For some terrible purpose. How can I not be suspicious when he says he only came here to escape the war? Sometimes late at night when I'm lying in bed, my mind races about the danger we're all in. I see knives gleaming in the moonlight, furtive pistols hiding under dinner jackets. And while I sit in the sewing room, the fear becomes so overwhelming I lose my ability to concentrate. The needle slips through my fingers, the pounding of my heart leaves me breathless.

       As the gramophone plays the same infuriating song over and over, "Your cunning little dimples and your baby hair, Your baby talk and baby walk and baby hair. Your baby smile makes life worthwhile. You're just as sweet as you can be," I feel like my whole world is caving in. I stand up, mutter some excuse about needing fresh air, then escape to the privacy of my room where I stroke Teddy's feathers in an attempt to assuage my fears as the tears start streaming down my face. It all boils down to one fact. I have put everyone at risk by harboring an enemy soldier. For all I know he might even be a saboteur.

      When the strain becomes too great, I decide to take action. I jot down a message telling Erich to meet me in Emancipation Park on Sunday, then I slip outside and shove it under his door. There, it's done. No matter what happens, I will get to the bottom of this.If Erich is indeed a German spy or saboteur, I will muster up the courage and ask him to leave, regardless of the consequences.
