Brett is in Central America, away from her husband, Paul, when she meets his friend Eduard. Though unimpressed with him at first, the two soon launch into a passionate affair.

Unlike stable Paul, Eduard encourages Brett's dark side. Her sobriety soon slips out of her grasp, and she finds herself on a downward spiral of sneaking off for weeks with her lover and blacking out in hotels. Brett still has the clarity to see that she is destroying her life, but is unable to stop.

Though coming undone is something we all try to avoid, Love in Central America is a fiery, powerful novel, marrying tragedy and comedy, that reminds us that going off the rails is sometimes part of the ride.

'Cheating on your husband is like doing cocaine,' says Brett at one point. 'It's rarely pleasurable, but try quitting.'

MEDIA REVIEWS
an electrifying illustration of a bad romance, supercharged with breakneck dissolution * Daily Express *
What really sets this novel apart is [Martin's] wit. * Big Issue *
What really sets this novel apart is wit: the snappy one-liners which rescue Brett from being a regular tragic victim of addiction to a sassy chick who sizzles her way through most of the book. -- Jane Graham * Big Issue *
A flushed and riveting account of some desperately, deliciously bad choices -- Daniel Handler, bestselling author of We Are Pirates
Un-put-downable. Brett is a lovable heroine - a lusty, wrongheaded writer, flawed and rueful, yet charging ahead. She wants everything she knows is bad for her - alcohol, drugs, and to have violent, lurid sex with her husband's rapscallion banker - and we root for her all the way -- Rebecca Curtis, author of Twenty Grand
