Publication history:


Depressed and lonely after an ugly divorce, Denise goes to Jamaica to get her groove back. The hotel where she stays stages sea turtle races daily, and given the nature of the turtles, it's a completely random event. The turtles have no inclination to go one direction over another, so you can never tell which turtle will wander to the finish line first. But there's a tall, handsome man who always wins his bets.
