About the Author
On a Martini Bianco bar terrace in the British Virgin Islands, Bacardi rum executive Sam Bartleby receives
notice that he is fired. Worried about his financial future and the grim
prospects for his personal life, Bartleby discusses with his uncle Clive, an
unexplored business strategy that will allow him to stay in the Islands without
a job. His plan involves recruiting a sugar baby, and over drinks, Bartleby
finds the perfect candidate: Ethnographer Flower Parkwood, the why-not bohemian
friend of teleoperator Clarity Nice.
While Clive spends time with Clarity, Bartleby
spends the day with Flower trying to convince her of the benefits of being his
sugar baby, but Clarity´s friend refuses the slick executive’s propostion. He
persists; he will provide food, lodging, travel arrangements and valuable
personal guidance to her for the long term. To entice her, he pays for a large
shopping spree on the island of Tortola.
After a good meal in one of the island´s
nicest restaurants, Flower finally accepts Bartleby´s offer to board the
company boat, a wannabee-yacht, the 'Lady Moura'. She will be his sugar
baby for a few days while he carries out a business transaction for a marriage
and dating site named Oleanne. The deal allows Flower to bring her
friend Clarity onboard and together they collaborate on the dubious business
transaction with Bartleby and a man known as Chubby Caddy, an important client
of the Oleanne dating service.
