June 1766 – Havana, Cuba
Adam Fletcher begins a life-altering quest when he travels to help deliver cargo in the West Indies. Not long after the Carolina Gypsy arrives in the bustling port of Havana, Cuba, Adam ventures out on his own to track down a man who he has been told may have information about his father.
His plans are complicated, however, when he ends up being taken hostage by the very men he hired as interpreters.
When his shipmates receive a ransom letter, they launch a desperate search to find him, but meanwhile, Adam plots his own escape from the hands of his captors. Once he discovers who’s behind it all, he starts thinking that maybe he should have left well-enough alone instead of trying to dig up secrets that were buried in the past.
Captured in the Caribbean is the second book in the Adam Fletcher Adventure Series of historical fiction novels. If you like fast-moving adventures, impetuous young heroes, suspense-filled plots, and a dash of romance, then you'll love Sara Whitford's entertaining series!

I felt like I was a kid again, reading far too long into the night ;-o
This book moved at a faster pace than book 1 (but I tend to feel that way about most series.) Because I was familiar with Adam from The Smugglers Gambit, it was a pleasure to see his growth and development as a character. And he is quite the character! Lol Loved the action. Loved the surprises - normally I'm pretty good at guessing what's coming. I think this will continue to be a fun series for me and my daughter (12) to enjoy. I am also going to recommend the series to my daughter's middle school humanities department. My daughter learned a lot of history while enjoying the fiction. Besides, who doesn't like a good story with pirates?! Looking forward book 3!
